Suzanne Westenhoefer may not have been the first openly gay comic — her friend Kate Clinton beat her to that punch — but she did help pave the way for the many we’re blessed with today. She returns to the Birchmere for an annual stop, where she’s sure to talk about her budding career as a web and film actor. Saturday, Feb. 4, at 7:30 p.m. The Birchmere, 3701 Mt. Vernon Ave., Alexandria. Tickets are $45. Call 703-549-7500 or visit birchmere.com.
