She has been called “Florida's answer to JOAN RIVERS” and has re-invented herself as one of the top stand up comediennes to emerge on the current scene and travels all over the country as a top tribute artist and look- a -like as the one and only JOAN RIVERS for many corporate functions and cruises.
BARBARA grew up in Boston where she studied ballet, jazz dancing and piano. She later went on to become a music major at the University of Florida. Blessed with a wonderful voice, it wasn't long before she started her very successful singing career. Her singing and acting abilities took her to BROADWAY, where she appeared in HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING, CAMELOT, THE UNSINKABLE MOLLY BROWN, MILK AND HONEY, and recently a tour of SUGAR (“SOME LIKE IT HOT”).
LAS VEGAS saw Barbara appear at the DESERT INN and CAESAR'S PALACE along with tours of Australia, Japan, South America and Indonesia.
