Welcome to Carrie Gravenson's website. It will make you laugh. It will make you cry. It will make you laugh again. You seem emotionally unstable.

Write my autobiography? By Saturday?

I've been asked to bring a "headshot and bio" to my next gig. This is an exciting prospect. I spent a hefty penny on my headshots and I'm excited to possibly hand one to someone. The bio, however, is a little perplexing.

How does this go exactly? Can it be funny? My instinct is to make it funny since I'm branding myself as a funny person -- funny enough to make you rich if you play your cards right, sir. But somehow, I don't feel like it should be funny. So, a serious bio about my experience as a comedian? Where do I start? I've been unbelievably balls-to-the-floor hilarious for my whole life. How do I fit a lifetime of hilarity on the back of a headshot? And if I write modestly, someone might think that I haven't been funny enough. Do I write it in acting resume format? Do I put my measurements? Do I list my many special talents? (Very steady hands, certified scuba diver, can hypnotize a horse in under 12 seconds, etc.) This is quite a pickle.

I think you should come see me at The Laugh Lounge on Saturday, June 7th. That's what I think.

Laugh Lounge
151 Essex Street (bet. Stanton & Rivington)
$12 + 2 drinks

I think I should get a new hair dryer by then. That's also what I think.

Finally, some proof.

The most played out joke ever.
