YAS KWEEN is a monthly night of comedy that creates a space for those who identify as Women of Colour/Ethnicity (WOC) to share their voices, develop their craft, and connect with each other. Each month is a different mix of stand-up, sketch, improv, musical, and storytelling performances. 

Please note that in some cases, YAS KWEEN will include performers who are not WOC, because they are the partners/troupe members that our WOC have committed to working with to develop their craft. We allow space for performers from the wide spectrum of the skin tone rainbow who self-identify as women of colour/ethnicity. These talents often may not feel their voices represented in the mainstream/comedy world and we wanna give them that opportunity to rep it up. 

YAS KWEEN strives to be a safe, inclusive space for our performers and audience members. Good vibes encouraged.
