JANINE BRITO is a writer and on-air correspondent on the FXX series Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell, produced by Chris Rock. Janine started doing stand-up comedy in St. Louis and has performed at clubs and theaters throughout the United States and Hong Kong, eventually putting down roots in San Francisco’s comedy scene. She is the winner of the 2009 SF Women’s Comedy Competition and recipient of Rooftop Comedy’s 2010 Silver Nail Award. Praised by 7×7 Magazine as “one of SF’s more daring voices” and one of “the 7 funniest people in town,” she was named the 2011 “Best Comedian with a Message” by the East Bay Express. Along with fellow Bay Area comics W. Kamau Bell and Nato Green, Janine is a member of Laughter Against the Machine, a grassroots comedy tour and forthcoming documentary film. Her recent festival appearances include SF Sketchfest, Bridgetown Comedy Festival, and the Glasgow International Comedy Festival. W. Kamau Bell calls her “a sarcastic, snarky smart bomb of comedy funk straight from the 80’s,” and SF Weekly says she’s “a mean lesbian,” but she’s pretty sure that they mean it in a good way.
