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.

Spencer Chamber of Commerce

Chamber Speakers and Entertainers in Spencer, IA

"Wow -- where to start? Jerry Carroll met and exceeded my expectations. He was very easy to work with and very thoughtful. Jerry attended the Vendor Reception on Monday night - networking with the vendors and getting to know our committee and the surrounding area. On Tuesday, Jerry arrived early at the venue and walked around networking with the vendors; meeting the public and attending the speaker before Jerry - Iowa Agriculture Secretary, Bill Northey. Everyone I have talked to that attended Jerry Carroll's presentation have told me nothing but great things about his presentation. Jerry staying up on what is happening in Agriculture and Business in other parts of the US - and not just his home state is what impressed me. He very much so has his homework done to relate to his audience. Jerry also dressed correctly - he did not try to out dress the audience. Jerry's audience was farmers and farm related business people mainly and he dressed to relate to them - this was wonderful! After Jerry's presentation and before he left I was very touched that he came to find me to thank me and give me a hug. I would recommend Jerry to anyone."

"Jerry Carroll did a wonderful job at our Agri-Business Banquet! He was there well in advance to make sure everything was setup and the stage/audio-visual was to his liking. He had a message that resonated with a conservative, but diverse audience. Making a crowd of 550 have a great time is no easy task! Thank you so much."

The crowd responded VERY well to him and the Title Sponsor of the event is asking for a revisit from him in a couple of years. All around just a terrific person and performer. Can't thank you enough."

Billings Chamber of Commerce

"Jerry Carroll was fantastic. Typically each year about 1/4 of the audience would leave as the entertainment took the stage. That did not happen this year. Everyone stayed the entire hour he performed. I have heard numerous comments on what a great job he did. Jerry was also very socialable prior to the show with our group and stayed around after to talk to our guests as well. We had just over 800 people in attendance and Jerry really helped make this a speacial event."
