Carter Edwards Show

Home > Artists

Years ago Carter decided that he didn’t want to be “just another singer”.

Carter holds his audience with a raucous and typically Australian humour that involves the audience all the way, with songs, funny stories, and original gimmicks. Carters onstage magic is his ability to entertain and have fun with an audience, just to “make ‘em feel good!”

Carter Edwards started his show biz career playing drums as a teenager; started singing when the band singer lost his voice. He won Perths New Faces and later introduced comedy into his act. Australia saw him play drums on the back of a truck from Perth to Sydney non-stop. The Taubman’s Paint commercial he starred in won a Clio Award in New York, as the best TV commercial in the world. His Taubman’s Paint contract ran for 9 years on Australian TV.

He won consecutive Mo Awards for The Most Versatile Entertainer in Australia and he was nominated (5 times) consecutively, as Australia’s Entertainer of the Year. He was a regular guest star on T.V.New Zealand’s “That’s Country”. With a reputed regular American audience of 20 million viewers on cable TV every Sunday for 7 years. From that show he wrote and starred in a New Zealand TV Special called “CER” that rated 1.5 million viewers. In 1980 he was invited to perform in a Royal Command Performance at the Sydney Opera House.

He wrote and starred in the “Stepping Out Theatre Restaurant” show that was awarded best NSW theatre show for 2 consecutive years. Over the years he’s done many corporate shows as a performer, staff trainer and motivational speaker.

He started on Radio 2HD Newcastle in 1989 with “Carter Edwards Country” which dominated the ratings for 20 years. He was later inducted into the Australian Country Music Broadcasters Hall Of Fame. Since then his radio career has moved into top gear with “The Carter Edwards Show”, broadcast around the Super Radio Network Saturday and Sunday evenings from 6 pm until midnight, featuring music and talkback. In his first year the ratings went from 14% of the listening audience to 66%.

Carter regularly holds seminars for youngsters who want to know…”How To Be Successful In Show Business”. Carter and his business partner Wayne Sampey have recently signed a major publishing contract for 6 books to be released internationally.

Possibly the most amazing single factor in the sparkling success story of this incredibly versatile entertainer is that he never really intended a career in show business! So far Carter Edwards has done well over 9,000 live shows in the years he has been a performer, and he’s still in constant demand, working better than ever and  going from strength to strength!
