Brouhaha: QTPOC Comedy Extravaganza 

At Oakland Metro Operahouse.

Last year, Oakland’s Brouhaha became the first all trans woman of color comedy show in the country, and it was a huge hit. It started with comedians and activists Lexi Adsit and Luna Merbruja, who gathered together a group of women who had mostly never performed on stage before and coached them through a comedy boot camp that translated their experiences into hilarious stand-up routines. When it premiered last summer, all the shows completely sold out. On May 20, Brouhaha is back as the opening night event for the National Queer Arts Festival. And this time, they have a headliner: Celebrated trans activist CeCe McDonald will be taking the stage to lay down some social justice comedy. Plus, Brouhaha’s TWOC storytelling crew will be joining its comics for a “comedy mega-show” that will also feature spoken word. The show will be held at the Oakland Metro Opera House (522 2nd St., Oakland) at both 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. As expected, the early show is already sold out, but as of publishing there were still tickets available to the late show. That one will likely be more fun, anyway.
