About Carl Hurley

Carl Hurley Biography

Carl Hurley or Carl Hurley, Ed.D. is a former Eastern Kentucky University professor, and nationally recognized Lexington, Kentucky comedian and lecturer. In his early career, he was often billed as Americas funniest professor. Hurley is a common entertainer for local events, and is often heard several times daily nationwide on XM Radios Channel 151, Laugh USA, and Sirius Satellite Radios Channel 103, Blue Collar Comedy. Hurley is the Author of We Werent Poor--We Just Didnt Have Any Money, and his entertainment has also been featured in video format.

Hurley was born in 1941 in a log cabin in the Appalachian foothills of Laurel County, Kentucky. Hurley is famously from East Bernstadt, Kentucky, route one. In early life, he enjoyed family members richly embellished tales, and the Grand Ole Opry radio comedians Minnie Pearl and Rod Brasfield. Heading off to Eastern Kentucky University, Hurley worked his way to a M.A. in education in 1966. In 1971 he was awarded a doctorate in education from the University of Missouri in Columbia, Missouri. Returning to EKU as a professor and coordinator, in 1971 his next career started when he decided to liven up a boring school conference. Invitations to speak elsewhere followed, and in 1982, Hurley left EKU to speak and entertain full-time.

Hurley displays a trademark story-telling style considered similar by some to American humorists such as Andy Griffith and Garrison Keillor, combining a down-home yarn-spinning style with public comedy. His early work often displayed an impish giggle throughout his routines, which later vanished.
