Sonita / Germany, Iran, Switzerland (Director: Rokhsareh Ghaem Maghami) — If 18-year-old Sonita had a say, Michael Jackson and Rihanna would be her parents and she’d be a rapper who tells the story of Afghan women and their fate as child brides.

Featuring headliners Tracy Smith & Kjell Bjorgen for a night of good, comedic fun.
With a personality just sweet enough to offset the bitterness of the truth, Tracy dishes out bellies full of laughter big enough to choke on. Tracy is a well- respected voice in stand up, with a list of international television credits which include her own hour-long special on Canada’s Comedy Network, as well as critically acclaimed half hour special for Comedy Central. She has toured with the Bob and Tom Radio Show Allstars, and has been a writer and consultant for the one and only Roseanne Barr. She has been touring for the better part of two decades, and she knows her way into an audience’s hearts and minds. Variety Magazine called Tracy “One of the Top Ten Comics to Watch”.
Bjorgen has performed at the Chicago Comedy Festival, the Montreal Comedy Festival and the Aspen Comedy Festival. He opened for Lewis Black on the Nothing’s Sacred Tour. He has been featured on NBC’s Late Friday and Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham.
