Let’s be frank: Comedy has a ways to go when it comes to making space for diverse voices and bodies. Across the country, there are strong, vibrant, and hilarious stand up comics striving to break into the conversation. SHADE: An ACTUALLY Diverse Comedy Show is a showcase of stand ups of color and LGBTQI comedians. All are welcome, Shade is mandatory. Hosted and Produced By Colette Gregory and David Perez.
