A queer/trans/non-binary comedian and writer, El Sanchez has been performing all over the country (and once in Canada) since 2010. Their conversationally cynical, yet upbeat comedic style weaves together a unique mix of embarrassing personal stories, nerdy obsessions, social politics and possible overshares, making light of their own instances of social incompetence while also skewering oppressive social norms. They have been called "fearless" by City Arts Magazine, "a grumpy nugget of delight," by writer/activist Lindy West (Shrill: Notes From a Loud Woman) and "a brilliant new voice everyone should know," by comedian Hari Kondabolu (The Problem with Apu). Grammy Award winning singer/song-writer Kimya Dawson (The Moldy Peaches, Juno) has cited Sanchez as her 'favorite underground Northwest comedian' while W. Kamau Bell, Emmy Award winning comedian and host of CNN's United Shades of America, once said, "El Sanchez is the truth."

Host: Comedy Nest producer Clara Pluton!

Show begins at 9pm, $15 in advance or $20 at the door, 21+.
