Host & Stand-Up Comedian: Aurora Singh
Some call her a rare breed, I would agree- Aurora Singh blessed her immigrant parents with her arrival into the world in January 1992 and continuously doused her sparkle upon the world as she grew up in Sacramento, California in the good ol’ Catholic school system. You won’t regret the deep belly laughs you experience as a result of her hilarious straight forward real comedy. Five years of comedy on her belt performing with great names like Kabir Singh (Kabeezy), Joey Diaz, Steve Simone, Taylor Tomlinson, and Felipe Esparza! Her mom has even been quoted saying, “she’s hilarious!” Ready to ride the giggle train? You won’t be disappointed!
Headliner & Stand-Up Comedian: Aivy Cordova
Stand-Up Comedian: Emma Haney
Since 2010, Emma Haney has been delighting audiences with her dry, absurdist wit at indie music clubs, theaters and colleges up and down the West Coast. She has been featured in the Las Vegas women’s World Series of comedy, was apart of SF Sketchfest 2019 and most recently has won a beauty contest in monopoly. For the second time. Humble brag.
Stand-Up Comedian: Nicole Eichenberg
Nicole Eichenberg looks Iike what would happen if Janeane Garofalo and Daria had a baby using Danny de Vito as a sperm donor. You can see her performing stand-up comedy all over California in towns no one has heard of.
Stand-Up Comedian: Rhonda Ransdell
Newcomer Rhonda Ransdell, who can be seen at Blacktop comedy, burst onto the Sacramento Area scene in 2018. Hear her unique take on life, relationships and how to be an unexpected single parent, as she entertains us as a new member of the Funny Femmes lineup. When not on stage she writes her material by running around Roseville, leashing in her growing daughters, pondering the universe and trying to make sense of where she fits into this ever changing, crazy world.
Improviser: Shoana Hunt
Shoana (she/they) was born at a remarkably early age, and was raised in the local community theaters by the many ghosts that reside in them. She has spent most of her life lying- er, um... making up stories, and attempting to make people laugh through bad puns and finger guns. She is a recent graduate of Sierra College and will be attending Columbia College Chicago in the fall for Theatre Arts. Check out more of her projects, adventures, and endeavors on Instagram @officialshoanathunt !!
Improviser: Jess Deprez
Jess is delighted to perform on the same stage as so many talented ladies in FUNNY FEMMES Fierce Comedy. She brings more than 10 years of improv experience to the stage for your enjoyment. When she is not performing improv or trying to pay the bills (or both), she enjoys participating in intense staring contests with her dog.
Improviser: Priya Kumar
Priya is an improviser in the Sacramento area who hopes to bring you laughs and maybe tears (the good kind). When she’s not playing on the stage with many of the amazing improvisers she’s met over the years, you’ll find her daydreaming mostly, and contemplating reality.
Improviser & Funny Femmes Producer: Ciara Cumiskey
Student of comedy, art, and life, Ciara is a Blacktop performer, organizer, and teacher. She wears many hats, often with a feather, and speckled with paint. Ciara started producing shows last year with the Camp Fire Relief Fundraiser, followed by the Funny Femmes: Fierce Comedy series. Ciara is an improviser, sketch comedy actress, graphic designer, and visual artist.
