Show: C’mon Wednesday

Location: The West End

Queens Seen: Terra Hyman (@terhyman)

It’s a new year and a new Terra Hyman! Well, sorta. Kinda. Not really. Terra Hyman is a comedy queen who has a story, or ten, to tell. With a few numbers throw in here and there, C’mon Wednesday is a staple of the West End. If you’ve been to a Terra show before, expect the expected. She has her classic numbers and she’s destined to perform them. Like her “Paparazzi” mix to “Sweet Transvestite,” Terra will give you them all. The cabaret space at The West End is an intimate enough room that allows the host to get up close and personal with their guests. And Terra is never afraid to meet the crowd. Whether its Deborah the scene stealing mom or Connor the white boy with the greatest booty on the planet, Terra leaves every C’mon Wednesday with at least one new friend. Whether they’ll come back, that’s up to them to decide. We met both Deborah and Connor during an epic rendition of musical shots. Usually Terra provides wonderful color commentary, but this go around, she was distracted by the butt. But can we blame her? It’s all fun and games, between the stories, mixes, and ability to interact and improvise, Terra is truly a stellar drag comedian. She’ll never drop a beat. She always has something to fill the space. And that is a skill that many lack.
If you’re feeling down on a Wednesday night, Terra Hyman and The West End will pick you up with C’mon Wendsday. Where else can you see an entertaining show with a $20 open bar deal? Nowhere, that’s where.
