Parents' Night Out

End Date: 8/23/2013End Time: 11:30 PM
Event Description
Parents Night Out is an "instant audience favorite" delighting theatre audiences around the country. Karen Morgan, a Southern belle, and Jim Colliton, a Boston Irishman, are both comedy veterans and parents who are married...just not to each other. So they bring you both sides of the story. 

Through standup comedy, improv and hilarious audience participation, Jim and Karen give parents of all ages a chance to laugh at the trials and tribulations of parenthood, marriage, family and every day life in America. Parents Night Out is clean "comedy for grownups."

Karen Morgan - Performer
A former trial attorney, Karen left the practice of law to stay home with her three children under the age of three. This foray into parenthood led to the start of a successful comedy career. Just weeks after taking her first standup class, Karen was selected as one of seven finalists in Nick at Nite’s Search for the Funniest Mom in America from over 1,000 entries. Since then, she has toured theatres, comedy clubs and for corporate audiences around the country. She also has a weekly radio spot (The Mother Load) and can be heard on Sirius XM. Karen’s clean comedy has made her a favorite with clients like Mercedes Benz, Ronald McDonald House and the American Heart Association. She is the only comedian to be selected to represent Nestlé in their national campaign. Karen lives in Cumberland, Maine with her husband, three kids and a big dumb dog.

Jim Colliton - Performer
Being married and raising 3 kids Jim has turned his every man’s life style into a hilarious comedy routine. Talking about basic daily activities like yard work or dealing with peanut butter allergies, Jim’s love for performing comes across every time he takes the stage. His well-crafted jokes are weaved into his spontaneous crowd work bringing down the house in theatres, comedy clubs and cruise ships across the world. In 2009 Jim’s first comedy CD “Stories from the Suburbs” won the prestigious Just Plain Folks Music Festival’s Comedy CD of the Year in Nashville TN. Along with Television appearances on Comedy Central and Ed McMahon’s next big star Jim is considered by many as the country’s next break out star. Jim has shared the stage with Patti Labelle, Kenny Rogers, and the Beach Boys. Jim also stays busy with many corporate appearances for such companies as Pepsi, American Express and Sheraton Hotels.
