God help us. Some comics rely on the monumental events of the day or the faux pas of the rich and famous. Not Carolyn. Carolyn pulls material from the hum-drum, day-to-day monotony of the life of everyman. And she does it well. To Carolyn the monumental is easy as our existence that's so hard, yet so ridiculous. Some women look in the mirror and complain because they are not pretty enough,not rich enough, not young enough. Carolyn gives her reflection the finger. The third child of a Congregational Minister and an home maker mother;aloof? She's clueless; her favorite band is Blootie and the Hoefish. C.P. Carolyn learned early on that she could lament or she could make fun. See her once and you'll quickly figure out which path she chose. And you'll laugh. Possessing an uncanny ability to introspectively pull from places most of us hide, Carolyn puts a nail through the heart of whiners, self-loathers and the self-sorry of the world and makes the average seem hilarious and larger than life. Most of all, Carolyns twisted perception of our common existence leaves audiences hysterically shaking heads in agreement with her assessment that the world is indeed a very funny place.
Born and raised in New York, Dave Lamb has been performing stand-up comedy in and around Boston for almost four years. In that time, Dave has performed all over New England with some of the area's best and up-and-coming acts, and was selected as a participant in the 2014 Boston Comedy Festival. During his time in comedy Dave has performed in clubs, bars, casinos, restaurants, and rec centers, but can most often be seen headlining a classroom every weekday at an area public school, where he learned how to deal with hecklers. Dave's full-time career as a teacher and all of his experience working with young people provides him with an excellent source of material, as if his wife, family, and friends aren't enough already.
