Her sharp wit and whimsical ability to see what’s wrong with the world has made her a sought after and outstanding comic. She was featured at the 2017 Brew HaHa Comedy Festival in Cincinnati, OH and she’s been featured on Nick mom’s website.

Headliner Ken Evans brings a boy-next-door persona to the stage has an observational style of comedy that relates to every audience member. His energy is electric and his act is very visual, bringing his comedy to life with his command of the stage. The Orlando Sentinel said “Ken Evans’ biting wit is like viewing life through broken glass…” Evans has appeared on NBC’s “Ed”, Caroline’s Comedy Hour, SHOWTIME, “Law & Order,” and NBC’s “Last Comic Standing.” He’s been a studio guest of the Bob and Tom Show and the Bob and Sheri national radio show.
