One in a family of 11, Casey Carle grew up in the rural farm lands of Greene, NY, on a single lane, dead-end, dirt road...so clearly needed to stand out in some way! Fortunately he chose a positive route... graduating cum laude from S.U.N.Y. Geneseo with a "Bachelor of Arts" in Drama and also from The Ringling Bros. Clown College with "Bachelor of Fun Arts" (for real!). Casey has worked almost entirely on and off stage his entire adult life. He's quite comfortable in the spotlight.

As in his formative years, he continues to enjoy the rural home life, only now on a single lane, dirt road in East Haddam, CT (with a bubbling brook in the backyard ) along his wife, Kandie, who performs her successful solo-person show "Victorian Lady: Dressing From Corset to Gloves".
