On today’s show we have the opening news segment then at about 34 Minutes its Kelly Carlin.
Whether Kelly Carlin is supporting women in finding their voices and essential selves, performing her personal essays to laughs and tears, revealing her take on the culture and psyche of modern life on her and others’ podcasts, or interviewing iconic comedians, she is dedicated to revealing unmined perspectives and asking the big questions about human life.
In 2015, her best-selling memoir, “A Carlin Home Companion: Growing up with George,” was published by St. Martin’s Press and her honesty, keen insight and humor was on full display. Jay Mohr summed up the power of her work by saying, “For anyone that has ever not been sure who they are, this book is for you. There is a landing spot. Let Kelly Carlin be your beacon.”
In the last eight years she toured her solo show internationally, produced the critically acclaimed Showtime show, “The Green Room with Paul Provenza,” created her popular podcast, “Waking from the American Dream,” and has interviewed dozens of iconic and popular comedians on her SiriusXM show, “The Kelly Carlin Show.” She has spoken at various venues and conferences, such as The Chautauqua Institute, Imagine No Religion conference, the Reason Rally, and Watermark and the Boston Ad Club. Through her public speaking and workshops she has inspired thousands of artists, business leaders, writers, and truth seekers to question the status quo within their lives and culture.
As the daughter of the iconoclast and legendary comedian George Carlin, she has not only taken up the torch of his legacy through her own writing and speaking, but by also releasing her father’s work through many media, protecting his work and image in the public sphere, and most recently, by donating his archives to the National Comedy Center in Jamestown, NY where they will be on permanent display when the center opens in August of 2018.
She proudly serves on the Board of Trustees for the Thomas Jefferson Center for the Protection of Free Expression, and the Board of Industry Advisors for the National Comedy Center.
