Since he could remember, Carl Rimi has been entertaining and controlling an audience; whether it be just in front of a group of women, on stage, on the big screen, behind the scenes or even when he was growing up, as long as there is a crowd, Carl will be the center of it. Since the age of twenty four, he has taken his gift of improvisation and humor to a higher level, performing at clubs and venues all over the U.S. and on several major cruise lines for over 19 years. Carl has entertained in many major clubs and colleges across the country and is a regular at all three world famous Improv comedy clubs in South Florida. He has also appeared live at the 2011 Las Vegas comedy festival and the 2013 South Beach Comedy festival. Carl’s ability to deliver intellectual humor and physical comedy in a fast-paced “wham, bam thank you ma’am” style helps turn the mundane into the insane. Carl’s amazing energy and his ability to read an audience are his greatest strengths and have made him one of the most sought after comics on the circuit today.
Mr. Rimi has done several television shows and independent movies. His credits include Comedy Central’s Laugh Riots, NBC, CBS, ABC Family and the hit television series Burn Notice. He also starred in the Independent Christian film, Bonk, in which he was nominated for a Best Actor Award. Carl has several feature films that will be released in 2016 including Love and Hostages, a romantic comedy, by David Vargas and Javier Mayol, Adopted, a drama/horror film by Adrian Jules, and Smothered by Mothers, another up and coming comedy directed by Brian Herzlinger, written and produced by Kurt Weichert. This past season Carl worked on several projects including Sehnsucht,, a short fantasy drama that shows people’s deepest desires by Naqi Khawer and Before I Come Back, a dramatic short tragedy by Zhen Zhen Ma.
Carl is currently working on Henri, a feature film along with Eric Roberts and Robert LaSardo and is gearing up to shoot two new features in Chicago – “Sportsfan Chronicles” and “Sports and Riches”. He is also shooting GymBrats 2.0, a web series about wannabe actors who like to pass the time hanging out at their local gym. The show was created, produced and directed by Mr. Rimi and Ms. Stacey Steele .
