Hailing from the rough streets of Des Moines, Iowa, Kat Diaz is a Chicago-based comic who performs her twist on observational comedy all around the Midwest, including Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa.
She has also improvised since high school, including graduating from Second City Conservatory and acting in independent TV & movies since college.
Kat’s humor can be described as a dry piece of toast buttered with wordplay and served with physical act outs that make you question “CAN all Latinas dance?”
