Western Carolina University will present “Two Thin,” a comedy and lecture about eating disorders, on Thursday, March 29, at 8pm.
The hour-long program, part of Women’s History Month at WCU, will take place in the recital hall of the Coulter Building. It is open to the public free of charge.
The performance, designed to be both educational and entertaining, will be given by stand-up comics Michelle Garb and Dani Klein, a recovered anorexic and bulimic. The comedians will speak candidly about the serious subject of food obsession.
“By making educational programs on eating disorders fun and entertaining, “Two Thin” fosters audience involvement – both physically and emotionally, in a way that has never been done before,” said Pamela Gutherie, director of the American Association of Anorexia and Bulimia.
Garb has performed at more than 150 colleges and recently appeared on “The Chris Rock Show.” Klein has appeared in the films “Wall Street,” “The Doors” and “Money Train,” and recently appeared on the NBC television drama “Law and Order.”
