Best Magazine did an exclusive interview on my adoption story and adoption work to celebrate UK National Adoption Week. 'If there is one thing I have learned; Adoption can open your heart to places that you would never, ever believe exist in your soul. Adoption has a wealth all of it's own, beyond measure'

Last month I was in Best Magazine and on Boom Radio with David Lloyd talking about The Adoption Arena Podcast.

It has been amazing to be featured in Good Housekeeping in the March edition discussing the importance of adoption especially in today's war torn world.  I love to combine some comedy with inspirational speaking engagements for talks and conferences, so why not drop me a line I would love to hear about your event and discuss doing a show/talk CONTACT

 

In May and June I'm doing a series of high profile speaking engagements with my current seminars/talks watch out for more dates to be added:

 

Diversity and Difference 

Beyond Black Lives Matter  

And just before Christmas I hosted a wonderful film screening at Bafta for the film '100 years from Mississippi' with film maker and executive producer Tarabu Betserai Kirkland and Barry Shabaka Henley in LA (live link up) 

So Brilliant’ Jo Brand. Comedian

'Joy mines a rich seam of gold in her hilarious stand up material' Lemn Sissay OBE 

Poet, author, broadcaster

'Warmed and wowed me' Arthur Smith'

'Joy Carter is an absolute Joy!'

'Rob Parsons, Care for the Family  Founder/chairman

‘Her warmth, passion and incredibly high energy levels captured the audience’s imagination’

‘Her comic style certainly makes her one to watch out for’ Daily Mail

 

I'm still working on my comedy sitcom and my adoption advocacy work continues at AdoptionArena.com. Look out for some more comedy show dates coming soon!

 

Comedy style: sharp line delivery, observations and personal straight from the heart story-telling comedic obscurities.

 

Career highlights include: Being nominated for an EMMA Award (*Ethnic multicultural media award) in 2008, performing at the London Hilton with Claudia Winkleman for the London Beauty Awards and being featured in Steve Best’s book featuring top current UK Comedians. I've enjoyed many years on the UK comedy circuit, working in broadcasting and as a writer.  

Covid has seen me perform on zoom to exciting new audiences as well and I'm looking forward now to performing again at comedy festivals, conferences, news events, universities and churches with Christians in Comedy.

Acting

 

My love for acting was founded aged 16 when I joined the National Youth Theatre of Great Britain, I went onto study at Wimbledon School of Art as a Theatre designer before doing many courses in theatre, acting and dance.

 

I have had parts in Deep State 2, The Beast (London Film School) and a commercial for Hilary Blinds to name a few.

Comedy

I have enjoyed performing stand up at UK festivals, conferences, after dinner speaking engagements, business meetings, charity events, award ceremonies and of course around the UK comedy circuit. I have over 15 years of professional experience and I'm planning a new comedy stand-up tour for later 2021-22

 

I have had the pleasure of performing at the London Hilton with Claudia Winkleman, Tate Britain for the Young Achievers Award for Westminster City Council, RBS Bank, Bond Dickinson, Metropolitan Police, Diocese of Leicester and many universities such as Nottingham Trent, Preston, Goldsmiths and Grimsby to name a few. 

 

Current Affairs and Adoption Advocacy

 

Social commentary work is important to me along with most comedians, I cover race, women's and adoption stories in the news especially, along with fun stories about dogs etc! I've worked on the Nick Ferrari Show, LBC with Iain Dale, BBC Radio London 94.9FM with Eddie Nestor and BBC World Service to name a few. 

Government organisation Cafcass have asked me to speak at their Black History Month seminar about my experiences - 'Transracial Adoption - a personal reflection' where I will be discussing my journey, transracial adoption then and the journey ahead. Truly, it's a great honour.

 

Last year I was commissioned to write and present the poem featured for the National #YouCanAdopt Campaign and present a special podcast earlier this year interviewing young female adoptees about their experiences. watch a link media page or see below for a selection of my favourite interviews.

I joined a panel on the BBC Africa's Podcast 'The Comb' with Kim Chakanetsa discussing overseas adoption, complexity and my story
