In Last LaughMStarsNews talks to our favorite comedians or funny people about some of the last experiences they’ve had over the years. For this installment, we welcome in comedian Carmen Lynch.

Not many comedians attempt to get into the FBI before taking to the stage, but Carmen Lynch sure did. And while her path eventually led her to comedy, the Clarice Starling of stand up has made quite a name for herself in the New York scene. She has been featured on The Late Show with David Letterman and stars in her own web series titled Apt. C 3And now, she sits down for the MStarsNews Last Laugh interview series.

So, Carmen Lynch, who/what/where/when was the…

MStarsNews: Last time you wore something you hated?
Carmen Lynch: I had to wear a dress with big flowers to an audition recently. Flowers belong in a garden. I looked like a tree in the spring.

MS: Last person to see you naked?
CL: He knows.

MS: Last day job you had?
CL: I worked for an insurance company in downtown NYC. Our entire department was laid off by our sister company in Texas, so basically, we were fired in a conference room by a phone on speaker.

MS: Last place you traveled to outside of the US?
CL: Spain, last Christmas. I visit my nieces as much as I can, but they’re not old enough to understand why I don’t just live there. When I leave for the airport they’re like, “Can you come back for lunch tomorrow?”

In Last LaughMStarsNews talks to our favorite comedians or funny people about some of the last experiences they’ve had over the years. For this installment, we welcome in comedian Jen Kirkman.

From looking at her resume, it seems as if there’s not much comedian Jen Kirkman can’t do. Let’s see: she’s thrived in the often-difficult world of stand up comedy, landed a solid writing gig on E!’sChelsea Latelysuccessfully started her I Seem Fun podcast, and even found a spot on theNew York Time Best Sellers list with her book I Can Barely Take Care Of MyselfObviously, despite the title, it looks as if she’s doing just fine.

So, Jen Kirkman, who/what/where/when was the…

MStarsNews: Last time you wore something you hated?
Jen Kirkman: A few weeks ago when I was on a show in L.A. I wore my mom’s old Peter Max (Google it young people) skirt. And although it’s awesome, a button popped. I also looked like a fortune teller.

MS: Last person to see you naked?
JK: Sadly, this woman at a salon who gave me a full body spray tan. And if you mean saw me naked in a love-making, sensual way, a male friend whose name will not be mentioned –– that way nobody gets mad.

MS: Last day job you had?
JK: I count being a writer on Chelsea Lately as a day job because I have to sit on my ass at a desk during the day but if by “day job” you mean a soul-sucking thing I do just for money because I don’t have the body to be a stripper … that would have to be working as a temp filing in a windowless room at a law firm in Los Angeles. I won’t tell you the year because it will make me look like a loser.

At some point in time, television tossed away the good-hearted fun of shows such as Candid Camera and focused more so on pranks and tricks. Some would argue that such an act caused there to be a incredible disconnect between the at-home viewer and the television show itself. But now, truTV is attempting to bring back that feeling of awe with The Carbonaro Effect and magicianMichael Carbonaro.

The show, which premiered to outstanding numbers back in May, features Carbonaro as the host / magician who places himself in everyday situations with random, unsuspicious people and then performs baffling tricks for them right before their very eyes.

Carbonaro recently spoke with MStarz about the show, his love of both magic and improv, and how he’s hoping to bring back the feel of Candid Camera with his new show.

MStarsNews: The show puts an interesting spin on the whole idea of hidden camera shows. It’s very different from the Candid Camera‘s we’ve seen in the past. Were you a fan of those growing up?

Michael Carbonaro: Oh my gosh, yes! I might be Candid Camera‘s number one fan. What I loved about it, which I think we’re doing on this show, was the playful non-mean-spirited way it did a hidden camera show. Hidden camera shows took a turn and became just prank shows somewhere in time. What I loved about Allen Funt was the way it was really about watching yourself when you watched the show and how you’d react.

This show is a way to bring magic into a new light and watch the way we as people relate to magic. And the joy is not only in the voyeurism you get from a hidden camera show but also in the way we as human beings watch ourselves believe in the most impossible things.
