Comedians at Bumbershoot

Of all the comics I saw at bumbershoot, Kate Berlant was my favorite. Her show was so utterly confusing and unique. She would threaten us that if we weren’t up for staying for the whole three hours we should just get up and leave right now! I also loved that she steals makeup as a radical feminist act.

Khadija Hassan was quite funny too! There were so many women and people of color at the shows, I really appreciated that.

Sadiqua Iman

Sadiqua is a sex therapist, bulesque dancer performance artist I saw at Bumbershoot! Her show was compelling, about arousal and gender fluidity, with the occasional audience interaction. It was amazing hearing her sing the children’s songs she learned on the playground growing up in Seattle. They were highly sexualized. At the beginning of her show she was wearing a goatee, and by the end she had shed her clothes. She is on twitter!
