Karinda Dobbins: Black, Gay, Funny, and a Single Mother!

Comic Karinda Dobbins

Karinda Dobbins is an up and coming comedian who happens to carry too many labels:  black, gay, single mother.  But she's still one of a kind. Host (and one of the first 'out' comics) Marilyn Pittman talks with Karinda about her life in Oakland, her daughter, her stand-up act, and what it was like opening for W. Kamau Bell of FX's 'Totally Biased"  last week at Stagewerx on Valencia Street.
