In 2017, Pink Collar Comedy Tour changed its name to CAKE Comedy (Carrie represents the "C" in CAKE) and did a 10-city tour in the Spring.

She recorded her debut album in the autumn of 2017 and is expected to release it later this year.
Carrie Gravenson was born on a small island on the east coast of The United States of America. Maybe you've heard of this small island for it is called... "Manhattan." Ha! We never think of Manhattan as an island but it so totally is. And I was born on it. And I'm all touchy about Queens and Brooklyn technically sharing an island landmass with Long Island. Now I'm all upset thinking about it and I need a break to take stock of my life.
Okay, I'm back. Anyway, I grew up and started doing comedy.
