Join Little Charlotte’s Rescue for a Night of Glorious Giggles. The Giggles Gala will be a comedy fundraiser at Par 4 Resort in Waupaca. Come early and have dinner in the Bistro (not included in ticket price) at Par 4 Resort. Then, our MC and DJ from Yo DJ Service will make sure that everyone is having a great time while we raise funds for Little Charlotte’s Rescue with engaging games and a silent auction. A light snack menu and bar will be available during the event. Our STAR performer, stand up comedian Tracy Schroeder, will take the stage at 7:00 PM for an age 18+ comedy performance. Other surprises are in store – and an “PAWsome” time will be had by all!
Since 2003, Tracy Schroeder has been making audiences laugh.
Does she have a good stage presence?
You bet. This sardonic jokester sizzles on stage. She grasps the microphone with deliberate
ease and a confident smile. She has skills: her act is polished without being stale and she
seamlessly transitions crowd work into her material like the seasoned pro that she is. She has a
conversational style that is wildly compelling. The crowd hangs on every word, waiting
anxiously for what she might say next. Tracy endears herself to the audience with her subtle yet
adorable Wisconsin accent, giving the illusion of a safe, middle of the road, ho hum comic. But
don’t be fooled by her innocent look and casual demeanor… this lady is a shark attack of
sarcasm. Before you know it she has grabbed hold of you with her sharp wit and drowned you
Ok… but is she funny?
Very. Tracy has a unique ability to find new angles to jest about no matter the topic at hand.
She has a classic joke telling style that never fails, with misdirection, one liners and set up
punch combinations flowing in rapid succession. Unlike many of her comedy peers, she doesn’t
waste time with filler, she has too much to talk about. Whether she is discussing her beloved
(and sometimes not so beloved) state, aging, dieting, staying in shape, getting a new puppy or a
wide variety of other subjects, she does so with the finesse of a comedy assassin. She sees the
world through a pair of hilariously jaded eyes. She pulls no punches when she performs. No
one would categorize her as a dirty comic but she isn’t afraid to discuss adult topics in adult
ways. She is not your typical female and certainly not your typical comedian.
In her 17 years as a comedian, she has worked with some of the best. She has opened for
Charlie Berens of the Manitowoc Minute, Mark Curry from “Hanging with Mr. Cooper” and
Kevin Bozeman from “Last Comic Standing”. She has been featured on the Nickelodeon
website, “NickMoms” where several of her bits were in frequent rotation. She has also been
featured at the Cincinnati Brew HaHa and in clubs, theaters and casinos throughout the
Midwest. The comedic talents of this saucy spitfire are in high demand.
Tracy couldn’t imagine doing anything else for a living and it’s not just because she is too lazy to
get a “normal” job. She has a gift for seeing the hypocrisies in life and a need to share it with an
audience. She didn’t choose comedy, comedy chose her. And for that, we are all lucky. Tracy
Schroeder is a comedian worth looking out for.
