Luna Malbroux will be our emcee this year and we couldn’t be more thrilled! A comedian, activist and writer, Luna wears many hats. Noted as a Woman to Watch by KQED, she is the creator of EquiTable, a downloadable app that made international headlines for satirically solving the wage gap and providing “reparations, one meal at a time.”
Kelly Anneken is an Oakland-based funny person and all-around swell gal who performs standup comedy. Kelly has appeared at SF Sketchfest, Green Gravel Comedy Festival, and Boston’s Women in Comedy Festival and is well-known as the co-host of two internationally popular TV recap podcasts, Up Yours, Downstairs! and Red All Over.
San Francisco’s Mad Mama and the Bona Fide Few are best described as “whiskey-soaked Americana.” Fronted by Mad Mama, “the perfect blend of smart and crazy which makes her both desirable and dangerous,” they perform original songs and feature music from artists like Johnny Cash, Social Distortion, and Hank Williams, Sr.
Aireene Espiritu is a singer/songwriter playing mostly original songs accompanied by Latin/African rhythms, folk and bluegrass pickings and inspirations from gospel music – a mix of stompin’, swayin’, and timeless Americana. Born in the Philippines, she moved to the US at 10 years old, growing up in the third culture: the old country, the new country and a blend of both worlds.
Join us for the VIP reception before the show, and savor delicious hors d’oeuvres, refreshing beverages and Aireene Espiritu’s exclusive musical performance!
Brava Theater Center – 2781 24th Street, San Francisco
