He is one of our most top-requested comedians and never fails to produce a great live comedy show!
In the sixth grade he told his mother that he wanted to be a stand up comic. His first performance was at an open mike night in Houston at the age of nineteen. That was the night he would meet another young aspiring comedian who was also performing for the first time Sam Kinison. Little did they know that their lives would be forever entwined together in the world of stand up comedy.

Carl and Sam ate, drank and slept comedy for the next seven years, moving from Houston to Los Angeles together and working at the world famous "Comedy Store" as doorman. Sam's big break came on Rodney Dangerfield's HBO Special. Sam Kinison soon became a comedy sensation and he and Carl joined forces. Carl became the special guest on all tours and collaborated on three albums and several specials. They formed the Outlaws of Comedy a brand of comedic outlaws both on and off the stage. The two lived every comics dream performing at rock clubs amphitheaters and sold out arenas for the next eight years.

The friendship and collaboration tragically ended in April 1992 when Sam and Carl were in route to a gig in Laughlin Nevada. Sam was injured in a car accent and shortly died, as he had lived, with his best friend Carl LaBove at his side.

After taking a year off to regroup, Carl's solo career came roaring back, with four appearances on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, The Dennis Miller Show. He was cast as a regular on Rosanne's late night comedy show, Saturday Night Special and guest stared on Seinfeld, Roseanne and The Parenthood. He was in the movies Ace Ventura, Jumping Jack Flash and Pauly Shore is Dead to name just a few. He performs regularly at the top comedy venues through out the world including Catch A Rising Star in Las Vegas and Reno. He participated in the feature film "Sam Kinison: Why did we Laugh" and has released two cd's called "I Used To Be An Outlaw: What Happened?" and DVD "Carl LaBove A night at the Frolic". We hope you enjoy this comedy video of Carl LaBove. If you ever get the chance to see him live run don't walk to see this comic legend perform the craft that he has taken to it's highest plain.
