Johannah Knott

Known for her biting comedy about suburban life, Johannah Knott has taken a turn for the green with her new show, the All Organic Comedy Tour. Knott and four funny colleagues go for "sustainable laughs" talking trash (literally) and more.

Best eco-routines: All Organic Comedy Tour on Youtube (view Knott at 1:23 and 3:47)

Favorite green joke: "I can sympathize with people being reluctant to jump on the eco train! We know it's good for us so we better at least buy the ticket. And in spite of our reluctance and resentment and how much it's killing our wallets ... you can't put a price on doing the right thing. Then I see free-range chicken for sale … SERIOUSLY? ... FREE RANGE CHICKENS ... They want that much for HOMELESS POULTRY?"
