Strawberry Milk is a monthly stand-up comedy series with a devotion to diversity and the laudable goal of a world where white men are not the majority in comedy. Strawberry Milk provides a platform for diverse voices to shake up the traditional comedy scene, and its next show, its eighth, will be Friday, May 24th, 2019 from 8 pm to approximately 9:30 pm at Escondido (146 Bowery, Manhattan, NYC). Strawberry Milk, which highlights both new and established talent, is produced by the all-women team of Olivia Auerbach, Glory, and Kate Robards. 

Auerbach, a TV writer and stand-up comedian recently featured in the Wall Street Journal born in Amsterdam and raised for much of her childhood in Asia, uses her comedy to elevate women’s equality, global issues, and the underbelly of society. Glory, a Dominican Harlem native recently featured in Teen Vogue, uses personal encounters as part of sharing observations of privilege, the cis female experience, and social injustices. Robards, an award-winning writer, performer, and producer who was born and raised on the Gulf Coast of Texas/Louisiana and was recently hailed as “hilarious” by the Washington Post, focuses on narratives related to straddling the wealth gap, combating white privilege, and fighting racism. 
Past artists featured by Strawberry Milk include Mia Jackson, Liza Treygar, Jessica Kirson, Rachel Sennott, Norlex Belma, Nore Davis, Chloe Hillard, Ginny Hogan, Eagle Witt, Sydney Washington, Quan Wiggins, Martin Urbano, Kate Berlant, Orlando Leyba, Naomi Ekperigin, Chinedu Unaka, Randall Otis, Megan Gailey, and many more.

Doors for the show on May 24 open at 7 pm (with a pre-performance DJ), and the show starts at 8. Tickets/Passes are $17 for general seating in advance and are available on Eventbrite
