Kat Evasco is a writer, stand up comic, and performing artist living and working in San Francisco. Kat co-created and co-produced the BAKLA SHOW I & II (2007, 2010), highlighting experiences of the queer Filipino community. She competed in the 2010 San Francisco International Comedy Competition and has performed at venues including the Haha Cafe, San Jose Improv, the Purple Onion, Napa Valley Opera House, and the Logan Center for the Arts. Drawing on her experience as a stand up comic and comedic actress, Evasco recently premiered her autobiographical one-woman show, Mommy Queerest. This new work chronicles the coming-out process of a lesbian daughter and a closeted lesbian mother, illustrating how the reclaiming of their sexuality challenges and strengthens their relationship. Mounted as a solo performance, Mommy Queerest aims to celebrate sexuality, eradicate homophobia and break cycles of abuse. Co-presented by Guerrilla Rep and DIVAfest, Mommy Queerest is currently running at The EXIT Theater in San Francisco until March 29, 2014.
