Anna Akana - It Gets Darker

at The Independent (8pm)
After a stalking incident forced Anna into retirement for 6 years, she's back - and armed with a restraining order and a plethora of new stories to tell. Anna Akana is a comedian, actress and writer. As an actress, she can be seen in Marvel's Ant-Man, Comedy Central's Corporate, Netflix's Jupiter's Legacy and the Emmy-nominated Youtube RED series she executive produced and starred in, Youth & Consequences. Her Youtube channel has a following of over 2.8 million subscribers, where she tackles a variety of mental health focused comedy content. As a writer, hopefully she'll someday emerge from development hell (with networks FX, Netflix, and HBOMax) for you to witness her work. Diablo Cody once said, "Anna's a brilliant and poignant writer," so either way, she can now die at peace.

~~~~~~~~

Anna Akana is one of YouTube's premiere content creators, boasting over 1.3 million subscribers and one of the most successful vlog-style shows on the web. Anna also wrote and starred in the series, RILEY REWIND, which garnered over 25 million views across platforms like YouTube, Facebook and Netflix.

Anna continues to show her versatility as an actress, writer, director and comedian and in 2015, starred in and produced her second series, MISS EARTH, based on the short film she directed in 2014. On the comedy front, Anna continues with her long running series at Nerdmelt in Los Angeles and with other sketch and stand-up comedy performances at the famous Upright Citizens Brigade.

Anna recently started development on her first feature I HEART SOCIAL MEDIA with Gidden Media with a scheduled early 2016 start date and currently can be seen in a cameo role in the Marvel Feature ANT MAN.
