Vanessa Lee Segale Khaleel was raised in the Bay Area and loves Mexican food. She literally stumbled upon solo perfomance when she was feeling a slight buzz at a Dave Chapelle show and went up to comedian W. Kamau Bell while he was chowing down on a Ceasar salad. Since becoming a member of Bell's Solo Performance Workshop, (now Martha Rynberg's SPW) she has performed at venues all over the Bay Area, including The Shelton Theater, Menlo College, CounterPULSE and at the Annual SF Theatre Festival. Her solo pieces combine the visceral, take no prisoners humor of comedy clubs, combined with the intimacy of theater. She likes the color pink, fine red wine, all paraben free face lotions, and thinks her kids have better dance moves than yours.

Kicks to the Vagina

7:00p @ Stagewerx | 446 Valencia St., San Francisco
One dark night back in 2016, Vanessa realized she wouldn’t be popping bottles to celebrate the first female president, and ever since it’s been one kick in the vagina after another. Eventually, the patriarchy got one win too many, and Vanessa decided she’d been kicked in the vagina for the last time. So, instead of stockpiling Plan B, dressing her daughters in bonnets and bows, and drowning in wine and tears, she’s going to woman-up, get a female cup, and burn all the bonnets. And wine—there’s still wine.
