Welcome to the collaboration of a lifetime! Two incredible comedy worlds are coming together in one sensational show!
”¿Dónde Está Mi Comedy?” has been a trailblazer in showcasing the outstanding talent and cultural impact of Latin-American comedians in the Bay Area since 2016. From sold-out shows at SF Sketchfest to prestigious venues like KQED, they've been spreading laughter, chistes, besos, and amor all around! Host and creator, Baruch Porras Hernandez, has been uplifting Latinx/a/o/e artists' voices for over a decade, making this collaboration a truly special event. The show has featured comedy legends like Marga Gomez, Alejandro Ochoa, Eloisa Bravo, and more! We’re thrilled to have the privilege of hosting them at Safe Words this month for an intersectional queer, latin, show!
Safe Words Comedy Showcase, brought to you by Team Wonder Dave, has been creating safe spaces for queer audiences and accelerating the careers of queer comedians. This monthly queer comedy event at the SF Eagle Bar in San Francisco's Leather Cultural District is where hilarity and inclusivity converge. With diverse lineups, featuring established queer comedians and rising talents, it's the perfect stage for unique perspectives and clever punchlines. Covered by the Bay Area Reporter and featured on the podcast "Stereotypes," Safe Words is the ultimate destination for an unforgettable night of laughs and good vibes.
So, mark your calendars for August 23rd, and join us for a sensational fusion of Latinx/a/o/e comedy and queer humor! Get ready to laugh, connect, and celebrate the power of laughter that unites us all. This is one comedy event you won't want to miss! Follow us on social media for updates and behind-the-scenes fun. Let's come together for a night of joy, camaraderie, and the magic of comedy!
