"Friday Comedy Headliner Show" Feminist Tendencies with Nina G. Karind Dobbins, Kelly Annekan and Qu

Feminist Tendencies with

Nina G is the world’s only female stuttering stand up comedian (or at least until she finds another). She is also a disability activist, storyteller, children's book author and educator. She brings her humor to help people confront and understand social justice issues such as disability, diversity, and equity.

When she isn’t performing at comedy clubs like the San Francisco Punchline or the Laugh Factory, she is playing colleges and presenting as a keynote speaker to children with disabilities and training professionals!

Check out her newest project, Once Upon an Accommodation: A Picture Book for all Ages! Nina writes from her own experience as a person with a Learning Disability and how to navigate the world of disability related accommodations in school.

Motor City native Karinda Dobbins was born into a politically active family of gifted storytellers and sharp wits. Her worldview was shaped by their accounts of protest, civil rights and empowerment, weighty subjects that were always leavened with humor. Whenever she heard the grownups laughing long past her bedtime, she took that as her cue to sneak out of her room and eavesdrop while they entertained themselves with Richard Pryor records. She not only listened, she learned, developing a relaxed style for delivering pungent commentary.

Responding to a dare from a girlfriend who challenged her to try making the crowd laugh at an open mic, Karinda finally took the stage at Woody’s Café, and killed. Sure, she tried to fill the seats with supportive family and friends, and true, she had no competition since nobody else had signed up for stage time, but everybody, from the show’s host to strangers in the audience, was amazed that she was able to do 15 funny minutes of stand-up material her first time onstage. (She’d shrewdly spent a month writing her act in preparation, never anticipating she’d be put under pressure to perform all of it at once.)

Kelly Annekan -Hi there! Welcome to this temporary splash page for KELLY ANNEKEN, funny person and all-around swell gal. Below, you will find a listing for other places KELLY ANNEKEN can be found online and IRL until such time as she purchases a real domain name and tricks a friend into building a website for her or figures out what a “widget" is, whichever comes first. She apologizes for the off-center picture, that’s really annoying.

FEMIKAZE: Kelly co-founded this all-female, all-funny sketch group with her hetero-life partner Isa Hopkins in 2011. They still can’t believe how cool the logo is.

A FUNNY NIGHT FOR COMEDY: Kelly has played “Kelly the Stage Manager" onstage for most of 2012, but is moving behind the scenes in preparation for the coming Mayan apocalypse. San Francisco’s funniest comedian Natasha Muse hosts a late-night talk show…early on Sunday evenings. It’s a funny night for comedy!

HOBO PANCAKES: The Managing Editor of this online humor journal is coincidentally also named “Kelly Anneken." She is clearly a humorous construct and not to be taken seriously. There is also a Hobo Pancakes YouTube channel, though this is only suitable for truly hardcore Fannekens and most definitely NSFW. If you insist on checking it out, this is the best place to start.
