DC Comedy Festival: Carmen Lynch
Add to my Calendar Get DirectionsPrint This Event
The 2nd Annual DC Comedy Festival is in full effect. Come join us for another great year of shows. This year Miracle Theatre will be one of our featured Venues. The Headliner on this show will be Carmen Lynch Carmen Lynch is the offspring of a petite Spanish nurse and a tall American Naval officer. After moving 18 times and finally settling in Spain, Carmen began her performance career as a flamenco dancer. Years later, Carmen majored in pre-med, and was well on her way to fulfilling her parent?s dreams, when, struck by an unaccountable ennui and strong gas pains, unexpectedly changed her major to Psychology and applied to the FBI. She was rejected by the FBI (she received the "skinny envelope") and soon after moved to NYC to pursue acting. But at 6 feet tall Carmen couldn't see eye to eye with any of her male leads. Eventually for her determination and a love of basements, Carmen pursued stand up comedy and has now been seen on HBO's Aspen Comedy Festival, Comedy Central's Premium Blend and was a finalist on the first season of NBC's Last Comic Standing. She has appeared on Conan, Inside Amy Schumer, Last Comic Standing, The Late Show with David Letterman, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, @midnight and A Prairie Home Companion. Headliners: Jordan Carlos and Carmen LynchDate: 4/13/2019 8 PMMusic by; DJ DragonFestival Comedians: TBAThe Festival is meant to introduce the public to the comedy scene here in DC and give back to the Community that has given so much to us and our art form. We hold a public search prior to the Festival Year and find the top 100 Comedians, Improv Groups and Sketch Comedy Groups. Then invite them to come to the DC area and perform for the most deserving audience in the world. Going into the Second year we wanted to go a little bigger than the first Year. Working with venues from ALL over the DC area like, DC Drafthouse Comedy Theater, Miracle Theatre, DC Comedy Loft, and Dupont Underground just to name a few.
