提起女脱口秀演员，人们总是说到Ali Wong, 了不起的麦瑟尔夫人。其实在北京就有很多长期活跃在本地舞台的女性喜剧演员，通过英文脱口秀、即兴喜剧方式，用幽默感解构社会，表达自我。这次我们邀请了喜剧舞台的另一类少数派, Gay一起，为你奉献一场没有直男癌和突破性别刻板印象的喜剧演出。
When people talk about female comedians, they always bring up Ali Wong, and the hot-hit TV show The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Do you know there are actually a bunch of active female comedians (stand-up, improv) here in Beijing? We also invite the under-represented group - gays - to join us, and present to you a gender-friendly comedy night!
Before the comedy show, join the Beijing Broads for a free improv comedy workshop from 4-6pm before the show. This workshop is designed as a fun, easy introduction to a comedy style where everything is created cooperatively on the spot. All ages over 18, languages, genders, and species welcome. The Broads are China's first all-female improv group, founded with the intention to give women a platform to perform without being constricted only to the roles women traditionally play, pushing back against stereotypes of women in comedy.

玖姑 / Evangeline Z
Evangeline Z is a feminist activist and social innovator. She founded a program called "女力：Femployee“ which interviews females who work in male-dominated industries about their career and experience of being "the minority" in such fields as rapper, comedian, racecar driver and chef. Inspired by these interviewees, Evangeline pursued her own goals of using stand-up comedy and rapping to discuss about gender inequality and white supremacy. In 2017, she produced a chinese rap MV called "Our Vagina, Ourselves", which received 218K views on FB.
(Translated from Chinglish): My name is Curtis, I don’t speak Chinese, but they asked me to write this. I work in Beijing. I am a teacher, but NOT an English teacher. [You may have missed my emphasis in that sentence because Chinese is a tonal language.] I teach drama! (Are you surprised??) It took me three hours to write this [the Chinese version]. I am very proud [of my Chinese version].
Fact about Daniel Dan：He doesn’t like any city that gets wet too much, because he feels like it is a constant reminder.
瑞琪 / Eva Hart
Hello my name is Eva Hart, I did my bachelor’s degree in environmental engineering and my master’s degree in studio art. Now I’m doing standup comedy in Beijing. I think I’m working my way down. Maybe the next time you see me I’ll be fighting old ladies on the street for plastic bottles, although that would fulfill my environmental engineering degree I guess.
I think if we could all be nice to one another, the world would be a much better place.

what more do you need?
I am fiery and moist.
I like using gay as a good word and love interracial swearing.
I sing about love and unconventional romance.
All whilst toning my calves of steel.

I have two dreams: world peace and acting. I’m working with the political affairs to help contribute to the former and going up on the stage to do standup in my spare time for the latter!
