ABOUT KAT EVASCO
Our comic headliner, Kat Evasco, began her career in stand up comedy at the famous open mic at Brainwash in San Francisco in March of 2007. With dedication and respect for the craft, she continues to perform all over the San Francisco Bay Area at venues including the legendary Purple Onion, the San Jose Improv, the Napa Valley Opera House, the Montblue Casino (Lake Tahoe), and the Haha Cafe (N. Hollywood). Kat is part of the Five Funny Females Festival, has competed in the San Francisco International Comedy Competition 2010, the same competition known for discovering Robin Williams and Ellen Degeneres. In November of 2010, Kat opened for the amazing Marga Gomez at Le Pena in Berkeley and was invited by Marga to perform at the Berkeley GAY COMEDY FESTIVAL in June of this year.
Pinays Maintaining Sisterhood Through Art (PMSTA), was founded in November 2007 by a group of former cast mates from the Women's Show called, "The Fountain of Youth is a 16 oz Jar of Vaseline," directed by Gayle Romasanta. With much inspiration, the cast mates, Andrea Almario, Aureen Almario, Ann Borja, Kat Evasco, Jamie Nallas, Gayle Romasanta, Tonilyn Sideco, Maggie Suarez-Calixton, Ava Tong, and Nicole Villanueva, decided to open new doors for other women who can voice out their struggles and accomplishments.
Pinays Maintaining Sisterhood Through Art (PMSTA) strives to foster and develop strong, creative expressions and increased visibility of Filipino American women through theater, performance, literature, visual art, and music. OFFICIAL WEBSITE: http://pmsta.wordpress.com/
