Janine Brito started doing standup comedy in St. Louis and has performed at clubs and theaters throughout the U.S. and Hong Kong. A rising star on the San Francisco scene, she is a regular at the Punch Line, winner of the 2009 SF Women's Comedy Competition, and recipient of Rooftop Comedy's 2010 Silver Nail Award. Praised by 7x7 Magazine as "one of SF's more daring voices" and one of "the 7 funniest people in town," she was just named the 2011 “Best Comedian with a Message” by the East Bay Express. Along with fellow bay area comics W. Kamau Bell and Nato Green, Janine is part of Laughter Against the Machine, a grassroots comedy tour visiting America's most volatile political hotspots. A sarcastic, snarky smart bomb of comedy funk straight from the '80s, Janine has been featured in the San Francisco Chronicle, and The SF Weekly called her “a mean lesbian.” But she’s pretty sure that they meant it in a good way. To learn more, visit janinebrito.com.
