With her short hair, newsboy cap, and glasses, Maggie Faris might give off a certain vibe. “I’m not a paper boy,” she tells an audience, “I’m just an adorable lesbian.” She’s perfectly comfortable sharing that fact. “No one cares anymore because it’s modern times,” she says. “No one gives a crap. I think gay people are a lot like left-handed people. There are not very many of us and we just scissor different.” She then explains scissoring. “It’s not a real thing, it’s something boys made up for their porn,” she notes. Faris, a Minneapolis native, has featured for Fortune Feimster, Michael Che, Maria Bamford, Daniel Tosh, Kathleen Madigan, and Louis Black, to name just a few. She’s also won several comedy competitions, including one that landed her a stint as the public-address announcer for the minor-league St. Paul Saints. She plans to follow up her first CD, Hot Lesbo Action, with a second, titled A Dingus Among Us, soon.
