Birth Name




Carla Collins is an award winning Canadian actress and comedian. She is also a television and radio host.

Collins pursued her education at the Université de Franche-Comté in France and the University of Western Ontario. She joined The Weather Network in 1990 as an on-air host, and subsequently moved to CFTO to host Eye on Toronto. In 1995, she began hosting CTV's Entertainment Now. She also hosted the Canadian variety series Sonic Temple and the sketch comedy series Chez Carla. She had her first solo stand-up special, The Wonder Bra Years, on The Comedy Network in 2001.

She was also a morning radio personality on Toronto's Mix 99.9 from 1992 to 1994, co-hosting with Tom Rivers along with Larry Fedoruk. Rivers left in 1993 and Fedoruk and Collins continued as a duo. She returned from 2001 to 2003. For that stint, following a short period co-hosting with Steve Anthony, who then moved to afternoon drive time, Collins became the first woman in Canada to be billed as the sole regular host of a morning radio show on a commercial station in a major media market as opposed to co-hosting with one or more men.

During 2001 she appeared in the role of Rusty Sinclair on Paradise Falls, a soap opera on Showcase Television.

2004 Carla put together her one woman show entitled "The Visionary Position"

In 2006 Carla teams up with producer Frank Sicoli for a hilarious one-of-a-kind, unscripted sitcom titled "The Visionary Position". This TV series is being described as Curb Your Enthusiasm meets Sex and the City meets Bewitched. Collins says, "I prefer to think of it as The Ghost Whisperer on crack."
