A Carlin Home Companion: Growing up with George
Return Engagement of Kelly Carlin's Sold-Out Show!
Through storytelling, classic video footage, and family memorabilia, Kelly Carlin, the only child of iconoclastic comedian George Carlin, chronicles over 40 years of her life with her famous father. A 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.
Kelly 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 iconoclastic social commentator to the very last days of his life.
"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." - Garry Shandling
"Kelly Carlin's show is an unexpected experience of self realization that is moving, intelligent, funny and great theatre that can stand alone as just that. The fact that it revolves around her father, a beloved icon of comedy, is the icing on the cake." - Laraine Newman
"The one-woman play and creative brainchild of Kelly Carlin, only living heir to the George Carlin comedy empire, the show commanded such rapt attention of its audience that one might have thought the big man himself had dropped in for a posthumous performance." - Laughspin.com
