Daniel Webb brings Queer Southern Charm to stages across Los Angeles. From performing in drag as Toyota Lopez to dazzling audiences with stories of crippling single-dom, Webb’s bright disposition and bubbly nature evokes neo southern hospitality.



Natalie Durkin (TribeLA Magazine): Give yourself and your work a tagline and tell us why.
Daniel Webb: Only Gay When I’m Having Sex.


ND: What got you started in comedy? What is the reason you are here today?

DW: I was in a bunch of bands in Austin, Texas that all broke up, so instead of starting another band I decided to start comedy, because how could things get any worse? I moved to Los Angeles to pursue comedy and exacerbate my body dysmorphia.



ND: How do you hope to influence your audience?

DW: Make them laugh at everything and hopefully help them realize queer people are normal or whatever.


ND: What do you do when your creativity is blocked?

DW: I play Marble Madness.


ND: What fires you up and gives you energy?

DW: Evangelicals and other bigots who claim a moral authority but support a president and politicians that f–k around on their waves, use illegal money to pay them off, and let them get away with it because it’s heterosexual in nature.


ND: Can you tell us a little known fact?

DW: Nancy Pelosi is really Amelia Earhart just reassembled with newer teeth.


ND: Where is your favorite place in Los Angeles and why?

DW: Selena’s star on the Walk of Fame.


ND: Where is your favorite comedy club to perform?

ND: Do you engage in other art forms? What mediums of art inspire you?
DW: I’ve played the piano for over 30 years, I’m a half-assed drag queen, and I have sex with men.


ND: How do you make comedy? Briefly chronicle your creative process.

DW: I make comedy in many different ways, usually by exposing other people’s bullshit or just commenting on The Bachelor; usually it’s all based on trash.


ND: What is the best advice you’ve received and the best advice you can impart onto us?
DW: Never dance on a round table.


ND: Any closing words?

DW: Rachel Maddow is appropriating Twink culture and it’s time for it to stop!
