“A polished spitfire.”— THE NEW YORK TIMES


[Luna] a walking ball of comic defiance,

which is exactly what stand-up is supposed to be.”— LA WEEKLY


“…the blistering self-assurance of Gypsy Rose Lee.”— TALKIN’ BROADWAY

 

“Selene Luna effortlessly initiates the theme of the tour that Margaret Cho amplifies when she takes center stage — interweaving the polarizing political and social climate with a motivating message whilst simultaneously providing strong comedic rhetoric. Doing this is quite difficult without creating an awkward or divergent environment. However, Luna sets the precedent. By the time Cho takes to the microphone, Luna has wasted no time.” — OUT IN JERSEY

“Cho’s national tour opener, Selene Luna, also found humor in the White

House, joking that the current administration just may be our

punishment for avoiding the Y2K apocalypse that might have been.

Luna also generated lots of laughs sharing her love of being a

newlywed and her terrifying near-death experience of making love

on memory foam.”— REBELLIOUS MAGAZINE


“A delightful emotional rollercoaster… makes you leave the theater

satisfied that you are perfect just the way you are! … This show has

EVERYTHING I look for in an evening of entertainment.”— FRONTIERS MAGAZINE
