Heather McDonald is one of the most in-demand and multi-faceted comedians today, who not only juggles a career as a nationally touring stand-up, actress, and accomplished writer, but is also a devoted wife and mother…when the rest of her family isn’t driving her up the wall.
Currently, Heather can be heard weekly on her sensational new podcast “Juicy Scoop” on PodcastOne. Every week, Heather holds nothing back and gets the most surprising, scandalous, and intimate scoops from her celebrity guests. Heather has a hilarious way of delving into celebrity gossip, fancying herself a tabloid detective where if she can’t find the truth she’ll make it up herself.
As a stand-up comedian, McDonald continues to perform for enthusiastic fans all over the country. She opened for all 4 of Chelsea Handler’s sold out tours throughout the country from Carnegie Hall to Arenas up to 10,000.
In 2016 she just debuted her first Showtime special ‘I Don’t Mean To Brag,’ which achieved record ratings on the network and is currently streaming on Netflix. She gained a throng of loyal fans as a staff writer and for her regular roundtable appearances on E!’s top rated show ‘Chelsea Lately’. She also starred in After Lately, a mockumentary series on E! for 3 successful seasons.
As an author, Heather’s debut book (released June 2010), You’ll Never Blue Ball in this Town Again, spent seven weeks on the New York Times best-seller list, and climbed to the #1 position on Amazon’s “Bestsellers in Entertainment” list. McDonald released her follow up to Blue Balls in February 2013 titled MY INAPPROPRIATE LIFE: Some Material Not Suitable for Small Children, Nuns, or Mature Adults which also became a national bestseller. My Inappropriate Life is an irreverent account of McDonald’s attempts to balance fame with family time, all while doing it her way. Heather’s writing has also been featured in Redbook Magazine, Reader’s Digest, The Hollywood Reporter and she has contributed to New York Magazine’s Vulture.
