Special Guest Headliner Karen Rontowski
Karen Rontowski:

David Brenner says, “Even if you can't spell Karen Rontowski, you'd
better remember it, because she is GREAT!”

Ms. Rontowski describes herself as having an optimistic outlook;
everything is coming up roses when you talk to Karen.  So what if her
therapist says she’s in complete denial.  The truth is, when it comes to
her standup comedy career, everything is coming up roses, or at least

Comedian Karen Rontowski’s  upbeat, optimistic and clean sense of
humor has earned her headlining spots all over the world.  She has also
opened for such show biz legends as Bob Hope, Ray Charles and the
Monkees.  Often described as a “New Age Hippie” Rontowski says
“there is no time like the present to be living in the past.”

Karen’s real touring trips (not the ones in her head) include 45 of the 50
states, Canada, Japan, Greenland and all over Europe.   She has also
entertained the troops with tales of her Polish father who once put a
drawbridge on their house… actually he just installed the garage door
upside down.  But that’s Karen….  always accentuating the positive..

A television favorite, you may have seen this hilarious woman on
Comedy Central,  Live at Gotham and Comics Unleashed.  A regular on
the Bob and Tom Radio Show, Karen keeps listeners laughing not only
with her standup, but also when she talks about her other career as a
paranormal investigator.

Recently seen performing in the encore production of David Brenner’s
“What’s so funny?” and the TBS Comedy Festival, Karen just completed
the television pilot, Karen’s Supernatural Junkyard,  in which she spear-
heads  hilarious adventures into supernatural investigations.  Just ask
her about her ghost orbs!  “I am not afraid of ghosts, they’re just people
who don’t know their dead yet.  Like Dick Cheney.”
