More about Judy:

Interviewed by Oprah Winfrey after writing her first book, “Standup Comedy: The Book,” Judy Carter went from playing Vegas as a headlining standup comic to becoming an in-demand corporate speaker. Speaking on The Power of Purpose to overcome stress and navigate change, she was featured in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times and CNN, as well as a frequent contributor to NPR’s “All Things Considered.”

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 “The Message of You” (St. Martin’s Press). She will be signing copies of her latest book, “The Comedy Bible: The New Testament”.

You can’t afford to miss this GREAT Event, but you must RSVP to attend, as space is limited.
