Whether she’s talking on her own podcast, “Waking from the American Dream,” performing her solo show about her life and family, or interviewing today’s top comics on her SiriusXM show, “The Kelly Carlin Show,” Kelly pursues the big questions, and reveals unmined perspectives that opens minds and hearts. Her personal stories, pathos, and beautifully articulated psychological insight reveal what it takes to live the authentic life.
Most recently she’s done that in her highly acclaimed memoir, published by St. Martin’s Press in September 2015, “A Carlin Home Companion: Growing up with George,”
Kelly speaks in front of organizations, companies and non-profits. You’ll find her calling forth women to become the truth tellers of world, inspiring the Secular Humanist community to define the meaning of life without religion, and challenging our culture’s thinking about death and loss by revealing the transformational power of grief.
Kelly's professional life began working behind the scenes with her parents on various shows for HBO. She's dabbled in acting, photography, and lived a lot of life; learned a lot of lessons.
She's played her solo show all over the US, produced the critically acclaimed Showtime show, “The Green Room with Paul Provenza,” created and hosted her popular podcast and SiriusXM shows, published her memoir to rave reviews, and inspired thousands of artists, business leaders, writers, and truth seekers through her public speaking one-day and weekend workshops
