Geneva Rust-Orta's Bio
Geneva was named Second Funniest Jew at the 2015 Jewish Comedian of the Year Competition in London. In 2016, she took a half-hour stand up show, “Messed Up,” to the Edinburgh, Camden, and Great Yorkshire fringe festivals. In 2017 she returned to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with her half-hour show, “Born with a Bush”. Now living in Oakland with a small tribe of mothers, Geneva performs all over the Bay Area. She placed 3rd in the 2018 Rooster T. Feathers comedy competition (tied with Ryan Goodcase). In addition to writing and performing standup, Geneva is a writer for Killing My Lobster and Nice Tan, two SF-based sketch comedy groups. Her moms love all her jokes except the stupid ones. Well, her dumb mom likes them all. That’s why she’s the favorite.
