Reena Calm is a pun-slinger who tours all over the country, living out of her tricked-out Prius. She started #CALMEDY in Chicago and left on a mission to make people laugh in all 50 States. Nothing can stop her just kidding there was a pandemic. She’s happy to be vaxxed and back to work as a showbiz hobo, and the only woman in America living on the road full time as a professional stand up comedian. You can find her book Once A Pun A Time: Legend Of A Sighs Queen on Amazon. She’s been on Doug Loves Movies, was a Comic of the Week on The Jackie & Laurie Show, opened for Arsenio Hall, and has probably headlined some bar near you, or at least slept in a nearby parking lot.
