From Washington D.C. to Wyoming, Karen has spoken to thousands of audiences about confidence and comedy. Karen Eddington started her speaking career in 2003, right out of college, as people asked to hear her college thesis findings on confidence and body image issues. Karen started by asking over 500 high school students how they felt about themselves.

In 15 years Karen has done both qualitative and quantitative research (both interviews and using formal survey) and documented patterns on self-worth and self-care. Karen has since participated in community education programs, been a regular media contributor with over 50 TV appearances, founded a self-worth outreach center, and earned a feature on ESPN for helping cheerleaders break stereotypes. She has studied women, youth, and families to understand their pressures and offer them real solutions to live happy, successful lives. An example is “The Under Pressure Project” which asked 500 high school students to pinpoint their biggest pressures and the best solutions they had for getting through.

Through all the outreach work Karen pursued her stand-up comedy goals. The first time Karen got up the courage to try using comedy– no one laughed. It lit a fire of curiosity and courage. Karen spent six years watching and studying why people laugh, she started participating in IMPROV, and eventually left the shadows of the comedy club and started her own clean comedy show for families about families.

She continues both self-esteem and identity related research and comedy writing.

She is married to licensed marriage and family therapist, Cory Eddington.  Karen’s 12-year-old son says, “My mom professionally speaks.  My dad professionally listens.”
