When you are raised by a paranoid schizophrenic nanny, a life spent as a stand-up comic is probably the most socially acceptable possible outcome -- just ask Janine Brito. She survived her nanny, and many, many other adventures, to become one of today's most original performers. Mentored by W. Kamau Bell, who called her "a sarcastic, snarky smart bomb," Brito later was a writer on Bell's cult hit FX series, Totally Biased. Already beloved in the alternative comedy scene for her sartorial flare and refreshing perspective, Brito has been called one of "the 7 funniest people in town" by 7x7 magazine and "a mean lesbian" by SF Weekly -- though she's pretty sure they mean it in a good way. Now the Bay Area-based Brito headlines the Drafthouse Comedy Theater.
