“The Femmes of Color Comedy Club is the freshest & most important new outfit in the British comedy landscape”
Deborah Frances-White of The Guilty Feminist

The FOC IT UP! Comedy Club, founded by American comic Kemah Bob, unapologetically celebrates and centres the perspectives of comedians of colour that are not cis-men!

Join Kemah and her incredibly hilarious comrades in comedy for a night the Evening Standard calls “a riot of positivity and inclusivity”.

Confirmed line-up hosted by Kemah: Silly, sexy, savage stand-up from Taskmaster titan Sophie Duker, the unapologetic and sharp witted Evelyn Mok, comedy assassin Ninia Benjamin, winner of Best Newcomer at the 2022 Edinburgh Comedy Awards Lara Ricote, and your favourite hilarious Arab Essex girl Esther Manito.

Since 2018 FOC IT UP! has brought its revolutionary energy to sold out shows in London, the Edinburgh Fringe, Latitude and Southbank Festival. Hot off recording the first season of the FOC IT UP! Podcast, the Femmes of Colour Comedy club is bringing some much needed ha-ha-holiday cheer to Shoreditch Town Hall.

White audience members are encouraged to check their privilege at the door!

Kemah (she/they) is a comedian, presenter, writer, actor, drag artist and producer. In addition to being featured on Dave, ITV, Channel 4, Comedy Central and the BBC, she has supported Hannah Gadsby, Nish Kumar, Desiree Burch and The Guilty Feminist on tour

Please note: This show will be recorded for the FOC IT UP! Podcast
