About

Hi!  Thanks for visiting!  Here’s my formal-sounding bio:

Solange Castro is a writer, stand up comic, and playwright who hails from the Berkeley, California.  She attended Berkeley High School and Yale University where she studied English Literature and Playwriting.  As a comic she has performed at the LA Comedy Store, SF Punchline,  Flappers and has opened for long-time friend Maria Bamford.   In 2014 she wrote and produced the play “Changes In The Mating Strategies of White People,” which ran at the Lounge 2 Theatre in Hollywood.  In 2015 she was a finalist for NBC’s Late Night Writer’s Program.  Her play “We Are Experiencing Some Turbulence” saw a staged reading at Sacred Fools theater. You might catch her on Netflix’s “Lady Dynamite” as Maria Bamford’s friend, Solange (what a stretch!).   She has produced hundreds of comedy shows including, “Standup Schtick,” “Seismic!” “The Secret Garden Show,” “Joshi Kai,” “Slay Ride,” “It Got Real…What? Are You Kidding Me?” and “Heat.”  In 2016 she teamed up with young activist Jessica Cabot to begin the podcast “Jessica & Solange Take Down the Patriarchy.”   In 2017 she directed the documentary short “A California For Everyone” about the California Environmental Quality Act’s impact on the California housing crisis.

When she’s not furiously blogging, telling jokes, or stressing, she dances salsa (available to teach privates).  If you’d like to watch her teach her standup comic friends to dance salsa you can catch her web series, “Teaching Comics to Dance Salsa.” She is represented commercially by JLA Talent.
