The male-dominated state of the stand-up comedy world is less than funny. Especially when marginalized folks become the punchline rather than the comics who deliver them. That’s partly why East Bay queer comedians Irene Tu and Ash Fisher are kicking off a new monthly stand-up series this Thursday solely featuring women and queers at Oakland’s legendary gay bar The White Horse (6551 Telegraph Ave., Oakland). The first lineup will be headlined by Karinda Dobbins, a comedic social commentator who has toured with W. Kamau Bell (or he has toured with her, shall we say), and also features Diana Hong, Luna Malbroux, and Jesús U. BettaWork. Tickets are $10 at the door, but in honor of women making 77 cents on the dollar to men, they are also available online for $7.70 — because tearing down the patriarchy is hilarious.
