Join Siren Nation for their bi-annual comedy show featuring some of the funniest ladies in the business!
Hosted by Joanie Quinn
Featuring: Elicia Sanchez, Emma Arnold and Natasha Muse!
Natasha Muse is like the C3P0 of San Francisco comedy: a bunch of small bears once mistook her for a golden god but in reality she’s a bumbling robot (as well as a mom, a transsexual, and a firm agnostic). The SF Weekly once declared her a “Comedian to Watch” in 2014, and in 2016 they upgraded her to an “Artist to Watch.” Natasha features at the SF Punchline and Cobb’s Comedy Club, and has worked with such comedy luminaries as Maria Bamford, Roseanne Barr, Janeane Garofalo, Wyatt Cenac, and God. Natasha’s comedy is so good, it’s not even funny.
Elicia Sanchez has been balancing meager paychecks between comic books and happy hour while performing stand-up since 2010. The Capitol Hill Times has described her comedic style as, “…mad cap tales of social incompetence,” while writer Lindy West (Jezebel) has called her “…a grumpy nugget of delight” and one of the “…funniest people in Seattle.” Elicia has performed at the Bumbershoot Music and Arts Festival, the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Northwest Comedy Fest and is a recurring opening act for comedian Hari Kondabolu (Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell). She co-produces three Seattle comedy shows (The Good Fun Show, Wine Shots: Comedy’s Happiest Hour, The Enematic Cinematic: LIVES!!), hosts a podcast about bad movies titled The Enematic Cinematic, and is the lead singer of Seattle’s only Michael Bolton comedy/cover band, Lightning Bolton. Elicia currently resides in Seattle, WA where when not performing, she splits her time between watching creepy forensic crime shows and dusting her action figures.
Joanie Quinn is a rainbow haired, menopause mom of four kids, who worked on comedy sitcoms in Hollywood before she became a breeder in Oregon. She’s been saving up for her kids therapy, one performance at a time. Joanie regularly produces & performs in Portland’s “Spilt Milk: you’ll laugh til you cry!”, at Harvey’s Comedy Club, and has appeared at Helium Comedy Club and The Legendary Ice House in Pasadena, California. Joanie performed in the “All Jane, No Dick” Comedy Festival, the 2016 Idaho Laugh Fest, and will be in the upcoming SF Mutiny Radio Comedy Fest 2016.
Emma Arnold: Described as “outrageous and hilarious”, Emma Arnold is a comedian, author, and beekeeper. She is a return guest on Doug Loves Movies, and has performed at numerous comedy festivals, including the Limestone, Laugh Your Asheville Off, Pittsburgh, SheDot, and Great American. The other day, she saw an old woman apologize to, and then thank, an automatic door, and realized she was looking at her future. When not touring, Emma lives in Idaho with her family, where she keeps children and bees with varying degrees of success.
