As a comedian, she has proudly performed in benefit shows for Camp Looking Glass, A Night For Dottie, A Night of Giving for Puerto Rico, and pollution awareness, to name a few. She has been featured in The New York Times, Time Out New York, Reader’s Digest, Broadway World, Splitsider, Vulture, New York Women in Communications, and more. Katina is proud of her one-person show, Funky Cold Katina, because it explores the world of mediums and the afterlife.
