Why There Are No Famous Gay Male Comedians; Ryan Field Books

Why There Are No Famous Gay Male Comedians

This is interesting, and it’s something I’ve noticed all my life. An anthropology student named Jason Frank is working on a study called, “Fairies and Funnies: Gay Men In Stand Up Comedy.” 

 Frank believes society prefers narratives about gay men leading lives of tragedy and thus can’t see gay comedians in the same light as their lesbian counterparts.

It is a good point, but I’m not sure how true it is. We do have Billy Eichner and Stephen Fry, plus a few others. I’m also not disputing it either. He could be spot on, because Fry and Eichner aren’t really household names like Ellen DeGeneres and Rosie. 

I only write books and stories with happy endings, however, we all know that’s not the case with most gay books and movies. The straights in the mainstream seem to want that depressing Brokeback Mountain tragedy. 

You can read it all, here. 



“A wonderful story that I loved. The characters were well developed, and strong. Gus: A sweet young man. Doing something for all the wrong reasons. Craig: his boyfriend, he’ll go along with anything Gus say. Henry: Gus father a no nonsense man, who’s husband died last year. I enjoyed this story.”
