Depiction of Karen the Boss


Prank Call Victim, Victim Soundboard


Former assistant general manager at Best Western hotel


early 60s





Karen the Boss‏‎ is a hotel supervisor who works at Best Western Aku Tiki along with Bert the Desk Clerk, Mitch the Best Western Bitch, and Recording Guy (and Recording Girl). She was one of the later employees discovered by Prank Hill during an October 2011 call with Burt's soundboard. After several calls the female receptionists at the front desk, she finally confronted Bert unaware that she was talking to a soundboard. Karen remained on the phone for some time demanding an explanation for his behavior, if he was coming to work that night, and seemingly ended the call by implying he was fired ('"You will not be working ... again.").[1] Subsequently calls, however, showed that Bert was still working at the hotel and suggests she may now be aware of the soundboard community.


Karen the Boss is depicted by Meryl Streep's character Miranda Priestly in the 2006 film The Devil Wears Prada. Miranda is a cold and ruthless CEO of a high-end fashion brand, who offers grueling internship to the story's main character; an aspiring name in the fashion industry.
