Judy Carter

Comedy Keynotes: Big Laughs, Big Message

Speaker and author Judy Carter discovered at an early age that the messes in her life were great comedy material. She mined her stories into a standup comedy career performing on over 100 TV Shows, writing books such as The Comedy Bible and The Message of You that were endorsed by Oprah Winfrey, writing speeches for TED Talks, US Senators and CEOs, and as a keynote speaker, as well as sharing the platform with former US President Bill Clinton.

Judy’s message of using humor as a transformational tool led to her being featured in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, The Oprah Winfrey Show, CNN, as well as being a frequent contributor to National Public Radio’s “All Things Considered” and a weekly blogger for Psychology Today and Entrepreneur Magazine.

Currently, Judy is an international keynote speaker, speaking coach, and workshop leader on the power of personal stories and humor to inspire others and decrease workplace stress. Her “wake-them-up” keynotes have thrilled attendees at many Fortune 500 companies including Fedex, Oracle, Disney, Boeing, as well as hundreds of finance, healthcare and women’s events.

As an author, 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, Standup Comedy: The Book (Dell Books). Judy’s book, The Message of You: Turn Your Life Story into a Money-Making Speaking Career (St. Martin’s Press), teaches readers how to become her competition.

In her latest book, The Message of You (St. Martin’s Press), she teaches  readers to find the extraordinary stories tucked deep within them to make a difference in the lives of others

Judy lives in Venice Beach, CA with her dogs and 6-toed cats who allow her to live with them as long as she feeds everybody.

Stress IS a Laughing Matter: A Counter-intuitive Approach to Stress Management

Life and work are stressful – overwhelming deadlines, stacks of paperwork, communication breakdowns… and that’s just Monday.

Judy illustrates the power of stories and humor and teaches us how to turn problems into punch lines, resolve conflict and build camaraderie so everyone will walk away with tools they can use immediately.

Her “Don’t get mad, get funny” philosophy inspires people to deal with issues such as change, new technology, work-life balance, and burnout — not to mention that overflowing inbox — with a sense of humor, rather than a sense of desperation.Takeaways:

  • Utilize gratitude appreciation & secure a permanent sense of well-being
  • Use humor to turn conflict into camaraderie
  • How to joke appropriately

Getting What You Want Before You Forget What It Is

Are you an expert in giving others what they want — your boss, your kids, your spouse — and still waiting for someone to ask you what you want?

Do you still believe that someone will come into your life and give you what you want even though you don’t have a clue to what that is?

Do you scale down what you want because you think that’s all you can achieve?
Do you just have a sliver of cake in public and only eat exactly what you want when no one’s looking?

Join Judy for an hour of sidesplitting humor where you just might learn how to get exactly what you want.

Judy Carter is that rare speaker who is laugh-out-loud funny yet has a thought-provoking message that resonates with everyone who hears it.

As she says, “How can women know what we want – when the only one asking us is the waiter?”

Audiences love her insights about patty-cake (yes, patty-cake), about the differences between men and women, and why anyone (yes, anyone) can get what they want if they just start doing something differently starting today . . . . not someday.
