by Kelly Carlin
Through storytelling, classic video footage, and family memorabilia, Kelly Carlin, the only child of iconoclastic comedian George Carlin, chronicles over forty years of her life with her famous father. Kelly, host of Waking from the American Dream podcast, author, and well respected storyteller, reveals what it was like to be swept up into the life and career of her father from his early days as a straight comic through his transformation into a counter culture hero and social commentator to the very last days of his life. Join us for this funny, poignant and honest look at the man who not only redefined 20th century comedy, but inspired generations of comedy fans with such classic routines as Hippie Dippie Weatherman, Class Clown, The Seven Dirty Words, A Place for Your Stuff, and Modern Man.
"The journey to womanhood by a girl who happens to be George Carlin's daughter makes for a transcendent show that operates on all levels. It's revealing, moving, highly insightful and funny. Master George might have said: 'Maybe she's a little too damn honest.' But, all I know is, it's a wonder to see."
