This week's Badass Chick is Carolyn Riley, a 23-year-old local comedian who was just named the Funniest Person in Massachusetts by Laugh Boston. 

 

Carolyn fell in love with comedy in high school when she was screening comedians for an upcoming fundraising performance. She began performing stand-up herself at the age of 20, and entered UNH's "Funniest person on Campus" contest…but she lost. No worries though, because she entered it again the next year and won the whole thing. She graduated early from school and moved to Boston to work in digital marketing full-time while doing comedy on the side and after four months, she decided it had to be the other way around: comedy full-time and freelance work for her "day job." 

 

In just three years of truly honing her craft, Carolyn has been named Laugh Boston's Funniest Person in Massachusetts and is consistently praised by others in the industry as an incredibly promising comedian. She's working 4-5 nights a week and her next goal is to go on the road as an opener for a headlining act. She'll be the headlining act soon enough, I promise.
