About the performers:

Valerie (she/they) takes their day-job as a scientist very seriously, except when they're doing science comedy, which is most of the time. Her biggest comedy achievement is performing at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2018. After moving to Seattle in that same year, she founded Geeky Comedy Seattle,” which she considers to be her second greatest achievement. You can now find Valerie performing, singing, and producing geeky content wherever they'll let her. Follow her on instagram and twitter: @valerie_benti


Polite Kitty is a comedic storyteller by nature. They tell about their life experiences as an autistic, disabled superparent with epilepsy, raising kids, hyper fixations, and dysfunctional family fun. A brilliant style of entertainment that leaves an audience participating and laughing! They work full time as a performer, producer, comedian, and ghost hunt tour guide for Spooked in Seattle. They have performed with the annual Turnpike Comedy Festival, LA Comedy Connection Improv, Story Collider, Geeky Comedy Seattle, Club Comedy Seattle, Jody Oliver Show, Bombing Run, and more! They are the founder and director of South Sound Improv, which currently has a virtual team that is finishing up it’s first season and an in person which is having its next performance on June 9th.

When Polite Kitty is not on stage, they enjoy time with family and their fur babies (8 dogs and 7 cats). They also love gardening, reading, music, dancing, binging favorite TV shows on repeat, comedy, improv, 1950’s look, frogs, mermaids, and making others feel good about themselves. Most relatable animal is a Manul Cat. They have two sons, 10 and 19 years old, and lives in a home with their parents as a community. They spend a good amount of time listening to Batala’s ASMR and now catching up on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
