DACP presenting Nina G’s “An Evening of Comedy” on October 18th

The Disability Art and Culture Project (DACP) invites everyone to attend “An Evening of Comedy” featuring Nina G on October 18 at 7:30 p.m. DACP is bringing Nina G, The San Francisco Bay Area's favorite female stuttering stand up comedian (granted she is the only one) to perform at the Curious Comedy Theater, 5225 N.E. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.

Nina G is America’s only female stuttering stand up comedian and an author, speaker, and educator. She has made countless audiences laugh while educating them about disability issues and equality. Nina breaks down stigma, raises awareness and helps people reach their potential as allies to the Disability community. Nina works solo as a public speaker and educator and also tours with the comedy troupes The Comedians with Disabilities Act and Feminist Tendencies (an all-female comedy troupe aimed to empower diverse young women).

This event will support the second biennial Portland ReelAbilities Disability Film Festival. Founded in 2007, ReelAbilities is dedicated to sharing the stories, lives and art of people with disabilities. It consists of award-winning films of the highest cinematic and artistic quality and is hosted in cities across the country. DACP is excited to bring these films back to Portland in the spring of 2018. Learn more about Nina on her website, http://www.ninagcomedian.com.

More information, including a link for tickets, is available on DACP’s website.
