Theater: Rachel Dratch and Tina Fey’s sketches have one foot in the absurd and another in the socially conscious. By Tim Townsend
A blast from the past: an old-school look at the genius of Fey and Dratch, before everyone knew who they were.
Kelly Anneken and Isa Hopkins, founders of Oakland sketch comedy troupe Femikaze, make advocating for equal representation — of women, queers, people of color, and people of all body types in comedy — well, a hilariously good time. When they’re not relaying true stories about slipping in human feces on BART, retelling fairytales with a queer twist, or lovingly ripping on NPR, Hopkins and Anneken are running the online humor journal Hobo Pancakes and hosting readings of their gender-bending screenplay about FBI agents scouting out a white supremacist cult in rural Idaho.
Femikaze co-founders Kelly and Isa, makin’ waves in the East Bay Express!
Thanks for the love, East Bay!
