If you’ve ever just heard of the A Carlin Home Companion, images of a cramped-in radio station with the most subversive comedic voices in comedy talking about what’s wrong with the world would most likely come up. However, while having those types of comedians that both knew and carry on the comedic influence of George Carlin mentioned and talked about in it, the show is actually Kelly Carlin‘s, the one and only daughter of George Carlin; it’s her one-woman piece about growing up a Carlin.
Whether you have indeed heard of Companion or not, you’re about to hear a lot more from Kelly, as SiriusXM just announced that she’ll host a once-a-month show on their Raw Dog and Carlin’s Corner comedy channels, where she’ll talk both about her famous dad but more importantly about the art form of comedy with the likes of Eddie Izzard, Lewis Black and Chris Hardwick. The Kelly Carlin Show will kick off this Sunday, Feb. 12 at 7:00 pm ET with guest Robin Williams.
And although Kelly isn’t a comedian, she’s surely no stranger to this type of format since she’s the host of her own popular podcast, Waking From The American Dream, part of film director Kevin Smith’s podcast network. She’s also the producer of Showtime’s acclaimed series The Green Room with Paul Provenza.
