ONLINE PRE-SALES SOLD OUT / LIMITED DOOR TICKETS AVAILABLE 10 MINUTES BEFORE SHOW TIME (get here early to get on the waitlist!)

Written/directed by Ryan Darbonne and Carina Hinojosa, EVERYTHING YOU WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT WHITE SUPREMACY* (*but were too afraid to ask), is a satirical sketch revue exploring white supremacy's grip on America through comedy. The show isn't designed to solve racism (or offer any REAL answers) but rather highlight the absurdity, and horror, of it all.  Starring: Mary Vo, Bre Bietz, Brandon Martin, Irielle Wesley, Xaria Coleman, Kenah Benefield, Ivy Le, Denise Martinez-Rivas, Niru Kumar.

 

 

 

 

 Pavar Snipe is an Emmy nominated comedian, writer, actress and disability advocate. She's a producer/host for ABC's "Localish", the voice of Angela Baker on the DreamWorks series “Dragons: The Nine Realms”, and was writer/actress on ABC's “When Nature Calls with Helen Mirren”. Diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis as a child, Pavar channels her experience into her comedy. Pavar is a proud member of WOCA (Women of Color Anonymous), a BIPOC LA based sketch team also appearing in this year's ATXSF. She's on the advisory board of the New York ReelAbilities Film Festival. This April, she co-produced and co-directed the "ReelAbilities Live!" comedy show to a nearly sold out crowd.  In her latest gig, Pavar is a college professor, teaching the course “Funny Ha Ha: The Art of Comedy” at The New School in NYC. Pavar is excited to debut "Code Switch" at the Austin Sketch Fest. Join her as she guides the audience through the multiverse in her head.
