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."
