Lesbian Comedian Karen Williams on SistersTalk Radio

Tonight on SistersTalk Radio, we interviewed lesbian comedian Karen Williams.

As a single lesbian mom living in Berkeley in the 1980s, Karen Williams started doing stand-up comedy “because it was something I could do that didn’t cost anything.” Known for her quick repartee, insightful commentary and audience rapport, Williams is a comic craftmaster, a gifted actor, a multitalented writer, and an inspirational lecturer. Armed with her “heal with humor” philosophy, she gives humor workshops specifically designed to build self-awareness and self-confidence, and to encourage tolerance and respect for the dignity of human life.

Hear Karen discuss:

* Her childhood
* Her first performance as a comedian
* The HaHa Institute (using laughter to heal the body)
* Her experiences as a lesbian comedian of color
* Her coming out story
* Her favorite comedians
* Future projects
