“This family-friendly show is touching, you will not be disappointed! Karen not only hit a home run, she knocked it out of the park! Few are the actors/actresses that can carry an audience solo for an entire performance–she did it! Mixing humor with touching insight into a Hollywood life with a comedic legend and father, Karen is a top rate entertainer. And… not only did she endear herself to the audience during the show, but followed it up with personal availability afterwards. She loves people and it shows both on and off the stage. Sitting on the edge of our seats, we laughed so hard it hurt.” — Wilson & Julie Adams, Murfreesboro, Tennessee

Karen Knotts is moving, incredibly funny and leaves you feeling on a natural high when you exit. I give it six out of five stars… (the other star being her).” — Richard McCain, Reviewer, Australia
“Knotts doesn’t shy away from the pricklier parts of life as the child of a national treasure.” — Nuala Calvi, The Stage
“It really pulls at the heart strings.” — Diana London, quoted in The Los Angeles Times
