Her solo show BROWN AMBITION premiered at Ars Nova theatre in February 2009. It went on to run Off-Broadway at 59E59 and played for a month at the 2009 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. While in Edinburgh, Carolyn was chosen by London-based production company Brown Eyed Boy to film "Laughtershock Worldwide," a television pilot featuring "edgy" stand-ups from around the globe. Three Weeks said, "Carolyn Castiglia was the funniest female comedian I've seen at the fringe."
Carolyn's jokes have been printed in over 50 issues of Life & Style magazine in the Style Slip-Ups section as well as the book, "The Idiot’s Guide to Jokes." Her writing has been featured in Time Out New York Joke of the Week and the New York Post’s, "KILLER JOKES."

For three years she hosted and co-produced the weekly showcase Chicks and Giggles featured in the New Yorker, New York Times and BUST Magazine, which enjoyed a very successful run at Mo Pitkin’s and Ochi’s Lounge at Comix. Carolyn is enormously proud to be one of the subjects of the documentary PERFORM, a permanent installation at the Museum of the City of New York.
