“It’s stand-up comedy – but it’s also the story of a rebel who goes into a very conservative place and actually gets a lot done.” — 48 Hills

Politician and comedian Tom Ammiano’s magical mystery venture into the California State Assembly. The hilarious solo show gives audiences a peak into the world of politics from an insider as they join Assembly-member Tom while he navigates the Sacramento political scene in an effort to take the a** out of assembly. Tom’s frequent rollicking encounters at the state capitol with fervent government officials, combative colleagues, and polarized voter’s shed light on a culture that can only emerge in a city fueled by politics.

Tom came out as the first openly gay teacher in SF in 1975 and has since been at the forefront of reform on many issues including LGBTQ rights, affordable housing, education, labor, immigration, prisons, and marijuana. Aside from his political career, Tom has been a standup comic since 1980. His on-stage moniker “The Mother of Gay Comedy” emerged after he pioneered gay comedy night at the Valencia Rose Cabaret in San Francisco.
