Lady Parts Justice League
Lady Parts Justice League
Lady Parts Justice League (LPJL), the comedy-driven reproductive rights organization announces their summer tour bringing their unique combination of comedy, activism, and on-the-ground support to abortion clinics and audiences across the nation. After a wildly successful debut last summer, the 2018 Vagical Mystery Tour (VMT) returns with an even more ambitious national tour that promises not only to make audiences laugh and dance, but the VMT performers will work with fans to get them to become activists in their own communities.

Hosted by Lizz Winstead, LPJL Founder and the Co-Creator of The Daily Show, the Vagical Mystery Tour will travel to eight cities over the course of eight weeks beginning June 12. Lizz Winstead and her LPJL team will be joined on the road by various special guests including Aparna Nancherla (Conan, Corporate), Gina Yashere (Netflix,The Daily Show), Greg Proops (Whose Line Is It Anyway, The Smartest Man in the World Podcast), Maysoon Zayid (“I Got 99 Problems…” TED Talk), and Alonzo Bodden (Wait, Wait Don’t Tell Me; Winner of Last Comic Standing). Each show will not only present some of the most hilarious and sought after comedians in the business, but will include an informal post-show talkback with abortion providers and activists, who will inform the audience about what is at stake for abortion rights in their state, and offer tangible ways the audiences can roll up their sleeves to fight back.

But The Vagical Mystery Tour is not just performances. At each stop, Winstead and the other VMT performers will extend their activism by doing direct action work with local clinics; everything from escorting patients or bringing the staff a hot meal to lawn care and sometimes even remodeling. And because the 2018 VMT takes place during an election year, they will also partner with local non partisan grassroots organizers to help get out the vote.

These comics are doing it all to help make change this fall!

Lineup subject to change.
Alonzo Bodden
Alonzo Bodden
Alonzo’s material is “cynically good natured.” Well, the older he gets, the less good natured it’s gonna be. “‘What can I say? The stupid out there is wearing the man down.”

Bodden, who won Season 3 on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, is a regular on NPR’s “Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!”bio_smpix and “Comedy Congress,” as well as being a panelist on the Game Show Network’s “Mind of a Man.”

In 2011, he starred in the comedy special “Who’s Paying Attention” on Showtime, released a DVD, and hosts a podcast of the same name. That same year, he was a panelist on the syndicated show “Inside the Vault,” and voiced the character of Thunderon in the Power Rangers movie.

Bodden has also hosted Speed Channel’s “101 Cars You Must Drive” and “America’s Worst Driver” on Travel Channel. Alonzo’s first big comedy break came when he was on the “New Faces of Comedy” showcase at industry festival, Just For Laughs in Montreal.

Alonzo has made the rounds on the late night television circuit including appearances on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” “The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn,” and “The Keenen Ivory Wayans” show. His film credits include “Scary Movie 4,” “The Girl Next Door,” and “Bringing Down the House” starring Steve Martin and Queen Latifah.

Alonzo has traveled around the world entertaining USO troops from Iraq to Greenland.
