 Doesn’t Anyone Know What A Pancreas Is?

Carole Real Biography

A California native and a graduate of Yale University, Carole began her professional writing career in New York, when Joan Rivers responded to her cold submission by buying three of her jokes. She was soon writing sketch comedy that was performed in clubs and cabarets all over town, including Lewis Black’s legendary West Bank Downstairs Theatre Bar.  
Carole has written several one acts, including Why the Beach Boys are Like Opera, and The Battle of Bull Run Always Makes Me Cry, which has been anthologized, included in two textbooks and performed throughout the United States, Canada and Asia. Her one act, Don’t Say Another Word, was included in 2009’s Summer Shorts 3 Festival of One Act Plays at 59E59th Street in Manhattan. Doesn’t Anyone Know What A Pancreas Is? Carole’s full-length play based on the characters in Don’t Say Another Word received a world premiere production at Ensemble Studio Theatre LA. Her full-length play We Used to Be Fun earned semi-finalist status at the O’Neill Center’s National Playwrights Conference and has had readings at The Blank Theatre in Los Angeles and Ensemble Studio Theatre in New York, and a workshop production at Ensemble Studio Theatre-LA.
A member of the Dramatists Guild and the WGA, Carole has written for network primetime shows on ABC, CBS and Fox.
