Description

Anica - ConfirmedSam G - HL - ConfirmedSureni - ConfirmedGabby - Confirmed - needs to go lateAlex Love - ConfirmedEver wanted to see comedy that makes you say “I saw them before they blew up” instead of "Wow, this creepy dude makes me wish I stayed home."?

Then come to R.I.F. Comedy, aka Resistance is Fertile, the freshest standup comedy show featuring queers, queens, and 1 token peen. Every month at The Rite Spot, we feature a majority female and GNC lineup of rising stars in comedy. Comics discuss the joys of being a woman or GNC in a batshit world, the eternal struggle to harness one’s inner diva, and the art of resisting everything but our favorite vices.

Bonus track: We lovingly razz 1 male comic and invert the typical comedy show where only one woman is booked on a predominantly male lineup.

Comedians on this selective showcase have been featured on Conan, Last Comic Standing, Comedy Central, NBC, Viceland, MTV and more.


If tickets are out or closed online, feel free to come on by! We can always fit people at the bar!

She has performed at the 2016 and 2017 Lady Laughs Festivals (opening for headliner Mary Kennedy) and will perform in 2018 SF Sketchfest, selected as one of Audible’s Fresh Faces of Stand-Up.
