Today, my continuing series featuring comedians in this year's Gilda's LaughFest spotlights Carmen Lynch.

Carmen jokes she's a half-Spaniard who fell into comedy by accident. She was an actress not getting any parts because all the boys being cast were shorter than she was. 

There is comedy in that; and the rest is history.

 

Catch Carmen Lynch in the Gun Lake Casino National Stand-Up Comedy Showcase on March 14 and 15 at 6 p.m., 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. at The BOB. The showcases feature two shows with 10 comics, and also include Cameron Esposito, Aparna Nancherla, Johnny Pemberton, Baron Vaughn, Joe Zimmerman, Tone Bell, Kurt Braunohler, Barry Rothbart and Hampton Yount.
