I have the thoughtful, smart, talented Kelly Carlin in the studio today!
We have a ton in common, both tendered & raised by professionally funny men.
Chickenman & The Hippy Dippy Weatherman
I am not sure I have discussed the fact my dad was Chickeman. He was local radio personality in Chicago and dressed up in feathers and tights and went to malls on weekends to meet people. After the feathers, he became a national radio guy and advertising guru as well.
I always thought kelly’s dad was much cooler, truly the comic’s comic that spans generations with his humor and brilliance. I was lucky enough in my Comedy Store days to watch him put together shows.
All that being said, they are still just our dad’s, that we love, and try are best to be the good girl for… or the good daughter.
Kelly and I unpacked our lives as daughter’s, showbiz struggles and finally how to be your own women. Kelly is doing full force… me I am a bit behind.
I think we both dove deep in this conversation and held nothing back, talked about everything from Carl Jung to money, to Carol Burnett.

Kelly’s dad was a bit uncomfortable with the autobiographical work and that created pause.
You may be visiting the same part of the circle in your life but you are a little higher up so you have a little more consciousness
Lisa is up for anything, but her follow through in life is sucky
Kelly needed to get on stage
These negotiation we make inside of ourselves with our parents is interesting.
Kelly is writing her second book about daughter-hood.
None of the stories we tell ourselves are true. You get to rewrite your story. This is where follow through comes in.
What if there is no safety net? The safety net does you a disservice.
Kelly’s father’s legacy is really important to her. She wanted to participate in the world as his daughter. She needed to walk the fire of being her father’s daughter in public.
Lisa hears’ all the time, you’re just like your Dad, but not quite…
We’ve all felt like we’re drowning, we’ve all been lost and confused, overwhelmed by tragedy. We need to tell our stories.
Kelly needed to get over her stage fright.
Kelly needed to prove to herself she could do it
We live in a world that has no set path anymore unless you are in technology.
How do you monetize this??? It’s not so much about what you want to do. It’s more about the needs of the people out there that you align with.
How many pots are on your stove and what are the pots. You only have so much fuel for so many burners in your life.
The only way we get things done is by incremental baby steps each week.
