WHO IS THE KEYNOTE SPEAKER?
Author, award-winning writer and producer, actress and stand-up comedian, in Carol’s own words, she loves making people laugh.
Carol’s dazzling, observational style humor caused her to be nominated four times for an Emmy for her writing on such extraordinary television shows as Seinfeld, The Larry Sanders Show and Saturday Night Live.
She has written for the Oscars Telecast nine times, more than any other female writer to date, most recently in 2019. Most impressively, among her many honors is the prestigious Writer’s Guild Award for her work on television’s number one comedy show, Modern Family. Carol was the Co-Executive Producer of the NBC show, Better Late than Never, which starred a remarkable line-up of such notable personalities as William Shatner, Henry Winkler, George Foreman and Terry Bradshaw. She was also the head writer for Carol Burnett’s Netflix series, A Little Help, streaming now.
Starring in five of her own comedy specials that aired on HBO, Showtime and Comedy Central, Carol holds the record (an unbelievable 25 times) for the most appearances on Late Show with David Letterman.
After all of her remarkable accomplishments, Carol still finds time to perform at many of the country’s prominent comedy clubs, theaters and universities, doing stand-up comedy at its best alone, or appearing with such famous celebrities as Jerry Seinfeld, Bill Maher and Jay Leno.
Carol is currently a Writer/Consulting Producer for HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm. She will appear in Showtime’s Funny Women of A Certain Age comedy special, coming March 2020.
And to top off an already prestigious career, Carol has written two best-sellers, When You Lie About Your Age, The Terrorists Win and her latest, How To Succeed In Business Without Really Crying.
