Calvin Cato is headlining a comedy show starring John Tyler and Tim Duffy presented by The River Comics at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 7 at Craft Brew Underground in Auburn.
Cato got his start in comedy with the Wesleyan University comedy troupe Punchline, then moved his unique humor to New York in 2006. He has performed across the United States and Canada. In 2017, Cato was named one of Time Out New York’s Queer Comics of Color to Watch. His television appearances include The Game Show Network, Oxygen’s “My Crazy Love”, National Geographic’s “Brain Games”, and an unaired pilot for Vice Media called “Emergency Black Meeting”. Her comedy has been featured at numerous festivals, including San Francisco Sketchfest, Austin’s Out of Bounds Comedy Festival, Brooklyn Pride, Gotham Storytelling Festival, FlameCon, and the Women in Comedy Festival. Plus, you may have heard him overshared on popular podcasts such as “Keith and The Girl”, “The Beige Philip Show”, “RISK!”, “Las Culturistas”, “Tinder Tales” or the video game-themed podcast he co-produced as the “Playable Characters Podcast” (featured in AV Club and Splitsider). Most recently it was featured in “Kweendom”, an anthology of essays by queer comedians and artists published in early 2021.
