Why Judy Carter

  • “Inspiring Leadership Keynote with Humor 20% message + 80% entertainment = 100% uplifting Break away from traditional leadership speakers to learn from a TEDx speaker and former stand-up comic on HOW TO USE STORIES AS A LEADERSHIP TOOL. Judy’s innovative message based on her new book, “The Message of You” (St. Martin’s Press), teaches your team insightful communication skills while she entertains.”
  • “A Different Approach to Stress Management Discover a counterintuitive approach to stress management brought to you by a very funny lady who will keep everyone laughing as they learn how humor is their missing piece to communication excellence and stress management.”
  • “Judy’s talks are all customized. Nothing canned. All of Judy’s keynotes are customized to your specific business or industry. Judy will work closely with you, gathering your facts, challenges, goals, plus even your acronyms! There’s no doubt about it. If you’re looking for humor with an on-target message that your people will take back to work (and then put to work!), you’ll love Judy Carter.”

Judy Carter has shared stages with President Bill Clinton, Deepak Chopra and Lily Tomlin. She’s in demand by corporations from Boeing to Blue Cross, Fed-ex to Farmer’s Insurance. As an international speaker, Judy Carter has taken her fun and profound address from Australia to Berlin, Canada to Hong Kong, demonstrating proven methods of transforming oneself through humor and teaching audiences how to take a different view of stressful and difficult events in life.

“You’re not in a difficult marriage — it’s comedy material,” she quips. “You don’t have the boss from hell — it’s a heckler. Your son wasn’t arrested on the TV show ‘Cops’ — you have a relative in show business.”

A graduate of USC’s theater program, Judy Carter was the first woman to play the Close-Up Gallery at Hollywood’s Magic Castle. Author of The Comedy Bible and Standup Comedy, she’s been featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show, taught workshops for stand-up comics, has worked with CEOs on their presentations, and developed a popular series of instructional DVDs.

More About Judy Carter . . . 
Honing her comedy skills on stages from Caesar’s Palace to the Los Angeles Improv, Judy Carter was nominated for Atlantic City’s “Entertainer of the Year.” She brought her talent to the motivational speaking circuit, believing that her techniques could benefit even those who would never even think of stepping on a stage.

“I wanted to do more than make people laugh, I wanted to transform and inspire with a message they could take home.”

Judy Carter is a living example of the power of laughter. Like many funny people, she grew up in a dysfunctional family. When her mother said it would take a miracle for her disabled sister to walk, young Judy Carter obsessed over learning magic. “The biggest disappointment was I couldn’t get her out of her wheelchair. But I could pull a coin out of her ear and make her laugh.”

Bitten by the performing bug and realizing that she had a choice, to view life as a tragedy or as a comedy, Judy Carter chose humor.

“To me, comedy is not about putting other people down, it’s really about turning our problems into punch lines,” Carter says. “It’s just more fun to laugh–and I think it burns more calories. Anyone who comes to my show will lighten up and probably at the end of my talk — lose five pounds!”

Judy Carter and her spouse live in Venice Beach, California with permission from their cats and dogs.

Testimonials 3

  • “Our original goal was to provide a motivational meeting for our employees that allowed them to receive a focused message on managing change without feeling like they were being preached to! Your keynote address was perfect. It allowed us to laugh at ourselves and our processes and still be able to understand that we have to be flexible to survive in today’s world.”

    Judy B. Watters

    Manager, Business Planning, FedEx

  • “Your keynote address at our Spring Hospital Summit, Contact: One Patient at a Time, was a huge hit. You did an amazing job personalizing your talk to meet our audience’s needs. The address was motivating and very uplifting and helped set the tone for the entire meeting. The nurse care managers, supervisors and administrators present at the Summit had overwhelming positive comments on your talk. You have an amazing talent to bring levity and humor to some serious topics and would be an asset to any business function.”

    Lisa M. Casasanta

    Senior Project Manager, State Initiatives

  • “You were a hit! So many people came up to me and said that it was really a good choice to have someone with comedy background kick off our meeting. It’s not easy getting our group laughing at 9am, but you got them right at the start when you poked fun of our acronyms.Most of our group were directors from different countries and you really took the time to customize your speech, making sure everyone got it – even our reps from China.”
