Don Knotts' daughter to perform 'Tied Up In Knotts' at library
Ascension Parish Library joins libraries nationwide in the celebration of National Library Week. Karen Knotts will be appearing in Tied Up In Knotts, a hilarious one-woman show about growing up with her famous father, Don Knotts. This fun-filled evening is scheduled for Wednesday, April 16, at 6 p.m. at the Ascension Parish Library in Gonzales.
Karen Knotts will take you on a wild journey, along with a host of zany characters all portrayed by Knotts, as she describes what life was like growing up the daughter of the legendary actor and comedian, Don Knotts. Don starred in the long-running hit sitcoms “The Andy Griffith Show” as the bumbling Barney Fife and in “Three’s Company” as the googly-eyed Mr. Furley. From Morgantown, West Virginia, he started as a ventriloquist and finished his career with five Emmy Awards.
Karen learned her craft at the University of Southern California, where she was directed by the great Emmy award-winning director, Alex Siegal. After graduating, she did shows in theatres across the country with her father. After her father passed away in 2006, Karen wanted to pay tribute to him. In Tied Up In Knotts, Karen captures the true essence of her father, who she believes was funniest when he was just being himself.
Karen, who has appeared on A & E Biography and CNN Larry King Live, uses a unique blend of improvisation, music, and comedy which is a delight to audiences of all ages. Her ability to create characters with a clean animated style has made her a universal demand in all markets. Tied Up In Knotts has been hailed as L.A. Comedy Award’s “Funniest One Women Show.”
