Comedian Kristina Wong was once a scrappy performance artist with a bright future in reality television. Now, as an actual elected representative (in Koreatown in Los Angeles), she’s part of the political system she used to ridicule. Kristina Wong for Public Office, her one-woman, interactive comedy show mashes up campaign rallies, church revivals, and solo theater to uncover the history of voting, what it means to run for local office, and the impact artists can have on democracy. Originally built to tour alongside the rallies leading up to the 2020 presidential election, against a charming hand-sewn felt set she made herself, this raucous show is now being broadcast live from her home to yours.
A post-show Q&A will follow.
