Liliana Velasquez M. has crossed borders all her life. Raised in Miami Medellin and New Jersey there is no role she cannot play and her comedy reflects this extravagant mix in her Latina-tude, Catholic guilt and American dreaming. As an adult, Liliana recklessly explored NYC, slipping in and out of different art forms, costumes, and jobs. She has so many outrageous stories to tell, it would horrify her proud parents, Only now do they admire her comedic outlook on so many mistakes. Always hungry for new challenges, Liliana soon found other platforms for the performance that is her life: Berlin Neukölln. She is proud to be queer and not perfect and enjoys waking up in the afternoons.
As if that isn’t enough, she is also leading lady at Freudian Slip Club, producing hundreds of shows in Germany every year.
Duckie L’Orange is a Berlin based performance artist with a twist.
She does weird and wacky interactive performances for kids, and equally wacky but significantly dirtier shows for adults. She’s been all around town like a hipster on a vintage bicycle – from performing at the Sydney Opera House, barking in a steam punk carnival with Antigua i Barbuda at Sydney Festival, touring Germany with the Puppetry Slam Berlin to creating shows in the jungles of Kalimantan and Timor Leste.
Kate Cheka – Soul of an African, voice of an old British man. Kate Cheka is a (usually) Berlin-based, British comedian who tackles the tough topics, like racism and also vaginal discharge. Came third in the inaugural Berlin New Stand-up Awards 2019 and participated in the BBC Radio 4 New Comedy Award. Kate has done comedy in as far-flung places as Nepal – for Kathmandu’s first ever international comedy festival – as well as India, Sweden and the UK. Back in Germany, she produces two shows, Shows Before Bros – Berlin’s first and only women’s* open mic and WOKE PANTIES a women of colour comedy showcase. Not bad considering she got into comedy to spite someone who once said ‘I thought you were more fun’. Find her on Instagram @katecheka
