Carey Head is a writer, comedian, and filmmaker based in the Charlotte, North Carolina metro area. In 2013, as a break from the seriousness of his IT consulting business, he took a weekend improv course. This weekend hobby quickly evolved into a new full-time pursuit and he left his 18-year career in IT for more creative endeavors. By 2014, he joined the cast of Charlotte Comedy Theater and launched the Igno-Rants podcast. In 2015, Carey made his first foray into film with “Clocking Out”, an award-winning short produced for the Charlotte 48-Hour Film Project, plus several screenplays. His first short fiction, “The Prodigal”, was published in 2016. When not working on creative pursuits, Carey spends his time cooking, hunting, watching his beloved Crimson Tide, and homeschooling three boys.
I met Carey through Charlotte Comedy Theater where he was already an established player when I joined. Since meeting Carey, he has become an active member of the film community, even starting his own film group called Queens Miscreants. He gave me my first opportunity to act in a web series he directed called “Dick Kelly,” which should be released sometime in May. I’m really excited to sit down and talk to Carey Head about his past and future endeavors so listen LIVE directly from the website or listen and ask questions while using the Mixlr App.
