Kathe Farris

Kathe Farris is a suburban housewife and mother of two teenagers. She shares her unsolicited advice and wisdom about everyday things from calcium supplements to the political awfulness behind book groups. Ms. Farris participated in the Boston Comedy Festival 2014 & 2015, Women in Comedy Festival 2015 and the Chicago Funny Festival 2015. In August 2016 she will be Comic in Residence at The Comedy Studio. She performs frequently at Laugh Boston, ImprovBoston, The Comedy Studio, Boston Comedy Chicks and a host of local and private shows including, but not limited to, a hair salon in Malden. Ms. Farris started performing stand up nineteen years ago before career, babies and all that comes with it. Kathe returned to the microphone 3 years ago after collecting a minivan full of material and a desire to model to her kids that you should do what you love...and stay in school and don’t do drugs.
