Heather McDonald with Opener Jamie Ward - 5/5
at City Winery Nashville
- 9:30pm (Estimated End Time)
When Heather McDonald stood on stage in front of dozens at the 1992 Miss Tarzana pageant she assumed she had reached her peak. Little did she know, twenty-something, mostly sober, years later, Heather would be an in-demand, multi-faceted, comedian headlining sold out shows across the country.
In addition to stand-up, television guest spots and un-credited reality TV cameos, Heather can be heard twice a week on her hit podcast, Juicy Scoop with Heather McDonald, breaking down pop culture, her own personal drama and anything ‘juicy’ people are talking about that week. Guests range from Real Housewives to real listeners. Juicy Scoop with Heather McDonald averages over 1.3 million downloads a month and has over five thousand, five (5) star reviews on ITunes.
Heather wrote best sellers, You’ll Never Blue Ball in this Town Again and MY INAPPROPRIATE LIFE: Some Material Not Suitable for Small Children, Nuns, or Mature Adults.
In 2015 she debuted her Showtime special, I Don’t Mean To Brag, which later aired on Netflix. For seven years Heather wrote, produced and appeared on Chelsea Lately as well as it’s spin off show, After Lately. Heather was a contributing writer on the Wayans’ Brothers films, White Chicks and Dance Flick.
Her column, “What Heather McDonald Noticed This Week” can be read each week in InTouch magazine.
My comedy journey started in 2009 when I returned to the US from Afghanistan. I had just gotten off of Active Duty and I was looking to reintegrate into society. Naturally I was drawn to a life of living on the road and meeting new people, but my foray into professional dance was short lived, so I tried stand-up comedy instead.
What can I say, it’s been a whirlwind adventure so far. I’ve performed all across the country and in 2016 I had the opportunity to perform in the Bahamas and for The US Marine basis in Korea (the good one) and Japan. My mix of fast-paced jokes and high energy stories about my life have given me the opportunity to perform on national TV and radio. I was featured on the TV show Laughs on FOX and my comedy can be heard on XM/Sirius Satellite Radio.
In addition to comedy clubs, colleges and festivals around the country, I work with my own comedy group of all military veteran comedians called The GI Jokers. We run shows to raise money for veteran causes and charities.
