is one of the
hottest comics to come out of New York
City according to both The Hollywood Reporter and
Backstage Magazine who named her one of the "Top 10 Comics to Watch" in 2004.
She is currently a regular cast member of Don Imus' nationally syndicated
program "Imus in the Morning" on WABC Radio and RFD-TV. Originally from Plano, Texas this
self-described Huxtable moved to New
York 12 years ago to pursue a career in television.
With her B.S. in Broadcast Journalism from Stephens College (Columbia, MO) and
Oxford University's St. Peter's College, this former ABC affiliate reporter
took a position on the production team for WABC-TV and Barbara Walter's, "The
View" where she was first introduced to the world of comedy. After her first
stab at stand-up she was hooked. Not only did she become one of the New York
Friars' Club's youngest members; but she has since performed in all of the
major comedy clubs in New York City
and across the country.
She is now combining her comedic talent, wit,
experiences and soul to create the hysterical and heartfelt book "Laugh Long
and Prosper." Check her out at: www.karith.com.

SUZETTE SIMON - FOUNDER, NYLAUGHS
TV producer and casting director who has cast or is currently casting projects for the development departments of BET, mtvU, MTV and Discovery. Some of her comedy related projects are casting for Jerry Seinfeld's "Marriage Ref" and producing the Emmy nominated Season 4 of "Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List." Her comic demons were unleashed while writing for "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" three years ago which led her to start doing stand-up in the subways of NYC. She soon graduated to the parks with the founding of NYLaughs. Now her mission is two-fold in comedy: 1) to use it for good by ensuring that laughter becomes a free and accessible part of the daily urban experience of every New Yorker and 2) to use it to mask a more sinister and mercenary plot to acquire a shoe collection that even Oprah would envy.
NYLaughs, Inc. is a new not-for-profit corporation that wants to change the cultural landscape of the Big Apple through humor. We seek to elevate the comic arts and provide laughter for free to New Yorkers on a consistent basis by producing outdoor comedy shows throughout the City's public venues.
