Gifted comedienne, award-winning actress, accomplished author, and renowned inspirational speaker Kathy Buckley is a force like no other. Billed as “ America’s First Hearing Impaired Comedienne”, Kathy Buckley is also a five-time American Comedy Award Nominee as Best Stand-Up Female Comedienne. As an actress, she is known for her guest starring roles on shows such as Touched by an Angel, and for her critically acclaimed one woman Off-Broadway show, Don’t Buck with Me/Now Hear This!. As a motivational speaker, she inspires hundreds of thousands of people around the world, sharing her story of overcoming some of the most difficult obstacles one can imagine in life, and how she met those challenges with dignity, courage, and laughter. Kathy’s book, If You Could Hear What I See, will have you laughing and crying as you experience the amazing story of her life. She has received thousands of letters and emails of thanks and praise, regarding both her book and her original PBS special, No Labels, No Limits! She was awarded the CINE Golden Eagle Award as the writer and executive producer of the special, and the Media Access Award for Outstanding Television Special. Her highly acclaimed autobiographical theatre play, Now Hear This! had its Off-Broadway premiere at New York’s Lamb’s Theatre, and not only brought the comic actress a legion of faithful new fans, but a wealth of critical praise from New York media. Little wonder, since the production (originally titled Don’t Buck With Me!), first opened in Los Angeles at Hollywood’s legendary Tamarind Theatre, with both Kathy and the show winning the distinguished Los Angeles Theater Ovation Award for Best Writing of a World Premiere Play or Musical and the Los Angeles entertainment industry’s coveted Media Access Award as Best Play of the Year. Success, however, in the theater or any other medium, was far from mind the first time Kathy stood the world of comedy on its ear.
