After rigorous comedy classes and seemingly endless nights and weeks and months of unpaid open mic performances, Donna landed her first paid gig in August, 1998, and from that point on, it’s been on!
In March of 2002, Donna made the leap of faith (or insanity, depending on your point of view), and went full-time as a comic. Since then she has been entertaining virtually every week at clubs all over the country, and in September 2002, was given an opportunity to have her standup filmed for a documentary to be released within a few months.
Most folk would be afraid to start something as bold as comedy at the age of 40, let alone begin a new career at 44. Most (especially Donna’s mother) think she’s crazy.
Ms. Carters career is on the rise! Her new Live CD entitled, “Fat Girls Don’t Wrinkle” is on sale now at her live performances and in the Yardsale tab on her website. Listen for selected CD tracks on Sirius XM Satellite Radio.
In 2012, Donna’s taped her first comedy feature for Comcast starring in XFINITY’s On Demand Stand-Up Comedy Series, Who’s Laughing Now! The show benefited the USO of Indiana and was taped in Indianapolis at the Indiana War Memorial. Look for the Who’s Laughing Now All-Star tour kicking off in June of 2013 at the Royal Theater in Danville, Indiana.
