What to Expect
You can expect a professional entertainer who will be on time and do what is agreed to in the contract with guaranteed satisfaction from the audience. Carla "The Truth" is personable and relates to her audience.
Carla is a natural-born talent! Most recently heard on the Tom Joyner Morning Show!
She has been making people laugh from the time she could talk. Being the baby of five children...no joke, her way of getting attention was to entertain and make her family laugh.
Carla is a proud graduate of Birmingham-Southern College. She worked over twenty-five years as a Professional Accountant, which includes fifteen years as a CPA. Many of her fans find this very hard to believe.
Never finding total satisfaction in the accounting profession, Carla decided to add REALTOR to her repertoire. In 2011, the Birmingham Association of REALTORS hosted a fundraiser titled "REALTOR's Got Talent". Carla jumped at the opportunity to do what she's always loved to do and that's to make others laugh; BUT from a "real" comedy stage underneath the bright lights in a room filled with over 400 people at Stardome Comedy Club. She performed her first set and never looked back. Carla began performing and winning open mic contests, talent competitions and gaining notice in Birmingham, AL because of her quick wit and in-your-face "clean" comedy. All of this led to Carla’s recent invitation to open for the stage play reading of “HOME” in Harlem, New York.
One of Carla’s greatest accomplishments is ALLA, Inc. ALLA, Inc. is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization where she is the Co-founder and CFO. ALLA, Inc.’s services include providing scholarships to young men graduating from high school; providing mentors to the recipients in order to assist with the transition to college life and “The Arts of ALLA” program.
In October 2015, Carla was diagnosed with breast cancer. She says “this situation just gave me more material and the desire for more stage time”. She uses her diagnosis to encourage others.
In October 2019, Carla released her debut book, Cancer Ain't Funny! Laugh Anyway...
Carla's goal is to make millions of people laugh...including you!
