Featuring SNL's Sasheer Zamata and Jamie Lee! Join us for a special International Women’s Day comedy event—leading performers from the worlds of music and comedy will come together to celebrate women in the arts through song and laughter. After a sold out performance in 2018, RIOT! has become a national platform for female artists to embrace creative risk and emphasize their perspective in our rapidly evolving culture.

Jamie Lee is a standup comedian and actress whom Elle Magazine recently named as one of the top comedians to watch.
