FEATURING KATE WILLETT.
GUEST HOST BETHANY VAN DELFT.
Fugitive Comedy Night brings us some of the best comics the area has to offer.
Headliner Kate Willett
Kate is a comedian, actress, and writer whose raunchy feminist storytelling is both smart and relatable. Her 15-minute special premiered on Netflix’s “Comedy Lineup” in 2018. She’s the cohost of the “Reply Guys” podcast. Kate has been a correspondent for “The Jim Jeffries Show” (now airing on Comedy Central), has been featured on Viceland’s “Flophouse,” and her appearance on Comedy Central’s “This is Not Happening” was on Splitsider’s list of “2016’s Best Late Night Standup Sets.” Kate toured with Margaret Cho nationally and internationally as well as many other A-list comics. She has appeared in the Just for Laughs Montreal Comedy Festival, Limestone Comedy Festival, High Plains, Big Sky Festival, Bridgetown Comedy Festival, San Francisco Sketchfest (five years in a row), and most recently Laughing Skull. She was a “Comic to Watch” at the LA Riot festival. Her comedy album “Glass Gutter” was released in 2017.
Guest Host Bethany Van Delft
Bethany’s “hip & grounded, laid back delivery” has earned her the honor of performing at the prestigious Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal, and notable appearances on Comedy Central, TV Guide Channel, and NickMom. Her monthly show, “Artisanal Comedy,” has been named “one of the top indie nights to check out.” Unashamedly in touch with her inner nerd, Bethany enjoys being a panelist on “You’re the Expert” and “Literary Death Match,” and is thrilled to be Mainstage storyteller and host for The Moth.
Opener Kwasi Mensah
Kwasi bridges the gap between insightful observations about race and still thinking he could be a Power Ranger when he was 15. He’s opened for SNL’s Sasheer Zamata, Aparna Nancherla, and W. Kamau Bell. He also co-produces “Laughing Liberally Boston,” a show that combines comedy with progressive politics. He’s been featured in SF Sketchfest, the Boston Comedy Festival, The Comedy Exposition in Chicago, and recently recorded his first hour of stand up titled, “Not From Around Here.”
