De Anne Smith In Seattle! says


The brilliantly funny comic DeAnne Smith comes to Seattle for two shows at the Jewelbox Theater in the Rendezvous! With special guest Elicia Sanchez and host Danielle K.L. Gregoire.

Monday, June 13th
Shows at 7pm & 9pm

DeAnne Smith has performed all over the world, including the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the Iceland Comedy Festival and Just for Laughs Montreal and Chicago to name a few. She’s also been on TV in four countries, including on Last Comic Standing NBC, The Late Late Show on CBS, Canada’s The Comedy Network and CBC, Australia’s Channel 10 and ABC, and UK’s Sky TV.

The Montreal Gazette says DeAnne is “fresh, cutting…one of the finest wits in the country.” The UK’s Telegraph calls her “Smart. Very funny. Effortless charm lets her get away with murder.” She’s never actually murdered anyone.

It’s hard to know what to put in a bio, guys. DeAnne also really likes toast and has a hard time maintaining talking about myself in the third person.

Elicia Sanchez

A Seattle-based comedian, writer and comic book reader, Elicia Sanchez has been performing all over the West Coast since 2010. Her conversationally cynical, yet upbeat comedic style weaves together a unique mix of embarrassing personal stories, nerdy obsessions, social politics and possible overshares, making light of her own instances of social incompetence while also skewering oppressive social norms. She has been called "fearless" by City Arts Magazine, "a grumpy nugget of delight," by writer/activist Lindy West, "a local favorite," by Seattle alt weekly The Stranger and "a brilliant new voice everyone should know," by comedian Hari Kondabolu. Grammy Award winning singer/song-writer Kimya Dawson (The Moldy Peaches, Juno) has cited Sanchez as her 'favorite underground Northwest comedian' while W. Kamau Bell, comedian and creator/star of the critically acclaimed FXX series Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell, once said, "Elicia Sanchez is the truth."

Danielle K.L. Gregoire

Mostly Danielle wants you to know that DeAnne and Elicia are some of her favourite comedians in the WORLD, and that the shows happenn the day after her birthday, and hosting the shows is a ridiculous honour. She produces the Seattle Moth storySLAM, was the founder of the Comedy Womb, and is turning 37 (and proud of it!).
