Making people laugh at what’s trivial while helping them think deeply about what counts
Bill Carr is known as a multi-media artist, an actor, humorist, writer, speaker and social activist. For over twenty-five years, Bill has been making people laugh at what’s trivial while helping them think deeply about what counts. Bill helps people see their world in new and exciting ways. His unique blend of humour and insight inspires laughter and consideration, offering his audience a fresh perspective on what they face everyday. At the root of all of Bill’s work is the use of humour to help people reflect on their own innate human nature and understand who they are in a greater social context.
Throughout his career, Bill has performed on theatrical stages across Canada and internationally. He continues to be active in film and television with a role in the 2017 Spike TV series “The Mist”, an upcoming principal role in “The Spinster” releasing in 2019 with Chelsea Perreti and as “Lloyd Dallas” in Neptune Theatre’s incoming production of “Noises Off” from February 26 to March 17 2019. Bill is the recipient of two Atlantic Journalism awards for his satirical commentaries and is known for his work as a social commentator with CBC’s The Journal and Midday, and a weekly columnist with The Sunday Edition of the Daily News and the Chronicle Herald. Bill was also the regular host of “Saturday Mornings with Bill Carr” with RogersFM. Bill has also authored his first book, Acting Up: Lessons from the Theatre of Life.
Bill is an active volunteer in his community. He is an honorary Trustee of the IWK Health Centre and appears annually on the IWK Children’s Hospital Telethon in partnership with CTV Atlantic. Bill also regularly serves as host & emcee for events in support of charitable causes and the arts such as Unicef, YMCA, Neptune Theatre, Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia, Symphony Nova Scotia, Hospice Halifax, Cumberland County Hospice Society, and Habitat For Humanity.
With the perfect blend of stand-up comedy and personal touching stories, Bill Carr delivers tremendous and applicable messages for business and life in general. His presentation set the perfect tone for our tradeshow weekend –- so much so that we have invited him to speak again

Hilarious, entertaining but more importantly, thought provoking. His insight on stress and how we react to it was bang on for the crowd at hand. Highly recommended!
