Daughters of Comedy Godfathers: Kelly Carlin, Rain Pryor, & Kitty Bruce

Kelly Carlin, Rain Pryor, and Kitty Bruce are the daughters of the godfathers of comedy. Their fathers, George Carlin, Richard Pryor, and Lenny Bruce, shaped the stand-up comedy you hear today. If you listen to any of their routines and none of them surprise you, it’s because they influenced every comedian who came later. In this exclusive interview with FIRE, the daughters speak out for the first time together about their fathers and the censorship fights that all three comedy legends combatted in their quests to stay true to their art. An audio version of the interview can be heard on FIRE’s “So to Speak: The Free Speech Podcast” at: http://sotospeakpodcast.com
