About The Event
Carl Strong has shared the stage with such Musical Legends as Gladys Knight, Chaka Kahn, Dionne Warwick, The Guess Who, and Smokey Robinson. His universal appeal is reflected in the varied spectrum of venues in which he has performed; from Cruise ships, to Concert Halls, Theatres, Arenas, Las Vegas Showrooms and Television programs. Carl has appeared on The BET Network, and Comedy Central; and on shows such as "An Evening at the Improv," to ABC’s "Politically Incorrect," "Full Frontal Comedy" and MTV's "Half Hour Comedy Hour," Carl Strong has the ability to entertain...everyone! Carl, a long-time resident of Osh Kosh, Wisconsin; grew up in Milwaukee, and graduated from the University of Wisconsin Whitewater with a Master's degree in Psychology. Carl then went on to pursue his dreams as a Professional stand-up comedian, and has been entertaining for over 30 years.
In 2010, Carl was diagnosed with CHF (Congestive Heart Failure). Initially, he underwent an ablation, cardioversion, placement of a pacemaker and internal defibrillator; all of which only helped for a short time. With his heart functioning only at 15%, Carl amazed his doctors by carrying on with his work, traveling across the country doing what he loves most, making people laugh with his unique brand of comedy. With his heart functioning continuing to deteriorate and the days on the waiting list for a heart transplant increasing, a benefit was held for Carl amidst a wave of prayers and support.
On May 8, 2013, Carl underwent a second major surgery, having his much-awaited transplant. Healthy and vital today; Carl feels he has been given the greatest blessing imaginable and is deeply motivated to share his comedic message of hope and inspiration.
