City Winery Atlanta is excited to host the absolutely incredible Dr. Kiana Dancie, a powerhouse comedian, transformational speaker, author, coach and entrepreneur for her one-woman show, right here in Atlanta.
You might know Dr. Kiana Dancie from her role in BET & SHOWTIME feature, ‘One Crazy Christmas,’ Netflix’s ‘SEXTUPLETS,’ the hit TV ONE show ‘Whose Got Jokes?’ with Bill Bellamy, or Bounce TV’s second season of ‘Off the Chain.’
But that’s not all you should know about Dr. Kiana Dancie. Dancie is also notable for her dedication to activism. Last year, Kiana was the recipient of The President’s Lifetime Achievement Award from the Biden Administration for her consistent activism and humanitarian efforts, and in 2023 she was awarded an Honorary Doctorate in Humanitarianism from Global International Alliance.
She also recently published a book, which is available on Amazon and at Barns and Noble. Her book is titled, Bye Bags Bags – Laughing To Lighten The Load, and discusses “healing yourself whole through laughter.”
Baggage Claim ATL
When: November 4th @ 8PM
Where: City Winery Atlanta
650 North Avenue NE, Ponce City Market, Atlanta, GA 30308
‘Baggage Claim ATL’ is a moving show, but it’s so much more than that. Dancie bares her soul to her audiences, telling the story of how she has grown and learned to love herself and laugh through the pain of childhood trauma. Dancie candidly tells her story of childhood trauma, and more importantly, “she teaches others to do the same through laugh therapy and candid conversations designed to help attendees start their healing process.”
The show is funny. It’s transparent. It’s raw, and it will inspire you to overcome.
You can picture it as a comedic, dramatic standup act filled with laughter, tears, and motivation to find happiness, even when things seem pretty bleak. Oh, and to make sure you have no baggage.
