Cathy Babis brings a long list of life experiences to her stand-up routine. Her topics include her life as a frustrated cougar, the challenges of single parenthood, new technology, and her need for hugs because, “At my age, there is no such thing as bad touch. “ She grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, spent six years in the U.S. Army, and has worked as an air traffic controller, pilot, weather observer, car salesperson, and telemarketer to name a few.
Her first taste of stand-up came when she entered the Johnny Walker Red Comedy Contest in San Diego, CA in 1992, surviving the first cut. The challenges of single motherhood sent comedy to the back burner. She always told her kids, “I had a life before you were born, and I will have one when you are grown.” Now is that time.
Cathy has been of member of Toastmasters International since 1982 and placed second in the 2012 District 8 Humorous Speech contest. She is a sought-after MC for Toastmaster contests. She entertained the 2011 Business Women of Missouri 50th Annual Conference in Lake of the Ozarks, and has served as MC for professional conferences in the St. Louis area. She’s moved 40+ times in her life. Be sure to catch her act while she is still in the Midwest!
