San Diego native Mal Hall headlines LGBT comedy night on March 8

Headlining March’s Laugh Out Proud comedy show, San Diego’s only LGBT-oriented comedy night, Mal Hall is not afraid to be blunt.

“We need to start calling out assholes in our society,” Hall said. “We don’t anymore because we’re afraid of confrontation. We will watch someone leave the bathroom without washing their hands and not say anything about it. That’s disgusting.”

Hall’s stint for Laugh Out Proud is Thursday, March 8, at 8 p.m. at Martinis Above Fourth, 3940 Fourth Ave. He will be joined by local LGBT comedian Arthur Montalvo and Los Angeles-based LGBT comic Jiavani Linayao. The show’s co-producers, Sarah Burford and Sean Wherley, will round out the evening’s entertainment.

“We want comedians who are comfortable, respectful [and] understand how this place is different than any other comedy club or venue,” said Wherley, who is also doing a 15-minute set for the show. “We have smart audiences. We like to put up comedians who are smart.”
