“Night Out” – Kristina Kuzmic

Everyone needs an evening of laughter and inspiration once in a while, especially parents. On Friday, July 26, the comedian Kristina Kuzmic will share her experiences as a mother and overall cheerleader for her family. The performance will begin at 8 p.m. at the Pantages Theater in Tacoma.

Kuzmic has gained millions of followers on YouTube and Facebook through videos about raising children, being an immigrant and more. Her videos are hilarious and inspirational at the same time. They provide viewers with a sense that they’re not alone, while also letting them laugh.

Since her first video in 2011, Kuzmic has received critical acclaim for her videos on the Huffington Post, People magazine, Cosmopolitan, and the San Francisco Globe. Video topics include parents’ relationship with their children, breastfeeding in public and why she’s “totally cool” if her children are upset with her. In 2011 she was chosen from 15,000 applicants as the winner of “Oprah’s Search for the Next TV Star.” Kuzmic went on to have a reality show, The Ambush Cook, on the Oprah Winfrey Network.

Now she’s ready to share her parenting advice and comedy with a live audience. Her Hope and Humor Tour is taking her throughout the U.S. The comedian considers this a “night out” show. According to her website, Kuzmic “might wear actual pants or she might be in week-old dirty pajamas, depending on the intensity of motherhood that week.”

A self-described “sanitation engineer, chef, chauffeur, and conflict resolution guru” for her three children, Kuzmic says she struggles with parenting just as much as anyone. With wit and charm, she works hard to help parents and others know they’re not alone.

Tickets for the Pantages event range from $29 to $39. A VIP package for $75 includes a meet-and-greet with Kuzmic before the show.
