Brava’s 4th Annual New Year’s Eve Comedy Fiesta: Latino Power Edition is the Mission District’s one-stop New Year’s Eve destination for stand-up comedy lovers, dancing fools, feministas, radical dudes, non-binary ballers, and progressive party animals.
On the brink of the most bizarre presidential election in US history, it is time for all funny brown people to come to the aid of sanity by building a wall of power punch lines for everyone to enjoy (except Donald Trump.)
Leading the charge as Comedy Fiesta’s host is Marga Gomez, voted “Best San Francisco Comedian” by SF Weekly, Bay Area Reporter and San Francisco Bay Guardian. Headlining the night will be Lydia Popovich (Comedy Central, Punchline SF.) Special guests will include Chris Storin (“Reyes of Comedy” with Paul Rodriguez)); Los Angeles based playwright and Chicana LGBT comedy icon Monica Palacios (Culture Clash, GO Magazine’s annual ‘100 Women We Love’); Baruch Porras-Hernandez (KQED Arts, Bawdy Storytelling, The Moth)and hilarious local party starter; Betty Pazmiño (My Dinner w/ Betty, SF Carnaval.) Immediately following the comedy performances, will be "Brava's Countdown Dance Party" to ring in the New Year with free champagne, no-host bar, munchies, party favors and dancing until 1am. Proceeds will benefit Brava Theater Center.
