Bay Area comics Kimberly Rose Wendt and Eloisa Bravo are the minds behind The BitchSlap!, a stand-up comedy show starring an exclusively all-female lineup. They’ll appear with more of the region’s edgiest women comics at this showcase, which aims to spotlight the best local up-and-coming talent from San Francisco and beyond. The BitchSlap! will feature Eloisa Bravo, Kimberly Rose Wendt, Leslie Small, Jen Dronsky and Kristee Ono. The headliner for the evening is Caitlin Gill, a favorite in Sacramento, as well as the Bay Area.
Eloisa Bravo is an enigmatic and highly personal comedienne. She started her comedy career soon after she discovered she couldn’t have children and a subsequent divorce. She holds nothing back and derives her material from real life, exploding with energy on stage. You’ll notice her immediately for her Venezuelan accent and highly expressive performance; yet it’s the nature and intensity of her material that will stick with you, with its unique
perspective on the issues affecting urban, single women.
Kimberly Rose Wendt began her comedy career on the mean streets of Denver, Colorado. After several dive bar disasters and open mic awkward moments, she made her big debut at Comedy Works, Denver. Following a spin out on the freeway and a realization that snow sucks, Kimberly moved back to the bay to pursue her comedic misanthropy. A style of awkward grace and uneasy ease, Kimberly has built her comedic stylings on years of bad decisions and awkward social interactions. She has performed at The Improv in San Jose, Cobbs, The Punchline and the Purple Onion in SF and many bedrooms up and down the west coast.
People are talking about Caitlin Gill. Most of what they’re saying has to do with how funny she is. Caitlin was a performer at the Outside Lands Festival in 2012, she has been in SF Sketchfest every year since 2007, performed in the Vancouver Global Comedy Fest, was host of the 2009 SF Women’s Comedy Competition and The Ladies Room Open Mic and Showcase. Her writing has been featured in a Believer Magazine project for 826LA. She has worked with some of the best talent in the industry, including Robin Williams, Bobcat Goldthwait, Hannibal Burress, Kyle Kinane, Marc Maron, W. Kamau Bell, Todd Barry, Doug Benson, Arj Barker, Tony Camin, Tig Notaro and too many other names to drop here. 7x7 Magazine featured her as one of the 7 Comics Rocking the Local Scene in July 2011. She was the Tourettes Without Regrets 2011 Slam Champion and a competitor at the 2011 National Poetry Slam. Her comedy style twists her personal experiences into comedy confessions that will leave you red in the face, probably from laughter.
