The S.H.I.T. Show
The SHiT Show delivers the magic of sketch comedy via a sucker punch to the face. Come along for the ride, nerds!
The Countess Katya Smirnoff-Skyy has enthralled Bay area audiences for years with her unique blend of opera pop and booze. With a career spanning …a very, very long time…..Katya claims to have invented Popera, romanced William Shatner, and lived next to John Lennon at the Dakota during her stint in New York City during the 1970’s. Once Eastern Europe’s greatest Mezzo-Soprano…understudy, the Countess now spends her days beautifying the masses at Macy’s Department store, as everyone’s favorite Chanel counter lady. She spends her evenings crooning and drinking her away through the finer theaters, bars and bath houses of America.
Leslie Small is Bay Area native comedian and an absolutely wonderful person, especially if you ask her Mom. She practices the time honored tradition of comedy with one goal in mind: to be recruited by a gang of assassins. Since waiting for this she has performed in the NY She-Devil comedy competition, the Savage Henry comedy festival, the SF International comedy competition and in SF Sketchfest. She’s the coolest person you haven’t met yet.
Maggie Motorboat is Burlesque dancer and entertainer currently performing with the Hubba Hubba Revue and the Fishnet Follies Classic Burlesque Revue.
