The Big Deal: A Carlin Home Companion Presented By The Eisemann Center

by Gila Espinoza 8 Feb 2017 8:31 AM

There was no topic (or words) off limits for the subversive stand-up, actor, and social critic – the late George Carlin. In 2015, Carlin’s daughter and only child Kelly Carlin released her book, “A Carlin Home Companion: Growing Up with George.” In it, she details her journey from living in the shadow of her father to standing in the light on her own. Kelly has now turned her story into a solo show where she weaves in family stories and classic video footage of her father’s career. Enter for a chance to see “A Carlin Home Companion: Growing up with George,”  and get an intimate glimpse into the funny and emotional Carlin family life.  The winning pair of tickets will be good for the February 24 performance at the Eisemann Center for Performing Arts in Richardson.


Now is also a great time now to check out the companions to this Big Deal.  Enter for a chance to win tickets to “Deer: A Grisly, Pitch-Black Comedy” at Stage West or a family tickets to Maya: Hidden Worlds Revealed at the Perot Museum of Nature and Science.
