Meet the comic Daniel Webb. The openly queer comic just landed its first stand-up comedy special, which hits streaming services today.
Webb’s name may sound new, although he has worked in comedy for years, including associations with Margaret Cho and Wanda Sykes. Sykes, in particular, described it in three words: “Riotous. Queer. Star.”

Hoe’s Parade, filmed live at the Rose Bowl in Los Angeles, finds Webb reflecting on life as a gay man, COVID-19, Trump, #BlackLivesMatter, and more. Oh, and he gets down to the piano playing some very weird (and very funny) tunes of his own.
Hoe’s Parade also marks the first time an openly gay man has filmed a Rose Bowl comedy special. “I feel so lucky to have been the first queer person to perform a comedy at the Rose Bowl, but they really should have given me a trophy,” Webb said in a statement.
Take a look, and a little laugh. Hoe’s Parade hits iTunes and Amazon today.
