Jerry Carroll

Jerry Carroll found comedy growing up on his family's farm in Willow Spring, NC. From the time he could walk, he joined his father and uncle to farm tobacco, corn, small grain, soybeans, cattle, and hogs. Spending 14 hours a day in a tractor cab gave Jerry plenty of time to think about his life's dream of making people laugh.

Jerry's hilarious story about a farm safety mishap was a hit at the local seed store and he finally decided to pursue his life's dream at the local comedy club. His seemingly effortless ability to spin out punch line after punch line, story after story, took him from emcee to headliner in just eight short months. Since beginning in 1993, Jerry has performed for crowds from 20 to 20,000 in venues ranging from the local volunteer fire department's banquet, to the Minister's of Provincial Parliament at the Royal York in Toronto, Canada. Everywhere he goes, he leaves audiences roaring with laughter.

Besides corporate meeting and events, conventions, countless associations, comedy clubs, and country clubs, Jerry has opened concerts for music artists such as Michael Bolton, Patty Loveless, Lyle Lovett, and Larry Gatlin. Jerry has performed from coast to coast in the U.S. and throughout Canada. He's even hosted two TV shows on the Sportsman Channel: Fishing for Laughs and Amazing America with Sarah Palin.

When he's not on the road making people laugh, Jerry still works the fields of his family's farm. This experience makes him one of the nation's most sought-after speakers for farmers and agribusiness events.

Georgia Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture

"This is the fourth year we have held our event and Jerry Carroll was by far the best entertainment to date! He kept our crowd of farmers and friends of agriculture rolling in laughter from start to finish. The President of our company told me I had hit a home run after he finished. We'd have him back every year if we could! Thank you, Jerry!"

Executive Director, Annual Gala (Macon, GA) 3/17/2018

Montana State University Extension

"As our event is not a huge event and does not draw thousands of people, it is hard to find good acts that will perform at our banquet. Jerry Carroll not only agreed to perform at our show, he came early, took much of the event in, and stayed late. Anything that was asked of him he did with enthusiasm. The crowd loved his act and the organizers loved his professionalism! We will definitely ask him to come back again."
