Janine Brito

JANINE BRITO started doing standup comedy in St. Louis and has performed at clubs and theaters throughout the US 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, recipient of Rooftop Comedy's 2010 Silver Nail Award, and was just named the 2011 “Best Comedian with a Message” by the East Bay Express. Praised by 7x7 Magazine as "one of SF's more daring voices" and one of "the 7 funniest people in town," this fall she'll head out on the road with fellow bay area comics, W. Kamau Bell and Nato Green, for their grassroots Laughter Against the Machine comedy tour to America's most volatile political hotspots. A sarcastic, snarky smart bomb of comedy funk straight from the 80's, 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. www.janinebrito.com "Janine Brito, very funny lesbian! Can I say that?" Marc Maron, WTFpod Ep 207 "...Janine Brito, the tart-tongued Bay Area comic whose barbs are as sharp as her signature ensemble of jeans, vest and tie." - Santa Cruz Weekly
