Vaudevisuals interview with Karen McCarty – “Gladys Farkas”

Interview with ‘Healthy Humor’ co-founder Karen McCarty. Talking about her grandmother Gladys Farkas who performed with Rose’s Royal Midgets.

Karen McCarty and I have known each other for quite sometime. When I heard that her grandmother was a ‘midget’ performer with Rose’s Royal Midgets I couldn’t believe my ears. I am publishing a book on this unique performing company and with this interview I had first hand information about a company that has been gone for years. A company of 25 midgets that performed World-wide for many years.

Trained as a young girl in dance and singing she was quite an asset to the company once she was employed by Ike Rose.

Healthy Humor is a Not for Profit Performing Arts Organization whose performers create joy, wonder, and laughter for hospitalized children nationwide.”
