Stand Up Sit Down

Fri., Nov. 21, 8 p.m.
510-849-2568
Stand Up Sit Down
At Stand Up Sit Down, the audience is invited to take a load off while also remaining cognizant of current events. In the part stand-up comedy, part sit-down interview show, local comedians riff on social issues with wit and raw honesty. In the upcoming edition, which takes place at La Peña Cultural Center (3105 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley), comedian hosts Karinda Dobbins and Dhaya Lakshminarayanan will invite featured guest Matt Lieb on stage with his satirical takes on income inequality and gentrification. Then, they will sit down for an interview with Chinaka Hodge, an author, educator, and hip-hop artist whose work focuses on gentrification and police violence. Dobbins and Lakshminarayanan will poke fun at the absurdity of social injustices in America by asking Hodge naïve questions. Hey, sometimes you just have to step back, look around, and have a good, long laugh at the reality of things before you get back to being an activist. $12-$15
