I grew up in Lawrence Mass, to a pipe fitter father and stay at home mom. My parents went to the prom and then I attended their graduation. Our family soon grew to 5 children and I was ignored. I loved to make people laugh from as long as I can remember. Blah Blah Blah....I won't bore you but I have worked in 4 comedy clubs, put over 300,00 miles on my car as a road comic. I worked at Cartoon Network, with professional Wrestlers and was an assistant to over 30 VicePresidents at Turner Broadcasting.(maybe 20? but 30 sounds better).
I won American Funniest video, had a morning radio show that was nominated for a CMA award. I was a Flight Attendant. I have attended every comedy festival all over the planet. Yeah Planet. I had been on hiatus from comedy when in 2010 my 15 year marriage ended in divorce. I scratched the old act and started my standup comedy over writing a whole new act. This time around I worked on being less jokey and more honest and vulnerable on stage. I recently opened for the amazing Hal Sparks in Las Vegas and was invited to the 4th Annual Women in Comedy Festival in Cambridge Mass.
Since moving to LA I have been on 2 Seasons of CBS's Rules of Engagement, Disney's Jesse, Disney XD's new show LabRats and Mike and Molly. I am so blessed to be doing what I love. My dream is to get my own sitcom call it "It's not the Charlene Show" and live happily ever after...Yeah I said it my own sitcom. Oh and I want to be on Sesame Street...working with Grover. I want to sing with Grover..
