This Year’s Entertainment
Caroline Rhea, stand-up comedian and actress, brings a fresh, smart and spontaneous approach to all of her work.
In 1989, Caroline ventured to New York to start her career in stand-up comedy. She studied in the stand-up program at the New School of Social Research and trained at the comedy club, Catch a Rising Star. With nightly gigs at New York’s venerable clubs, Caroline’s status quickly grew and she became an integral part of the city’s comedy scene. Her career was further boosted by numerous appearances on “MTV’s Half-Hour Comedy Hour,” “Comic Strip Live” and “Caroline’s Comedy Hour.” For the last seventeen years, Caroline has continued to perform to sold-out audiences in top comedy clubs all over the country and in Canada.
