The Comedy Nest says
On November 1st at 8pm The Comedy Nest features Elicia Sanchez!

The producer for this show is: Christan Leonard

The Comedy Nest is a a female focused, but not female exclusive comedy event that brings comics to the stage and happens every TUESDAY in the Grotto at the Rendezvous. Every night has 20 open mic spots to fill, a featured comic and a magnanimous host to welcome the audience, as well as new comics and returning comics to the stage.

Sign up SUNDAYS by emailing comedynestseattle@gmail.com at NOON. Half the spots are reserved for self identifying female comics.

The doors open at 7:30pm and the show starts at 8pm. Comics get in for FREE. For every one else the cover is $5.00, and well worth the price of admission. The Rendezvous is 21+, so you and your guests must be 21 or older to perform or attend.

Feature: Elicia Sanchez

A queer, pansexual, mixed-race, non-binary Seattle-based comedian, writer and comic book reader, Elicia Sanchez has a lot of identities and has been talking about them all over the United States since 2010. Their 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 their own instances of social incompetence while also skewering oppressive social norms. They have been called "fearless" by City Arts Magazine, "a grumpy nugget of delight," by writer/author Lindy West, "a local favorite," by 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 host of the CNN series United Shades of America, once said, "Elicia Sanchez is the truth." Elicia has performed at the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Bumbershoot, Emerald City Comicon, The Big Sky Comedy Festival, All Jane Comedy Festival, Autostraddle.com's annual LGBTQ event A-Camp, has appeared on NPR, was featured in the award-winning LGBTQ documentary short, Oh, I Get It and in 2016 was named one of “4 Latinx Comedians You Need To Know Right Now Before They Blow Up” by HelloGiggles.com. They currently produce five monthly comedy shows in Seattle (Wine Shots: Comedy’s Happiest Hour, Not Too Late with Elicia Sanchez, The Enematic Cinematic LIVES!!, Karajokey, Fist & Shout) and are also the host of the Seattle branch of The Moth StorySlam.
