Out of the Kitchen

When they aren’t busy flipping off the patriarchy or trolling men’s rights activist message boards with eyeroll emojis, feminists can be pretty damn funny — you just might not see many onstage. Luckily, two card-carrying feminists and comedians are trying to change that.

Improv players Alisha Ratan and Meredith Howell have teamed up to launch a bimonthly showcase of underrepresented comedians, performance artists, and musicians, cheekily titled Out of the Kitchen. Catch the event’s sophomore production at 9 p.m. on Friday, October 14, at the Newton, 300 West Camelback Road, featuring stand-up Alley Lightfoot, YouTube channel host McKenzie Stueber, performer Jacqueline Castillo, and musical improviser Carlos Clark, alongside sketches from Overtly Sensitive, Ratan and Howell’s own comedy project. Tickets ($8) and details are available at www.overtlysensitive.com.
