Nobody tells stories like Etta Mae Mumphries. And nobody has met and influenced so many important people! You may not have heard of Etta Mae, but surely you know of Josephine Baker, Billie Holiday, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Sammy Davis, Jr., and the list goes on and on. Known sometimes as the “Black Forrest Gump,” Miss Etta Mae is a font of biblical wisdom and encourager extraordinaire. Her hilarious words of wisdom will bless your soul and have you in stitches all at the same time.

Miss Etta Mae Mumphries is the “altar” ego of actress and writer Karen Bankhead. Etta Mae is part of the award winning one-woman show, “The V05 Experience,” performed at the HBO Workspace, Los Angeles Women’s Theatre Festival, Comedy Central Showcase, Official Selection of the 2011 United Solo Fest – NYC, 2010 San Francisco Fringe Festival, Ira Aldridge Playwriting competition (2nd place), and other venues. She is topical, rhetorical, and always HYSTERICAL!

Available for charity events, church functions, weddings, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, funerals, flea markets, and parades–so long as she can sit.
