For a woman who thought she would work in advertising someday, comedy turned out to be where Holly Lynnea landed. The Louisville-based comedian, writer, actress and dancer with a wicked repartee, has performed comedy across the US and Canada. Holly further honed her comedic timing, while training in writing and improv at The Second City and iO Training Centers in Chicago, IL. Her comedic style is best described as charming, yet unapologetic. She engages her audiences by sharing the not-so-proud life experiences that led to her quirky worldviews.
Holly Lynnea made her television debut on the FOX Network's "Laughs TV" show. She also served as the lead dancer and choreographer in a music video for the Grammy nominated music group, The Foreign Exchange (Asking For A Friend) for their album, "Tales From The Land Of Milk and Honey". Most recently, Holly earned a spot as a semi-finalist for Stand-Up NBC.
She has worked with many notable comedians to include: D.L. Hughley (Original Kings of Comedy), Maronzio Vance (Last Comic Standing, Lopez), Steve O (Jackass), Rod Man (Last Comic Standing) and Rich Vos (HBO, Showtime, Starz, Jimmy Kimmel). She has also featured for comedians Roy Wood Jr. (Last Comic Standing, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah), Tommy Johnagin (Letterman, Conan, Last Comic Standing) and Sean Patton (Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Conan, Comedy Central) to name a few.
Holly has performed at the Cape Fear Comedy Festival (2014), Gilda's LaughFest (2012, 2013, 2014, 2016), Chicago Women's Funny Festival (2012 - 2016), Cincinnati Brew Ha-Ha (2012-2016), Scruffy City Comedy Festival (2014, 2015), Whiskey Bear Comedy Festival (2016), Toronto's SheDot Festival (2016), and the Derby City Comedy Festival (2014, 2015). Holly was recently selected to perform in the Laugh Your Asheville Off Comedy Festival, Accidental Comedy Festival, Crossroads Comedy Festival and the Scruffy City Comedy Festival in the fall of 2016.
When she is not performing comedy, she enjoys watching football, drinking male tears, astrology, pleading with her mom to calm down, and screaming "grow up" to unruly children.
