Educational Alliance to Host #NastyWomen Comedy Show Featuring an Entirely Trans and Non-binary Line-Up at 14th Street Y


New York, NY – Educational Alliance will host the #NastyWomen Production on Monday, April 15th at 7:30pm at the 14th Street Y, featuring the first line-up comprised entirely of trans and non-binary comedians. In the wake of the 2016 presidential election, #NastyWomen was conceived as a night dedicated to female resistance comedians that utilize comedy as both a uniting tool and a resistance tool. January 18th, 2018 – days ahead of the Women’s March – marked the inaugural event and the series continues to generate a forum that empowers all through laughter, camaraderie, and activism. In light of the explosive #MeToo and Time's Up movements and in recognition that feminism must be intersectional, on April 15, 2019 at 7:30pm, #NastyWomen+ will feature underrepresented genders and empower those marginalized within the spectrum of she and they identity.

The emcee, Amanda Duarte, creator and host of Dead Darlings, will lead a powerhouse group of comedians to bring laughter during a time when we need it most.


General Admission Tickets are $30. Press is encouraged to RSVP to
