An Evening of Comedy with Karen Williams

A Special Evening of Comedy with Karen Williams and live music opener with Meg Gehman and The Influence

Karen was featured in the ImageOut Audience Award Winning Documenntary Laughing Matters.

Curve Magazine calls Karen Williams "...a laugh riot!" The Sydney Morning Herald proclaims that Karen Williams is "ferociously funny, with perfect pace, timing and structure." Karen is star of "I Need A Snack!" Filmed live to a sold-out audience at Hollywood's Knitting Factory, it is shown regularly on LOGO TV. Karen is a comic master, gifted actor, talented writer, and inspirational lecturer, whose HaHA Institute attracts clients from the public and private sectors. Armed with her "healing with humor" philosophy, Karen is a modern-day alchemist, whose audiences revel in her cathartic laughter, and whose peers consider her a comic's comic!

Opening the evening at 7:00pm in the Carlson Lounge will be singer/songwriter Meg Gehman and her band The Influence.

"There is something comfortingly familiar about singer-songwriter Meg Gehman's voice - smooth yet sultry, clear yet spunky. Gehman is an amalgam of some of music's greatest and most enduring spirits, from Van Morrison to k.d. lang and Bonnie Raitt, with an accessible sound and plenty of tasty vocal hooks. Based in Rochester, Gehman also cites soul legends such as Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder as influences; on her latest album, "Leap," there are generous helpings of R&B and soul." - Daniel J. Kushner / CITY Newspaper

Meg has delighted audiences for years as the leader of Meg and The Clams, This Other Life, and now Meg Gehman & The Influence.
