Karen Mills has made a career out of making people laugh. She has been a nationally touring comedian for twenty-five years and can be heard regularly on Sirius / XM comedy channels.
One night while traveling home after a show, Jamie Dailey, of the Grammy Award winning duo “Dailey & Vincent,” heard Karen on LaughUSA and immediately recommended her to The Grand Ole Opry. On September 22, 2018 Karen made her Opry debut. She has since played the Opry numerous times including last year’s annual “Opry Goes Pink” along with Carrie Underwood. Karen’s comedy special “Pink Pants” was recently released on Dry Bar Comedy and clips from her special have garnered over 10 million views.
Karen’s straight-forward approach to the realities of life will keep you laughing at yourself as you relate to her experiences. Even ovarian cancer couldn’t stop her from turning pain into punchlines. Diagnosed after a routine checkup, Karen was determined to take on the disease with hope and humor and in 2016, she was chosen to give her talk “Cancer is a Laughing Matter” at TEDxChattanooga and has also been featured on Robin Roberts “Thriver Thursday.”
