#235 Dan St Germain and Carmen Lynch
Dan and Carmen tell interesting stories about their hair.
Dan’s a regular on Best Week Ever and has his own Comedy Central Half Hour Special. He’s been seen on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, John Oliver’s NY Standup Show, The Electric Company, and a bunch of other basic and not so basic cable shows… Don’t watch his drunken racist rant on Logo. He was going through a hard time. He’s the creator and star of the web series Kicking Dan Out featured on My Damn Channel and has his own podcast called My Dumb Friends co-hosted by friend and lover Sean Donnelly which will be launching on Comedy Central Sirius this spring. He’s appeared as a guest on WTF with Marc Maron and The Artie Lange Show, as a “New Face” at The Montreal Comedy Festival, and in a Super Bowl commercial with Howard Stern. His “Cat Guy” joke was selected as one of the twenty best jokes about NY, a list which included Woody Allen. He’s currently developing a script for Comedy Central called Hell Hole as well as a web series for Comedy Central Studios about over night security guards called In Security. Dan’s album Bad at The Good Times comes out on A Special Thing Records this year. Buy it so he doesn’t have to return to a life of crime.
Carmen Lynch is the offspring of a petite Spanish nurse and a tall American Naval officer. She was born in California — the town where Clint Eastwood was mayor — and soon after moved to Spain to begin her performance career as a flamenco dancer (it sounds like a joke but she’s got pictures to prove it). After graduating from The College of William & Mary with a degree in psychology, Carmen applied to the FBI but failed the psychology portion of the exam. So naturally, she moved to NY to pursue acting. Not realizing she’d moved to the mecca of stand-up comedy, Carmen eventually tried it out and fell in love — or something. Carmen made her network debut as one of the top 20 comics on the first season of “Last Comic Standing” on NBC. She’s also performed on Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend” and was featured on HBO’s U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen. She’s also done a lot of Spanish shows including SiTV’s “Latino Laugh Festival” and toured as one of the Latinas of Comedy with Paul Rodriguez. As a prolific writer, she’s also freelanced with MAD Magazine. Catch her on this season of “Last Comic Standing.”
