Episode 29: Kelly Carlin

Today on the Rarified Heir Podcast, we talk to Kelly Carlin, humorist, monologist, writer, therapist and all around amazing woman about growing up Carlin. That’s right, she’s the daughter of one of the greatest stand-up comedians of all time, the one, the only George Carlin. And boy, is this episode a winner. First off, Kelly was the inspiration for this podcast after a meeting at the grand opening of the National Comedy Center in Jamestown, New York in 2018. Her book A Carlin Home Companion about growing up Carlin is a must read. It’s a wonderful and truthful look at herself and her family and she doesn’t pull punches. It’s honest and raw and gives great insight into not only her own life but the uncomfortable issues we all face with our families but rarely talk about. Her candor and insight into growing up as the child of a celebrity touches on everything from guru Ram Dass and comedian Jack Burns to Ted Knights Ted Baxter character and the alternative comedy stylings of The Jerky Boys. It’s a ‘very special episode’ of the Rarified Heir Podcast because it’s Kelly Carlin, talking to you about her own life as a Jungian therapist to her Women on the Verge program that is necessary and needed program in this wacky world we live in. We loved everything about this episode and somehow we didn’t even mention Wally Londo. Take a listen to the Rarified Heir Podcast.
