Live comedy at BPA features Seattle headliner

Stand-Up Night LIVE is back at Bainbridge Performing Arts with 2020 headliner Kortney Shane Williams, host Dan Rosenberg, spotlight guest Bhama Roget and more special surprise guests at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 18.

Williams, a Seattle-based comedian, has opened for Hannibal Buress, David Alan Grier, and Dave Chappelle. He’s been featured at the Boston Comedy Festival, Laughing Skull Comedy Festival, Bumbershoot arts festival, and has appeared on “Laughs TV” on Fox and “The 206” on NBC.

His self-deprecating humor has won him finalist spots in both Comedy Central’s “South Beach Comedy Festival” and NBC’s “Stand-Up Showcase,” and his latest comedy album, “To Whom It Doesn’t Concern,” is available now on Apple Music, Amazon, and Tidal.

He can also be heard on his weekly podcast, “Kortney’s Last Show Podcast,” which is available on Apple Podcast, and his comedy special “Unsubstantiated” is streaming on Dry Bar Comedy.

This event is going on for one-night-only. Tickets, $25 per person, may be purchased online at www.bainbridgeperformingarts.org, by phone at 206-842-8569 or in person at BPA (200 Madison Ave. North).

She has also performed at Second City’s Diversity in Comedy Festival, at Throckmorton Theatre, Comedy Music Night at San Francisco Sketchfest, numerous venues in and around Los Angeles, and locally at the Joketeller’s Union at the Clockout Lounge.

She has performed in regional theaters up and down the West Coast, including Seattle Repertory Theatre, California Shakespeare Theatre, 5th Avenue Theatre, Intiman Theatre, and South Coast Rep.

On television she has appeared on “Leverage,” “The Fugitive,” and “Grey’s Anatomy,” and in the films “Eden and Laggies,” and on the Web series “Cookus Interruptus” and “Wrecked,” for which she won the 2013 Indie Series Award for Best Lead Actress in a Comedy.

Rosenberg has been performing stand-up in clubs, theaters, and festivals for more than two decades, appearing at the prestigious Montreal Just For Laughs Festival, as well as festivals in Las Vegas, New Orleans, and Boston.
