PULLMAN, Wash. — Kathy Buckley, who uses her comedy to make audiences laugh while promoting disability awareness, will perform Tuesday, March 11, at Washington State University.
The event is set for 8 p.m. at the Compton Union Building Auditorium. Prices are $3 with student identification and $5 for others. Children 12 and under are free. Tickets can be purchased in advance at the Office of Human Relations and Diversity in French Administration Building, Room 134, and the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Allies Program in the CUB, Room B19A. The tickets also will be available at the door the night of the event.
Buckley has appeared on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “The Improv” and VH1’s “Stand-Up Spotlight” and has been nominated for an American Comedy Award three years in a row.
In her 15th year performing, Buckley’s timing in storytelling and comedy attracts audiences everywhere. She has the ability to make one laugh – and sometimes cry – as she brings her story of hearing impairment, cancer survival, abused childhood and long-term physical rehabilitation to life.
She recently completed an autobiography, “If I Could Hear What I See,” and produced a one-woman television presentation on PBS by the same title.
The event is sponsored by the Disabilities Awareness Association, Holiday Inn, Pullman Memorial Hospital’s Summit Therapy and the Office of Human Relations and Diversity are co-sponsors.
