On the night of Wolfy and Leat’s premiere of Wolfy’s Journey, I sat and heard the tale of how Leat had begun her journey as a puppeteer and film-maker partly at 3rd Ward Moviehouse, providing themed material for one of their anniversary shows. Doubtless their encouragement of her art helped to contribute to her confidence and the brilliant film which followed, soon to be released on DVD. The moment I heard about this and Moviehouse’s recent plea to artists to submit specific shorts for their fourth anniversary, I immediately thought, “Kara Morgan.”
After a short explanatory email and a link, my dear friend pounced on the opportunity like a short-haired vixen and poof! created a brilliant episode of the Kara Morgan Show to fit perfectly into their theme. Their requirements? They requested “2-minute propaganda films relating to two pairs, four bases, four directions, four suits of cards, or the four horsemen.” Kara provided all of them, quite brilliantly. My only question? What’s her second favorite number? I smell a sequel.
Last week, a friend of mine here in Tri-Cities, WA asked me, “Who is Kara Morgan, anyway?” Oh, that made me happy! I love this woman, and I can’t possibly stop featuring The Kara Morgan Show webseries. As long as I can promote her anywhere and everywhere I go, I will. Still, inspired by my intrigued friend’s question, I hope to post a thorough interview or entry by Kara soon. In the meantime, take a moment to sit back and witness her as she makes one of the boldest sacrifices known to womankind.
Somewhere along the way while packing, traveling, and receiving the stamp of approval for my voicing of Nellie from my Arkansas-native voice teacher and his wife, I seem to have lost my ability to think. Leaving in the morning for Tri-Cities, WA to spend the next seven weeks rehearsing and performing with some great people, I admit I have little to contribute except to say that I LOVE NYC and will see it and my incredible friends very soon in December. As you read, I fly overhead, Delta-willing. In the meantime for today, I bring you my dear friend Kara Morgan, for whom despite my fatigue I can easily think of five of the best reasons to watch The Kara Morgan Show.
If you don’t, she may try throwing her spikey yoga ball from the intro at you. She looks like she could do some damage with that thing.
She knows where to find bears.
Girl knows how to get her Nutella on.

Without furthier delay, The Kara Morgan Show: Episode VII
So Kara, what do I get for posting all of your episodes?
Oh, how did I miss this? Perhaps you need this as much as I… How to Relax:
I love me some Kara Morgan. Now off to convince myself to sleep before a long day of Yom Kippur services singing with a truly lovely congregation, North Shore Synagogue in Syosset, NY. For those of you observing the day, have an easy and meaningful fast.
Presenting episode three of the Kara Morgan Show on Politeness…
I admire Kara so much for finding her own comedic niche and unapologetically producing and posting it online (her opening credits sell it for me every time). Personally, I can’t wait for the day when I can subscribe to the Kara Morgan Show on ITunes. In the meantime, a subscription to her YouTube channel will suffice. If you missed episodes one and two, you can find them on Day 85 of Skydiving for Pearls.
