Bio

“Kate Willett is a woman on the rise. Willett achieves a perfect blend of smart and filthy when she takes the stage.”  –SF Weekly

“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.” –Hoodline.com

“Cho also noted that she’s been at this for long enough now to have her own “daughters in comedy,” chief among them Amy Schumer. Another of her daughters, Kate Willett, opened the show with a short set. Sending up the hippy mores of San Francisco and men who watch too much porn, Willett was especially brilliant in her final bit about having a pregnancy scare at Burning Man.”  –Exclaim.ca (review of Just for Laughs Comedy Festival, Montreal 2015)

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

“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.” — Jewish Journal of the Greater Los Angeles Area

“Taut, spry, dashing, deadpan.” –courtingcomedy.com
