SheDot Festival ("Toronto's Festival of Funny Women") is in its fourth year, and has grown from essentially a local festival in its first year to one featuring performers from all across Canada and the United States. SheDot co-producer Karen O'Keefe (who now runs the festival alongside founder Martha O'Neill) has been involved since its inception, and has also been performing stand-up for over 10 years along with other festival appearances and a writing stint on This Hour Has 22 Minutes. Paul Little chatted with O'Keefe at a cafe across the street from SheDot's home base for the weekend, Comedy Bar, mere hours before this year's festival began. They spoke about the chaos of co-producing a festival, SheDots beginnings, future plans for the festival, some of the shows to check out if you're in Toronto this weekend (the festival runs through Sunday, May 7), and her own writing and acting aspirations.
