Bio"I wish she did drugs, so there was an explanation for her behavior." -Traci’s mother
The self proclaimed love child of Cher and Klinger, Traci Kanaan grew up in Berea, Ohio, a quiet middle class community on Cleveland’s west side. Her Italian mother loved opera, dance and theater. Her Lebanese father loved stock car racing, flea markets, and dirty jokes. Traci combined these influences to make a comedy yard sale...with music. You’ve seen it before...but not on display like this!
InfluencesWeird Al Yankovic, Paula Poundstone, Michael Mack, Chris Rock, Eddie Murphy, Robin Williams, Mitch Hedberg, Drew Carey, Ron White and Ellen Degeneres.
