CARLIE & DONI Hit the Road

“L.A.’s BEST comedians” exclaims LA Magazine. “The pair regales audiences with original tunes and sketches about gangsta waitresses, bikini waxes and the art of stiffing hobos. With or without the bikini wax, they’re a scream!” raves LA WEEKLY of Carlie and Doni, the irreverent musical/comedy duo whose show, “Lily Tomlin and Jane Wagner present Carlie and Doni help Save the Playhouse” played to a sell-out crowd at Santa Monica Playhouse in 2011. Now they back by popular demand, detouring from their sell-out college tour for one night only with an all-new musical comedy exxxtravaganza! Rated R for strong language. CARLIE Mantilla & DONI Carley are two best friends who met in 2005 at Los Angeles Community College Theater Academy. They quickly realized it wasn’t for them and dropped out. Carlie moved in with Doni and they decided to form a musical/comedy act, writing silly songs and sketches on their own time. One day in 2007, Carlie’s mom convinced Carlie to sign them up for an open mic at the Comedy Store. They weren’t sure how their straight girl/lesbian musical duo would go over. It went better than they expected. Over the last five years they have developed that seven-minute audition into a one-hour comedy musical/comedy extravaganza. Carlie & Doni recently performed at The Comedy Festival in San Francisco. They are regulars at Jon Lovitz Comedy Club, were the Headline attractions at The Improv, and created their first commercial for Toyota, writing and performing a song they wrote called “My First Ride.” Carlie & Doni also wrote the titular song and appear as troubadours in the comedy film, “When Harry Tries to Marry.” Carlie & Doni have a strong following among many of their peers including the preeminent comedian, Lily Tomlin. Produced by Your Mom’s Production and Rocco Urbusci.
