ABOUT OUR SPEAKER: Karen Knotts is the author of Tied Up In Knotts, a memoir about growing up with her legendary comedian father, Don Knotts. She also tours throughout the U.S. with her funny and critically-acclaimed one woman show, also called “Tied Up in Knotts.” Karen performs standup comedy at the Ice House, Flappers, the Laugh Factory, and Comedy Store. TV and film credits include: ‘Return to Mayberry’, An ‘Occurrence at Black Canyon’, ‘One of Our Own’, and the ‘Vice Academy’ series. Karen also writes for the stage, her one woman play ‘The Visitor’ was a finalist for the Merce Awards in 2009.
ABOUT THE BOOK: Much has been written about Don Knotts’s career, especially about his iconic role as Barney Fife on The Andy Griffith Show, but personal views into the man himself are few and far between. In Tied Up in Knotts, a loving daughter provides a full-life narrative of her father: Don’s difficult childhood in an abusive home, his escape into comedic performance, becoming a household name, his growth as a feature film actor, his failing health, and his family life throughout, leading to touching and hilarious moments that will make the reader laugh and cry. Those looking for a behind-the-scenes peek at the show, from the nuts and bolts of production to the hilarious pranks and heartfelt moments between the cast and crew, will see it all through the eyes of the little girl who grew up on the set. Knotts will delight readers with the memories of celebrities touched by Don’s life, including Ron Howard, Tim Conway, Andy Griffith, Elinor Donahue, John Waters, Barbara Eden, Katt Williams, and Jim Carrey.
