th. Ticket cost is twenty five dollars with proceeds directed to the Humboldt Library Foundation to benefit the local library system.
Often controversial, very outspoken, unapologetically political and always entertaining Karel hosts a regular talk show locally weekdays on KGOE 1480AM News/Talk as well as weekends on the Bay Area’s powerhouse talk station KGO.
Along with his radio talk show hosting duties, Karel is a high profile blogger and feature writer for the Huffington Post, has had his editorial pieces appear in the Wall Street Journal, was editor and a columnist for The Advocate.com, and was a celebrity photographer for Billboard Magazine.
Karel has also been a recording artist and still brings his standup comedy routine to venues in San Francisco and Monterey.
Karel has authored two books.
You Can’t Say That, a collection of essays frankly addressing a wide range of topics and his most recent publication, Shouting at Windmills, BS From Bush to Obama, a wide-ranging book of essays that chronicles the end of the Bush Era and Obama to the present. He also contributed to “When I Knew” by Robert Trachtenberg, stories of “coming out” directed at gay and lesbian youth.
