Comedian Carrie Gravenson stopped by the International Cinematographers Guild Local #600 New York office in June to tell Cinematic Immunity her story of being an up-and-coming stand-up comic, touring North America and living in NYC.
Carrie, a native New Yorker from Sunnyside, Queens - just like 33% of the Cinematic Immunity team - co-produces The Tomfoolery Hour, a popular monthly comedy showcase in New York City, and can be found traveling the country with the Pink Collar Comedy Tour, which has performed in over 40 cities across North America and was recently featured on CW San Diego 6.
In addition to being a professional stand-up comedian, Carrie Gravenson is also an actress, known for American Bomber (2013), Is This Thing On? (2010) and The Candy Flip (2011). In 2009, she won the New York Underground Comedy Festival’s Emerging Talent Stand-Up Competition, and was a runner up in the Catch a Rising Star Stand-Up Competition the same year. She was also a semifinalist in the Ventura Comedy Competition and the She Devil Comedy Contest in 2012.
