“With a combination of affectionate satire of the Bay Area lifestyle, unflinchingly honest but wildly absurd personal stories, and lucid feminist/queer commentary, Kate Willett has begun to emerge as one of the most unique voices in San Francisco comedy.” –

“As my opener, she buried me! Fortunately we were performing in a mortuary.” — Kyle Kinane

“One of the strongest female figures in Bay Area Comedy” –Dana Sitar, SF Weekly

“She’s a great actress within the joke, which is usually the left out secret ingredient in explicating dark humor…Kate Willett is beyond a doubt top-notch in comedy writing, execution and overall presentation.” — Steven Alan Green, Jewish Journal of the Greater Los Angeles Area

“Taut, spry, dashing, deadpan.” –

San Francisco magazine describes Kate Willett as “a comedian you should know about,” so here’s the info: She’s a regular opener for Margaret Cho who she’s toured with throughout the United States and Canada. Her work was recently featured on the Risk! podcast with Kevin Allison. At home in San Francisco, she’s one of the most sought after comedians in town, has opened for comedians like Kyle Kinane, Anthony Jeselnik and Jackie Kashian, and produces four of the best alternative comedy shows in the city including “The Mission Position” at Lost Weekend Video which calls “the next great tradition in San Francisco Comedy.” Kate’s comedy has earned her “regular” status at every comedy club in the Bay Area including The Punchline, Cobb’s, The Improv, Rooster T Feathers as well as a spot in San Francisco Sketchfest for the past three years in a row. She’s performed internationally in India, Ireland, and the UK. Kate is a favorite among audience members, flannel clad skateboarders, and all of her twenty-three roommates.
