Event description

Description

This evening of stand-up comedy features dynamic women of the Sisters Of Comedy series. Under the direction of Agunda Okeyo, Sisters of Comedy is an ongoing production at Carolines on Broadway, showcasing a who’s who of black women in stand-up. Okeyo has worked with HBO’s Insecure Yvonne Orji, Two Dope Queen’s Phoebe Robinson, Def Comedy Jam’s Zainab Johnson, and many many more.

The show will feature comedians Yamaneika Saunders (Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon), Gina Yashere (The Daily Show with Trevor Noah), Aparna Nancharla (Comedy Central's Corporate), Del Harrison (Gotham Comedy Live), hosted by Agunda Okeyo (Creator, Producer).

The comedy show will be followed by a conversation exploring this winning era for Black women in comedy and hardships of the journey. We will kick off the evening with a pre-reception in our Langston Hughes Lobby.
