If you’ve ever been overshadowed in your life or had parents, a sibling or spouse who got all the attention, this will be a fascinating conversation for you.
Kelly Carlin has struggled to find out where she fits in. She is the only child of legendary comedian George Carlin, and she has written a book about her journey to find her own identity as the daughter of one of the most brilliant entertainers of our time.
In A Carlin Home Companion: Growing Up With George, Kelly writes beautifully and candidly about being raised in a house of addiction, conflict and, most importantly, love. She explains how her story is both unique and very much like everyone else’s.
Kelly talks to Growing Bolder about this upbringing and how it was characterized by both great joy and great sorrow.
Now in her 50s, Kelly has already had several careers. She’s been a therapist, scriptwriter, author, life coach and hosts a radio show on Sirius. She talks to GB about her journey, including her passion for her projects called Waking From the American Dream. It was a project that began when her father was still alive, inspired by one of his bits, and it lives on now through a series of podcasts.
