“Collins has mastered the art of blending sensitive gender and cultural sensibilities into honest, shrewd, and hilarious comedy.”

TORONTO, ON (July 26, 2016) - Comedian, actress, television host and best-selling author Carla Collins has recently launched a new web series, titled Carla Collins Comes Clean, produced by LA-based production company SHEnaniganz and directed by award-winning filmmaker, Thomas D. Moser. The wickedly hilarious first episode, titled “Korean Spa” was launched on July 21, with followup episodes scheduled every Thursday on Collins’ YouTube channel.
The single camera series, which features Collins speaking to camera in a bubble-filled bathtub, presents the comedian sharing personal stories in an uninhibited and no-holds-barred manner. Ranging from three to five minutes, each episode takes the viewers on a journey through the exciting and sometimes unbelievable mishaps Collins encounters regularly in her day-to-day life.
From hosting Canada’s highest rated entertainment show “eNow” to starring in her hit network television series, “Carlawood”, Collins has become a prominent and well respected figure in the Canadian entertainment scene. Carla’s first solo stand-up special, “The Wonder Bra Years”, aired on The Comedy Network, becoming one of the highest rated in the network’s Comedy Now series. Hailed as the “Queen of Comedy” and “Canada’s Tina Fey” by Canadian press, Carla can currently be seen as a celebrity panelist on Super Channel’s new comedy/variety series “Too Much Information” and is also a regular celebrity gossip and fashion commentator on Breakfast Television.
Since moving to Los Angeles, Collins was named “the funniest woman in comedy” by BeautyStyleWatch magazine and headlines clubs and theatres all over North America. She has become a staple in the stand-up community, performing at venues such as The Hollywood Improv, The Comedy Store, The Jon Lovitz Club and Flappers in LA. Carla has also been featured in Just for Laughs, the Los Angeles Comedy Festival, and the Vancouver Comedy Festival. Recently, Collins was awarded the prestigious Comedian Of The Year Award by the Southern California Motion Picture Council and is currently filming “The Last Laugh” a sitcom she created about performing stand-up at funerals.
Although based in Los Angeles, Carla frequently returns to Canada to perform stand-up shows in Ottawa and Toronto, Ontario; Calgary, Alberta; Vancouver, British Columbia; St. John’s, Newfoundland; Montreal, Quebec; and St. John, New Brunswick.
