“I don’t think I’m going to live a long life because I’ve never seen any really tall old ladies.”
In her UK debut hour LYNCHED, Carmen Lynch (The Late Show with David Letterman, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert) shares her twisted, singular stand-up comedy that frequently dips into the dark side. Childless and drug-free (but only because of her heart murmur), she’ll share her views on Jesus, giraffes, scoliosis, her Spanish mother, and very often, death.
Carmen Lynch comes to the Edinburgh Fringe after enjoying a host of high profile tele- vision appearances. As well as The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and twice on The Late Show with David Letterman, she has been featured on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Conan, @midnight (Comedy Central), Inside Amy Schumer, and The Good Wife.
On the big screen Carmen appeared in Miu Miu’s series of Women’s Tales directed by Chloë Sevigny entitled Carmen.
Carmen has performed for US troops in Iraq and Kuwait, and continues to tour in Spanish- speaking countries doing standup in Spanish. When she isn’t on the road, Carmen can usually be found at The Comedy Cellar in NYC.
