Mimi Gonzalez is a seasoned comedian who takes the audience on a wild ride from the profound to the profane. Political, bawdy, irreverant and hysterical, her ferocious idealism of inclusion has been embraced by colleges, Prides, comedy clubs, resorts, festivals, cruises, panels and even battlefields. She’s answered the call of duty to the U.S. armed forces and made them laugh in Iraq, Afghanistan, Bosnia, Kosovo, Korea, Japan and Guam.
Her television appearances include: LOGO’s “One Night Stand Up,” the “Today” show, Mo Gaffney’s “Women Aloud,” “Ellen,” “Que Loco,” “Funny is Funny,” and “Latino Laugh Festival.”
She’s performed what she calls “random acts of publishing” alongside her comedy career and has contributed to national magazines, online content and been featured in four literary and comedic anthologies.

Yayne Abeba's comedy makes you sit-up straight in your chair and listen because she's got something to say. Yayne excels in the way she rolls jokes off that edge of comfort and finesses it with a #TellItLikeItIs teflon charm. #ColorHerSmart and powerful! Growing up in the diverse world of Haight Ashbury, she gives us glimpses at different cultures: Ethiopian, American, millennials, and you will belly laugh when she gets rolling on dumb folks -- seriously.
Krista Fatka is a charming crowd-pleaser, a sarcastic surrealist, and a retired trapeze artist. Her stand-up is just one reason why people have called her, "so brave" over the years. She won first place at the 2017 Sacramento Stand-up Comedy Competition and has been featured at Outside Lands and SF Sketchfest. You can catch her at her regular show The Charm Offensive at The SF Punch Line.
