Femikaze in 100 words:
As the East Bay’s premiere all-female comedy team, Femikaze brings the finest in pro-feminist, pro-funny sketch comedy. Founded in 2011 by Kelly Anneken and Isa Hopkins, Femikaze strives to create opportunities in comedy for ladies of all shapes, sizes, ethnicities and orientations. The group sold out their first three independent productions at Berkeley’s Subterranean Arthouse in their 2011-2012 season. In addition to performing and writing their own material, Femikaze is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization. They are developing a curriculum to cultivate comedic voices in young women ages 12-19 with a special focus on those in low-income areas.
