Comedian Karinda Dobbins is unapologetically political in her stand-up.

She’s opened for Hari Kondabolu Trevor Noah and toured with W. Kamau Bell. She also co-produces the political comedy show, The Resistance, a few times a month in Oakland. Karinda started performing seven years ago, and she spoke about developing her voice in comedy.

"That's not really what comics wish for — just horrible times so we can make fun of it. But since we're here obviously we have to."

Karinda Dobbins will be performing Friday, December 1, at the New Parkway Theater in Oakland.
