A Carlin Home Companion: Growing Up With George

An entrant in the All for One Theater Festival, which specializes in developing and showcasing one-person shows, Kelly Carlin shows us a behind-the-curtain look at her life growing up with her famous comedian-father, George.

Touching, poignant, and captivating, this multimedia look at her family life hit all the right notes. Part therapy for her and part saying goodbye to George for us, this cathartic 90 minutes on stage for Kelly just made you feel plain old fashioned good about the dysfunctional family.

Kelly's plan to take the show on the road to each zip code her father performed in seems like a great gesture and will allow everyone to have a proper goodbye to a rather funny man and allow her to let go a little bit more with each performance.
