Most U.S. states, Most Canadian provinces, cruise ships, English television, and even a week in Guam. She’s headlined at CAROLINE’S, THE PUNCH LINES, THE IMPROVISATIONS, THE COMEDY STORES, and CAESAR’S TAHOE, to name a few.
In addition to the road, Carrie was regularly on television doing every stand-up ensemble show from PBS’ COMEDY TONIGHT (which she later hosted for two award-winning seasons), AN EVENING AT THE IMPROV (later hosting a BEST-OF episode), to guesting on every talker from THE SALLY JESSE RAPHAEL SHOW, MARILU, VICKI1, THE LATE SHOW, ‘A’ LIST, LEEZA, to CAROLINE’S, and COMEDY CENTRAL. Her original Comedy Tonight performance was nominated for a local Emmy award, but was beaten out by a dog show. Lots of prisoners wrote letters.
CRISTINA & FRIENDS was to be a precursor to The View, with Cristina Ferrare filling Barbara Walters’ pumps. Carrie was there too, enjoying the live talk format in addition to the clothes, hair, and makeup.
Then Carrie was hired by Roseanne to write stand-up and special projects like THE MTV MUSIC AWARDS, and the monologue and sketches when Roseanne hosted SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE. This segued into three seasons as a Story Editor on ROSEANNE, where Carrie ran her own “joke room.” She guest-starred on the sitcom as well. When Roseanne conceived her daily talker, Carrie was an original hire. You’d have to buy her a big strappin’ cocktail to hear any more about that.
A book, “My Mom’s Meaner Than Your Mom: True Stories of Mean Mothers,” is in Development. It just never ends. Carrie practices anusara yoga and is trying to make the world a better place, one laugh at a time.
