Kathe Farris is a Boston-based stay-at-home mom, stand-up comedian, and snack cake enthusiast. She hit the comedy scene a little late in life with a different point of view and killer material. After becoming a Comic-in-Residence at The Comedy Studio and a finalist in the Boston Comedy Festival, she recently recorded her national debut with a Dry Bar Comedy Special.


With an eye for detail and an understated edge that speaks to grandparents and frat bros alike, Kathe performs regularly at everything from corporate events to a basement show full of crust punks (one time, went great). Her weekly show, Farris and Friends Comedy Hour, even became "The Boston Globe's Critics Choice." They didn't give her a plaque so she made one. She'll show you later.

She's also been able to pass on that expertise as one of the most sought-after comedy instructors in Boston. After four years running one of the most popular workshops in town with the Boston Comedy Chicks, she's currently on staff at The Comedy Studio providing seasoned advice, constructive critiques, and the nuts and bolts of how to write and deliver jokes.
