Carmen Lynch '94 (BS) I'm a stand up comedian in New York City. I have to use my psychology degree every day, when I write material about myself (it's not always pretty). Then at night, I have to use it on the audience (who are these people? what do they want from me? why are they staring at me like that? etc.) If show goes well, I'm okay. If show does not go well, I have to console myself, which I can do thanks to my degree. Thanks for listening. www.carmenlynch.com. (10/09)
