**Special Student Dialogue with the Artist – Friday, Nov 15th @ 3pm**

Irene Tu is a queer Asian American millennial comedian (so her parents are super proud of her). In 2017, the San Francisco Chronicle singled her out as an “artist on the brink of fame,” on the heels of being named one of the “Bay Area’s 11 Best Stand Up Comedians” (SFist) and one of 20 “Women to Watch” (KQED). She has performed at numerous festivals including SF Sketchfest, Comedy Central’s Clusterfest, RIOT LA, Bridgetown Comedy Festival, and Outside Lands. Irene has opened for comedians such as Patton Oswalt, W. Kamau Bell, Brian Posehn, Anthony Jeselnik, Gary Gulman, Judah Friedlander, Hari Kondabolu, and Aparna Nancherla. You can see her on season 2 of “Take My Wife” and on VICELAND’s “Funny How?”

“She is confident onstage and offstage. Her caring demeanor belies a dark side that I can relate to.” – W. Kamau Bell

“She excels at pleasant—almost parental—condescension and the confident undercut” – Portland Mercury
