Third Thursday women's open mic 10/19
- As the witching hour approaches and the veil starts to lift between
the worlds, come enjoy an evening of fine talent, Thursday Oct. 19.
All women are welcome.
Prepare to laugh as we get tickled by our guests, the great comic duo
of KAREN RIPLEY and ANNIE LARSON. Famous for her straight-faced one
liners, Karen has been on the comedy scene since 1977, performing all
over the US. Her works include song collection "I Survived a Fem,"
CD's "Born Butch" and "The Lesbian Comedy Collection." Annie has
been performing since childhood - in San Francisco and Vancouver
Fringe Festivals, George Coates Performance Works, Venue Nine, the
Marsh, Women's Comedy radio, and film to name a few.
Together they sizzle: they both performed with "Over Our Heads"
improv comedy troupe, in Valerie Solanas' "Up Your Ass" in San
Francisco, at PS 122 in New York, they received the Best Musical
Comedy award at the SF Fringe Festival for "Show Me Where it Hurts,"
and last spring showcased their musical comedy, "Waiting for FEMA" at
the SF DivaFest.
We will also feature you, as either performer or audience member.
Drop in for some laughs and bring your songs, poems, prose,
instruments, voice or any other talent you might have.
NEW! Our "Artists in Resdience" evenings will allow women an
opportunity to sell their art - jewelry, paintings, books, poetry,
photography, ceramics, clothing, etc. during intermission and at the
end of the evening. We have space for one or two artists per event.
