A stand up comic, and was a writer and on-air correspondent on the FX series, Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell, produced by Chris Rock. She’s also half Cuban, half Icelandic, and aaaall lesbian.
Janine started doing standup comedy in St. Louis and has performed at clubs and theaters throughout the US and Hong Kong. She is the winner of the 2009 SF Women’s Comedy Competition, and recipient of Rooftop Comedy’s 2010 Silver Nail Award. Praised by 7×7 Magazine as “one of SF’s more daring voices” and one of “the 7 funniest people in town,” she was named the 2011 “Best Comedian with a Message” by the East Bay Express.
Her recent festival appearances include SF Sketchfest, the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, the Glasgow International Comedy Festival, SXSW, Hell Yes Fest, and the Moontower Comedy Festival.
The SF Weekly says she’s “a mean lesbian,” but she’s pretty sure that they mean it in a good way.
