About The Authors

The Secret Comedy of Women®)

Ms. Gehring and Ms. Klein both began writing and performing comedy at an early age. While young Barbara directed elaborate puppet shows in her secret fort a thousand miles away in Canada, little Linda was producing extravagant backyard circuses in a tiny Colorado mountain town. Neither could have foreseen how well these skills would blend together decades later when they wrote the hit comedy show The Secret Comedy of Women. Had they known each other all those years ago, The Secret Comedy of Women is exactly the type of show they would have created together and now as adults, it is exactly the kind of show in which they’ve always wanted to perform. Gehring and Klein have successful careers in the entertainment industry beyond comedy and have rich expertise in the areas of training, writing, creative thinking, logistics, administration, marketing and public relations. Nearly a quarter of a million women throughout North America have seen The Secret Comedy of Women in theatres and at corporate events. Barbara and Linda are excited to see what the future will bring as they are only limited by where there are women who want to laugh!
