Poppy Champlin, Comedian

  • Brooklyn Coffee Tea & Guest House 209 Douglas Ave Providence, RI 02908 USA (map)

"Funny Stuff, Really Funny"... Joan Rivers

Come see for yourself as we welcome Poppy, one of the original queer queens of comedy to our stage. We've been told the newly remodeled Brooklyn Coffee Tea and Guest House is warm and inviting, almost like being in someone's home which makes it the perfect spot to meet and showcase this fabulous entertainer.

Poppy’s observational style of humor tackles tough subjects with ease. In this comedienne’s hands we can laugh at life’s most formidable perils... and laughter that ravages fear is the best kind of all. She is one of the quickest witted comedians working either coast today. Besides Poppy’s deep comedic chops, she has a good voice that she puts to use during each performance. She erupts onto the stage, fearless, upbeat and energetic spitting out jokes, quips, songs, impressions and even birdcalls. Her stand-up pedigree is extensive: from being the winner of America’s Funniest Real Woman on The Joan Rivers Show, then featured on Entertainment Tonight. Her television appearances include Showtime, LOGO, Comics Unleashed, Comedy Central, VH-1, HBO and Oprah. Poppy’s’ shows can be described as spin art – “No two alike.”

Now residing in Rhode Island, Poppy tours and teaches a stand-up comedy class at The Courthouse Center for the Arts.

“Poppy was a freakin’ ball of comedic thunder,” says one fan “The best comedian I have seen since Whoopi Goldberg,” says another.
