AUDRA SISAK (she/her/they), stage name Polite Kitty, is a comedic storyteller by nature. They tell about their life experiences as an autistic, disabled super-parent with epilepsy, raising kids, hyper fixations, and dysfunctional family fun. A brilliant style of entertainment that leaves an audience participating and laughing! They are the director and found of South Sound Improv; work full time as a performer, host, comedian, storyteller, and actor. They have performed with the annual Turnpike Comedy Festival, LA Comedy Connection Improv, Story Collider, 7 Stories, Open Mic Collective PNW, Geeky Comedy Seattle, Club Comedy Seattle, and more!
When Polite Kitty is not on stage, they enjoy time with family and their fur babies (8 dogs and 7 cats). They also love gardening, reading, music, dancing, binging favorite TV shows on repeat, comedy, improv, 1950’s look, frogs, mermaids, and making others feel good about themselves. Most relatable animal is a Manul Cat. They have two sons, 10 and 19 years old, and lives in a home with their parents as a community. They were probably a hippie in another life.
