How to Catch a KarenNaked Empire Bouffon Company

From the company the Huffington Post hails as, “devilishly dangerous theatre,” comes HOW TO CATCH A KAREN, a one-person satirical comedy performed by Sabrina Wenske. This show brings the immortal trickster witch, Baba Yaga, relishing in the dangers and pleasures of outing the closet, “progressive” Karens among us. Charming, savage, and irreverent, Baba Yaga makes the thrill of the hunt palpable as she exorcises hidden Karens from instagram live feeds, kinky play parties, immigrant households, liberal arts college campuses, tech conferences, and even tear-ducts themselves. Join us, and if you’re lucky, Baba Yaga may coax the Karen hiding in you as well.
About the Artist

We have had the privilege of touring North America with multiple award-winning productions winning Best of the Fringe twice in San Francisco, the Talk of the Fringe Award in Vancouver, the Artist’s Choice Award in Edmonton, as well as Official Selections from the Toronto Festival of Clowns, Vancouver’s Dancing on the Edge Festival, Victoria’s UNOFest, Berkeley’s Blast Festival, and Xfest in Edwardsville, Illinois. We are also dedicated to expanding the practice of bouffon.
