Comedian Carmen Morales ready for the challenge of a Montana audience

Carmen Morales has never been to Montana.

That will change this week as the standup comic embarks on a four-stop tour of the state. She’ll be in Billings on Thursday, Nov. 17, and then continue to Bozeman on Nov. 18, Missoula on Nov. 19 and Helena on Nov. 20.

She’s been doing comedy for 16 years, and that’s involved shows in around 40 states and several countries. Still, she admits that she’s a little nervous about performing in Montana for the first time.

“It’s a new market,” she explained. “I’ve never really performed for these folks. You always want people to like what you do and get all the references.”

It’s a reasonable worry. Morales lives in Los Angeles now, but she got her start in Florida. Orlando might have a 407 area code but other than that, it shares very little with the 406.

Yet, Montana is steadily becoming a standup destination. Which isn’t totally surprising. After all, Missoula has always had some busy open mics, and hey, Dana Carvey was born in Montana — just don’t mention that he moved away at age two.
