Interviewed by Oprah Winfrey after writing her first book, “Standup Comedy: The Book,”Judy Carter went from playing Vegas as a headlining standup comic to become an in-demand corporate speaker. Speaking on The Power of Purpose to overcome stress and navigate change, she was featured in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, CNN, as well as being a frequent contributor to NPR’s “All Things Considered.”
Judy doesn’t like to brag, but she did write the Bible. No joke, she’s the author of “The Comedy Bible” (Simon & Schuster) as well as “The Message of You” (St. Martin’s Press). She will be signing copies of her latest book, "The Comedy Bible: The New Testament."
Come early and hear Judy's hilarious keynote "Your Life IS a Joke! How to Add Laughs to Stories with Judy Carter"
Be ready to laugh and learn with Judy!
