With her irreverence, honesty and keen insight, Kelly Carlin is always looking to answer the big questions of life. Whether she’s openly sharing her inner life, or conversing with artists, comedians, and thinkers to discover the truth behind all the white noise, she is just trying to help us all stay a little more sane in the 21st century. While openly wrestling with her own thoughts and feelings about her art, world politics, and spirituality, Kelly, the daughter of George Carlin, remains genuinely curious about how others find meaning and success in their own post-modern American life.

Love her!

Great show I've been waiting for on iTunes

So glad your show is now on iTunes Kelly! Now I can listen to your show much more easily while I'm on the way to another night of self flagellation at the club!

Keep them coming!

Entertaining, thought-provoking, intelligent.

Kelly Carlin is at the top of the short-list of entertainers/producers/writers who has proven that she is capable of so much more than people realize. Her interviews are not only intelligent and entertaining but are also thought-provoking in a very different way. After listening to several of her broadcasts I realized that although she seems to have certain strong political and sociological beliefs, she is not cemented to them. She is an open-minded person who is willing to really talk and DISCUSS...ideas and perspectives that she may not be familiar with. So many entertainers and interviewers bring so much of their own baggage to a discussion that it becomes more of a diatribe than anything else and Kelly does not fall into that trap. It's very refreshing to hear a truly open conversation where nothing is taboo and there is no personal judgements handed down. Furthermore, Kelly is not pounding her own viewpoints on to her fans. I came away with my own personality still intact rather than feeling like I had hers grafted on to me. And yes, she is George Carlin's daughter, but that is truly secondary to her own sense of self and her own comedic talents. If anything, she is publically saying that he's her dad and she's still struggling to come to terms with what that means to others, her dad's fans, and herself. I see her show as Kelly trying to claw, stratch, and clamor to wake from her own American Dream. Oh, and her guests are great too. Lol.
