Barbara Carlyle


Barbara has been doing comedy for 40 years! We are proud to be part of her “40 Years and a Stool Tour!” Her comedic skills are so carefully honed that she leaves audiences in stitches wherever she goes. But comedy hasn’t always been her only contribution to society. Carlyle did a short stint in the Marine Corps (‘cause she was looking for a few good men) and tried her hand at teaching for a short while.

Barbara has appeared on The Apollo Comedy Hour, Def Jam, Comic View, and Comic Xscape just to name a few. A stickler for detail, she can speed read an audience and know exactly where to take her jokes. Hecklers think twice about testing her skills because this young lady takes no prisoners and die hard wannabes fall prey to her vicious tongue. Carlyle has performed in Germany, The Netherlands, England, the Virgin Islands (trying to be a born-again virgin) and other exotic places. Carlyle has one daughter and several baby daddies. You do the math. Her aim in life is to leave an indelible mark in the world of comedy.
