Cleveland native Karen Mills will be a guest comic on “The Henry Cho Show,” a comedy variety show airing Sept. 8 at 8 p.m. on Great American Country, Charter Channel 184.

The fresh, funny and original comedienne has been compared to Ellen Degeneres, Jerry Seinfeld and Bill Cosby for her clever and easy-to-relate to humor.

Mills has worked with Jon Stewart, was a contributing writer for “The Rosie O’Donnell Show,” and tours with the Southern Fried Chicks, a combination of very different, very funny women. All are from the South, and give their hilarious takes on life, love and the pursuit of happiness.

The well-traveled comic who lives in Chattanooga admits, “I am NOT a Southern belle, unless I need to be.”

Mills is still famous in Bradley County for having made the winning last-second shot in the 1976 State Basketball Championship game. She also played basketball at both Black Fox Elementary School and the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, where she was a Division I All-American.

In 1981, she led the nation in assists and was the first female inducted into UTC’s basketball hall of fame. She brings that same dynamic energy to her comedy. With a keen sense of timing and wide range of topics, Mills has broad audience appeal and knows how to bring down the house.

“The Henry Cho Show” can be seen at 8 p.m. on Sept. 8, Sept. 9 at midnight, 11 a.m. and 5 a.m.; and Sept. 10 at 3 p.m. After the showing on GAC, it will be available online at GACTV.com.

“The Henry Cho Show” is suitable for the entire family. Besides Mills, comics Ric Roberts and Jim Hope will also appear on the show. Special guests will be Vince Gill, Phil Vassar and Rodney Adkins.
