From “The Late Show with David Letterman” to Sirius Satellite Radio and Comedy Central, Karen Rontowski’s show is fast-paced, clean, optimistic humor. With a stand up career that spans over 20 years she has performed in 45 of the United States and over 13 countries including New Jersey.
Her parents still live in her hometown of Pittsfield, Massachusetts which is why she resides in Van Nuys, CA where she fits in perfectly with her “New Age” lifestyle and attitude, “Don’t worry. It’s all good,” or as her therapist describes it, “complete denial.”
Her quirky, original thought patterns always brings an interesting twist that lets you see a mind full of confident confusion. She believes in things like karma so when a 2-year old sat in front of her on a plane she kicked his seat the whole way. She is even thinking of getting some plastic surgery. Karen wants to get her eyes done by having them both put on one side of her head and then continually asking people if her hair looks alright. “Is my part straight?”
Karen has opened for such show biz legends as Bob Hope, Ray Charles, David Brenner and the Monkees which was a big thrill for her since she feels there is no time like the present to be living in the past. She is now featured in the new line of greeting cards called “Frank and Funny” that you can find in Target stores everywhere and is the comedy writer for “Haunted Magazine”.
A television favorite, you may have seen this hilarious woman on The Late Show with David Letterman, Comedy Central, Live at Gotham, Comics Unleashed and Comedy.com. A regular on the Bob and Tom Radio Show and a featured performer on their CD, Karen keeps listeners laughing not only with her stand up, but also when she talks about her other careers as a Tarot reader, Reiki Master and Paranormal Investigator. She loves the supernatural and believes she will someday have a Near Death Experience because she never finishes anything.
“Sometimes a ghost will just do the same thing over and over in life. That’s why I want to move into a house that is haunted by a maid.”
