Charlotte comedian, Mimi Benfield, is truly a Gay of Sunshine. She’s funny, candid and runs a Twitter page that’s the perfect place to “accidentally” lose a couple of hours.
In half a decade onstage she’s conquered venues from Ontario to Hawaii and beyond, embarked upon multiple comedy tours and participated in events alongside industry icons like Margaret Cho, Jen Kirkman, & Carlos Mencia. while sharing her unique take on family, current events & being a lesbian in the south.
A woman of rare vision, she combined twin passions for humor and tattoos in the groundbreaking “Laugh Ink."
You can find her Wednesdays at Crown Station with her adorable pooch, Fiona, hosting a comedy mic together alongside some of Charlotte's best & worst comedians!
She recently did a 12 city Pride tour & is planning for another in 2018.
She's also created an alter-ego for the stage, Creepy Creeperton, that's beginning to get paid more than her.
Creepy Creeperton is a person (of sorts) without restrictions or convictions. He says all the things we shouldn't say but often wish we could. He believes in the purest forms of creepiness & keeps it real on a level most couldn't understand or tolerate. Whether male or female, queer or...whatever else there is, he's definitely into it & wants to be more...in to it. Keep It Creepy.
