From her network debut on "The Late Show with David Letterman" to
Comedy Central and Comics Unleashed, Karen's show is getting great
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 stand up comedy career, everything is coming up roses, or at least
laughter. She describers herself as completely confident in her
confusion. She never knows where she's going but she always gets
there....5 minutes late.
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 stand up, but also when she talks about her other career as a
"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."
Rontowski can also be seen in the movie shorts Return to Sender and
Some Kind of Joke.
What People are saying...
“She wins the audience and has them in the palm of her hand from the
first joke. This is the kin of off-the-wall yet endearing comedy that other
comics can only dream of achieving”
Wheeler Opera House
“Karen was a great success! She turned an otherwise boring event into
an evening full of fun and laughter. Our biggest concern was finding an
comedienne that was non-offensive and catered to a sophisticated
crowd. She far surpassed our expectations.”
Vice President Merrill Lynch
“Karen, your 2 standing ovations were so well deserved! To say our
conventioneers loved you would be an understatement. BRAVO!
INCREDIBLE! These are just a few of the superlatives of the many
compliments we’ve heard from your performance during the National
Association of Purchasing Managers Convention.”
Entertainment Coordinator and Event Planner For Purchase Pro
“Karen Rontowski stole the show and had the audience in the palm of
her hand as she comfortably paced the stage and offered her
observational comedy. Karen, ah, Karen! What a breath of fresh air she
-Lyle E Davis
Entertainment Critic for The Paper, Escondido, CA
“I wish I had worn panty liners!”
“There are few comedians and even fewer female comedians that can
make you laugh without using blue humor. Karen Rontowski may be
the funniest woman on the planet and does it without resorting to humor
that can be found offensive which is important when booking an
entertainer for a corporate audience. There is no doubt in my mind that
Karen is a shinning star that can top off any corporate event or meeting.”
President Point Loma Community Bank
“Why is this woman in my dressing room?”
“Comedy with Class!”

“…the best comedy I have seen in a long time!”
