Nardos Osterhart has a rather unique origin story. For one thing, she was born in Ethiopia, and political turmoil took her family to Germany and Oklahoma as a child. But it’s here in Michigan that she found her real calling: stand-up comedy. In 2013, she was named the “Funniest Person in Grand Rapids.” Now, she's created a one-woman show, Halfricana kind of half-memoir, half-comedy show detailing her life and childhood. Osterhart will perform Halfrican at Louie’s Back Room in Kalamazoo on April 29th.
