About the Performers
Inspired by topical late night hosts and scathing insult comics, Kevin occupies a unique space in the DC comedy scene. A former-Republican-turned-practically-Communist potty-mouth, he has won crowds over with his hilarious allusions and references to gender, race, sexuality, class, and politics. He has described his style of comedy as "Imagine Trevor Noah...but as a big gay slut."
Chris Hook is a DC based comedian originally from Kentucky who finds humor in daily life. Forever a joiner, you can find him at his office book club, condo association, running club, alumni association chapter, or employee engagement groups whenever he's not glued to his couch watching television and wondering why he isn't training for a marathon.

She has been accepted into many of the World Series of Comedy national competitions, and she also has performed in many of the Gaylarious shows that were held at the old Riot Act theater in DC.

In addition, she has opened for Mimi Gonzalez and Jennie McNulty, in shows at Women's Week in Provincetown, MA; and she has organized informal shows on Olivia (lesbian) cruises, in which she has entertained many a lesbian traveler.
