If you are laughing at Elvira's act, you are gay. (3:03)

OH, THIS IS NICE.

FIVE MINUTES AGO,WE WERE LAUGHING

HAVING A GOOD TIME

THEN I MENTION I'M A LESBIAN

AND YOU'RE LIKE,"HA, HA, HA, HUH?"

( laughter )

VERY WELL,I WILL GIVE YOU A MOMENT

TO LET THE REALITY SINK IN.

WELL, YOU'RE LIKE...

"IF YOU'RE A LESBIAN...

"AND WE WERE LAUGHING AT YOU...

"OW.

DOES THAT MAKE US GAY?"

( laughter )

SO, LET ME REASSURE YOU-- YES.

( laughter )

YES, IT DOES.

LET THE PLAY BEGIN!

( cheering )

THE THING IS,I NEVER WORRY

ABOUT HOW AN AUDIENCEIS GOING TO REACT

BECAUSE I ALWAYS LOOK AT ITFROM MY PARENTS' POINT OF VIEW.

MY PARENTS ARE TWO TINY LITTLEEASTERN-EUROPEAN IMMIGRANTS.

THEY CAME OVER FROM A WAR-TORNCOUNTRY IN EASTERN EUROPE.

THEY SETTLED IN CANADA.

I DON'T KNOW WHY.

BUT THEY DID,AND THERE THEY DECIDED

TO HAVE ONLY ONE CHILD...

( laughter )

TO GIVE HER EVERY ADVANTAGETHEY NEVER HAD

AND THIS IS WHAT THEY GET.

( laughter and applause )

ONLY CHILD; STANDUP COMIC;LESBIAN.

OH, THE SCRAPBOOKS OVERFLOWAT THEIR PLACE.

( with East-European accent ):"THIS VAS THE UNIVERSITYSHE VAS SUPPOSED TO GO TO.

( laughter )

"THIS VAS THE MANSHE VAS SUPPOSED TO MARRY.

( laughter )

"THIS VASHER FIRST GIRLFRIEND...

"BRENDA.

THEY SAID THEY WERE ROOMMATES."

( laughter and applause )

( chuckles )

YOU GOT TO UNDERSTAND.

IT WAS HARD ENOUGHFOR MY PARENTS

TO DEAL WITH MEWANTING TO BE COMEDIENNE

LET ALONE THE GAY THINGTHAT CAME LATER.

WHEN I FIRST STARTEDDOING COMEDY

I WASN'T DOING GAY MATERIAL

AND MY PARENTS WOULD JUSTCOME TO THE SHOWS

AND THEY'D JUSTSTARE AT PEOPLE LAUGHING

AND THEN THEY'D GO HOME

SIT ACROSS THE KITCHEN TABLEFROM EACH OTHER

STIRRING THEIR COFFEE,GOING, "I DON'T KNOW.

( laughter )

"WHO VAS FUNNY IN YOUR FAMILY?

( laughter )

NOBODY FUNNY IN MINE.I DON'T..."

NOW THEY'LL COME AND SEE A SHOW

GO HOME AND STIR THEIR COFFEE,AND GO, "I DON'T KNOW.

"WHO VAS GAY IN YOUR FAMILY?

IT'S NOT MY SIDE--I KNOW THAT FOR ( bleep ) SURE."

( laughter )
