The Lazy Handle Show is coming to Omaha!


Star of the Lazy Handle Show, Katrina Frlan, has been invited to Omaha!

Katrina Frlan, host of the YouTube channel Lazy Handle Show, said her “stomach was in knots” when she found out she would be heading to Omaha for the second leg of the Curling World Cup.

The 11-year-old from Ottawa, Canada has drawn quite the following since she debuted her own online curling show in late August this year. Many top curlers have become fans and she has even featured on Canadian TV.

When her father, Louis, recently handed her an invitation from the World Curling Federation to Nebraska for the second leg, he filmed her ecstatic reaction.

“I felt nervous because I did not know why the WCF would send me an email,” admitted the budding curling broadcaster. “I knew it had to do with the Lazy Handle Show, but I thought maybe it was an interview request.

“After I read it, I was very excited, but my stomach was in knots. It was amazing.”

In Omaha, Katrina will not only get to mix with the athletes and get behind-the-scenes access, but will also produce a special Lazy Handle Show from the Ralston Arena.

Katrina is not just a fan of talking about the sport, she is an aspiring curler herself and features in an under-15 team, finishing fifth in her age group at the Hit Draw & Tap competition at the Ontario provincials.

On coming up with the concept of the Lazy Handle Show, Katrina drew inspiration from Olympic gold medallist-turned-commentator, Russ Howard.

“I listened to great commentators like Russ Howard and Cheryl Bernard all the time and I thought I could have my own show where I do the commentating and share my opinions on YouTube.”

We look forward to welcoming Katrina to Omaha for the second leg of the Curling World Cup in Omaha. Just as long as she gets her homework done first!
