Deborah Kimmett to Bring OVERNIGHT SENSATION to Theatre Row in November

On November 6th, Deborah Kimmett, star of Sirius XM Radio's hit show Downward Facing Broad, will bring her new show, Overnight Sensation, LIVE to New York's Theatre Row.

Kimmett believes if you can't be relevant anymore you can be funny. And in Overnight Sensation she takes you on a 60-minute romp that burns the stereotype of the older woman to the ground.

A Shaman, a healer, a stand-up, and a tour guide for aging, Kimmett has been a comic for 42 years "before women were even funny." In her new show she takes us on a hilarious odyssey that pokes fun at the Hallmark movie Grandmas, offers tips on how to avoid
a fight at Aquafit and how to forgive your biggest heckler of all: your mother.

"You will be taken from gut splitting humour to tears in the blink of an eye."

This show is not just relevant for the over 60 set, but also for their kids who one day may have to take care of them.

"Kimmett made a 26 year old and a 60 ( mumble)-year-old erupt with laughter at the same time over and over again"

Strap on your seatbelt and take a 60-minute romp into the mind of one of Canada's funniestwomen.
