Rima Parikh is a St. Louis based comic and Chicago-based unpaid intern. Despite being dubbed “unapproachable” and “downright scary” by the community at large, she is basically a microwaved stick of butter on the inside. She is part of the Chicago based comedy collective, "Simmer Brown". Other credits include writing for Reductress and handing Tim Meadows a luke-warm cup of coffee that one time.
Berkeley, California, in the 1960s, was characterized by a free-wheeling mix of anti-establishment politics, radical life-style experimentation, struggles for racial and gender equality, and a profound respect for traditional cultures able to survive and even flourish outside the commercial "mainstream." Since its founding in 1968, the Freight & Salvage Coffeehouse has been deeply rooted in that aspect of Berkeley's culture that embraced freedom, tolerance, cooperation, and innovation.
