After successfully completing a 30 city tour at some of the most highly regarded indie comedy venues in North America and Europe, (including Union Hall Brooklyn, Comedy Bar Toronto and Dynasty Typewriter in Los Angeles), her solo show, Straight for Pay, was positively received by press and audiences alike (including The Boston Globe, Austin Chronicle, San Diego Tribune). Connors’ appearances include the prestigious Just for Laughs, two seasons as a series regular on E!’s Dating #NoFilter, and her own investigative comedy Cara Takes Up Space on OUTtv. Socially awkward yet self assured, and with the ability to transform into a wide variety of characters and personas, Connors skillfully intertwines hilarious stories with a well-crafted charismatic, on-stage persona.
