This is an all-women event and all women are welcome: an upbeat

enjoy fantastic entertainment.
Our features this month are comics KAREN RIPLEY and ANNIE LARSON.
Queer comic and improv master KAREN was recently featured in LOGO
TV's Wisecracks, and appears regularly at clubs, colleges, cruises,
and festivals around the country. Her laid back style will relax
and then surprise with a one-liner that will cause your head to fly
back with laughter. Material covers the bluest lesbian jokes to the
most thought provoking political insights. ANNIE is a gifted and
versatile comic actor, and has performed at many festivals and venues
throughout the Bay Area. Recent appearances include the role of Pat
in the US premiere of Michael Frayn's comedy Here, in San Francisco,
and as the paranoid, deluded, Countess Medussa Rappa in Iberia, a
surrealist travelogue by Eddy Falconer. Karen and Annie's improv
troupe, OVER OUR HEADS, was nominated for SF Cable Car awards.
Together they have written two musical comedies: Show Me Where It
Hurts, best musical comedy at the San Francisco Fringe Festival; and
Waiting For Fema, selected as new faces on the scene for the Diva
Fest Theater Project.
AND...the heart and soul of Third Thursday: YOU, either as performer
or audience member. Drop in for some laughs, songs, poems, prose,
instruments, spoken word, and any other talents you have. Each
performer has 5 minutes to do their thing. It is an evening rich
