Kat Timpf Live: You Can’t Joke About That

Time: April 7 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Ages: 12+
Venue: Joy & Lynch Christian Warehouse Theatre
Cost: $40 – $75

Kat Timpf LIVE “You Can’t Joke About That” is a hilarious 90-minute show that takes a deep dive into every aspect of her best-selling book. From her worse-than-humble beginnings starting out as an adult, to crazy exes, deaths, and the infamous “Chapter 5”, Kat takes the audience on a hysterical step-by-step ride on her path to the present-and why comedy through the dark times is what helped her survive. With the charm, wit, and ridiculous commentary we’ve all come to love, Kat is guaranteed to have you laughing, thinking, and leaving with a deeper sense of community than ever before.
