Carolyn Plummer

Sat, Sep 28 7:30pm

with opener Kelly MacFarland

Carolyn Plummer. 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-today monotony of the life of everyman. And she does it well.

To Carolyn the monumental is easy…it’s our existence that’s so hard, yet so ridiculous.  Some women look in the mirror and complain because they aren’t pretty enough, not rich enough, not young enough. Carolyn gives her reflection the finger.

The third child of a Congregational Minister and an “aloof” 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, Carolyn’s 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.

In her own words: 

“I have been doing comedy professionally for over 20 years.  I have traveled extensively and to many parts of this country few have dared to venture.  I have worked at clubs, colleges, dead animal lodges, theatres and corporations appearing with many of the top headliners in the business. I have participated in numerous festivals including the Burbank Comedy Festival; where I was named Best of the Fest, Boston Comedy Festival and The Women in Comedy Festival. I performed at Denis Leary’s Comics Come Home 26 at the TD Garden for the Cam Neely Foundation. I also won the Woody Herman Jazz award for my trumpet playing abilities but I’m not one to brag. I am a versatile comic who is at home telling jokes in front of nuns or biker dudes.”
