For a woman who thought she would work in advertising someday, comedy turned out to be where Holly Lynnea landed. With a comedic style best described as honest and cerebral, this shy girl from Louisville, KY explores the humor of life's nuances, mixing the agony of single-hood with quick wit and off-beat observations. Always engaging the audience, her sometimes brash comedy draws from experiences that led to her quirky and hilarious worldviews. Her topics include: the woes of aging, dating, race, mistaken identity and presents it in a charmingly unapologetic package. Bow sold separately.
Originally trained in sketch writing and improv from the Second City and iO Training Centers in Chicago, Holly Lynnea was drawn to stand-up comedy immediately. In record time, she has opened for D.L. Hughley and featured for Roy Wood Jr., Darryl Rhoades, Tommy Johnagin, Donna Carter and Mary Tischbein. She has also worked with Greg Hahn, Maronzio Vance, Louis Katz, Matt Fulchiron, Claude Stuart, Comedian Landry, Jodi White, Spanky Brown and Rod Man.
