April 9, 1992 | DENNIS MCLELLAN, Dennis McLellan is a Times staff writer who covers comedy regularly for O.C. Live!
In describing stand-up comic Sheila Kay, a reviewer once summed her up best by saying what she isn't: demure, coquettish and dainty. Put another way, she's overbearing, blunt and bawdy, with a sense of humor that tends to run the color of a Smurf. "I'm not a G-rated comic by any stretch of the imagination," concedes Kay, who's headlining at the Laff Stop in Newport Beach through Sunday.

KUDOS Honorary Oscar to Zaentz: Producer Saul Zaentz, who has won Oscars for "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" (1975) and "Amadeus" (1984), will receive the Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award during the 69th annual Academy Awards on March 24.

Comedian Jason Stuart came out about being gay last year, and so far his career has suffered no ill effects.
