Funny Folk Carla teams up with John Forster for an evening of relentlessly Funny Folk! 1.7 MB
A really good show. Her material is pretty remarkable. I find it thoughtful, funny, sensitive, kind of out in ‘left field,’-- like I used to find Steve Martin's humor... clever, a talented guitarist, and a stage presence that convinces audiences that the characters she sings about, she really cares about, or she knows something about them... the monologs between tunes really work tying the songs to universal (as well as unique) experiences audiences can identify.” ” - Carlos McCauley
