Geri Jewell
became the first person with a disability to have a regular role on a prime time network series when she played Cousin Geri for three seasons on The Facts of Life beginning in 1981.
She has since opened up many doors as an actress and a comedienne over the past 30 years, not only for people with disabilities, but also women in general.

Geri will be discussing the subject of women in comedy next week as part of a panel discussion with Judy Carter and David Misch at the California Women’s Conference, which will take place Sept. 23-24 at the Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, CA. Her book, I’m Walking as Straight as I Can: Transcending Disability in Hollywood and Beyond, is a very candid and poignant look at some of the many obstacles that she has overcome throughout her life and career —some of which have to do with living with cerebral palsy, some of which have to do with the entertainment industry itself. Geri Jewell will be joining us during our second hour.

Also joining us this week will be singer/actress Katharine Kramer. Kat is the founder of Kat Kramer’s Films That Change the World, a series of motion picture screenings that raise awareness about important social issues — a sensibility that Kat inherited directly from her father, legendary producer/director Stanley Kramer. Among the films in the series are The Cove, the Academy Award-winning documentary about the slaughter of dolphins in Japan, and Teach the Children Well, a short film narrated by Lily Tomlin that addresses the growing problem of bullying in schools today.

An accomplished singer, Kat will be performing along with Le Petit Cirque at Circus PAWS at the Avalon Theatre in Hollywood on Sunday, Sept. 30 beginning at 7pm. CircusPAWS is an animal-free circus that Bob Barker describes as “magical and
entertaining… proof that a circus does not need animals in order to be spectacular.” We’ll ask Kat how she became involved with PAWS, as well as talk about her Films That Change the World series and more, when she joins us in our first hour.

Plus: Tony and Donna will a special look at the 40th anniversary of M*A*S*H on television, and Greg Ehrbar with another edition of the DVD report. It’ll be a full program as always, and we certainly hope you’ll join us.
