COMEDY | Karen Williams 

Cleveland-based comedian, actor, and writer Karen Williams is also a diversity trainer and inspirational lecturer, whose HaHA Institute (Humor and Healing Arts) offers workshops that aim to build self-awareness and self-confidence, and encourage tolerance and respect. Riffing in a standup routine on the continuous letter additions to the LGBTQ+ group, she said: "C is for curious...who the fuck isn't curious? And their allies, so who's left? The haters. I hope one day we can just say 'human beings,' and that'll cover it." Williams will be in Rochester this week for a night of comedy presented by ImageOut at Comedy @ The Carlson. Rochester-based singer-songwriter Meg Gehman & The Influence will open.

Karen Williams performs on Wednesday, June 6, at Comedy @The Carlson, 50 Carlson Road. 7 p.m. $16-$20. imageout.org; tickettailor.com/events/imageout/162142/#.
