Carl Strong grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and graduated from the University of
Wisconsin Whitewater with a master’s degree in Psychology. Carl then went on
to pursue his dreams as a stand-up comedian for 30 years, residing in Oshkosh,
Wisconsin for 27 years.
Carl was diagnosed with CHF in 2010. Initially, he underwent an ablation, cardioversion, placement of a pacemaker and internal defibrillator. All of which
only helped for a short time. With his heart functioning only at 15%, Carl
amazed his doctors by carrying on with his work, traveling across the country
doing what he loves most, making people laugh with his unique brand of comedy.
With heart function continuing to deteriorate and the days on the waiting list for a
heart transplant increasing, a benefit was held for Carl amidst a wave of
prayers and support. On May 8 2013, Carl underwent a second major surgery,
having his much-awaited transplant.
In May of 2016, three years after having the transplant, Carl feels he has been given the greatest blessing imaginable from our Creator and continues to be inspired to share his ‘Good News’. Often, you can find Carl performing on the Princess Cruise Lines and at venues across the country and internationally.
