Comedians Karen Rontowski and Adam Stone join host and producer Kat Simmons for a triple-header of laughs at Comedy Night Live at the Carson Valley Inn on Friday evening, August 22.
Karen Rontowski's clean observation comedy makes her perfect for any venue. She is a "Baby Boomer Hippie" who believes there is no time like the present to be living in the past. She is a regular on the number one morning radio show in the country, "Bob and Tom" and can be seen on Comedy Central's "Live at Gotham" and "Comics Unleashed with Byron Allen." She recently made her acting debut playing the lead role of Sue Burrow in the upcoming movie "Return To Sender." Karen received a standing ovation when she performed at the Minden Rotary Comedy Tribute to Administrative Professionals in 2002.
Adam Stone's perspectives, witticism, and sometimes edgy impressions will draw you into his world of self-esteem deficiencies, idiosyncrasies, under achievement and mistaken identity. He was a semi finalist in two major Sacramento and Reno competitions and a finalist in the "Search for Stars" comedy competition.
The evening will open with host and producer Kat Simmons whose credits include many major US comedy clubs. Kat has made TV appearances on The Comedy Channel, Comedy Nite, Candid Camera and more. She has performed with such entertainment notables as Tim Allen, Kenny Rogers and, most recently, Kevin Nealon from Saturday Night Live. Kat also teaches a comedy class at the CVI on occasion and has a unique approach to corporate training presentations with an ultimate comedy touch!
