Faith Choyce
Faith Choyce
Faith Choyce is here and queer, and always sincere. She’s the perpetual class clown and smartass with no filter, all grown up. Often described as smart and quirky, the Los Angeles-born comedian has penned popular pieces for Reductress and was recently named one of the “Funniest Comedians On Twitter” by Laugh Button Magazine. Faith was invited to participate in the prestigious San Francisco International Comedy Competition, as well as the 2015-2017 Sketchfest San Francisco Comedy Festival. She’s shared the stage with the likes of Maria Bamford and Kyle Kinane. Catch Faith live and you’ll see that she’s as at home weaving confessional tales with one-liners as she is charming and disarming the audience with improv and poignant observational humor.
