    April Reign
    April Reign practiced law for nearly twenty years, honing her talent for public speaking, persuasive writing and effecting policy change, but it wasn’t until she walked away from her legal practice that she found her true passion.
    As the creator of the viral hashtag-turned-movement, #OscarsSoWhite, April has been challenging the lack of representation of marginalized communities in Hollywood and beyond since 2015. Reign sustains a movement that has resulted in the most permanent systemic change ever seen in the over 80-year history of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Her name continues to be synonymous with this historic change, the results of which are reverberating throughout the entertainment industry and will do so for decades to come.
    Reign is an influential and sought-after media presence, having built an impressive global organic social media following over several platforms, as well as a network of recognized celebrities, creators, activists, and decision makers at the corporate level. Reign capitalizes on this network and her experience, using her voice to spark conversations and explore issues of race, politics and culture, helping structure ways to turn dialogue into action.
    April Reign travels internationally, speaking at academic institutions and conferences; is available for appearances at industry awards, festivals and events; and is highly sought-after for consulting with organizations regarding issues of diversity and inclusion.

    Whether Kelly Carlin is supporting women in finding their voices and essential selves, performing her personal essays to laughs and tears, revealing her take on the culture and psyche of modern life on her and others’ podcasts, or interviewing iconic comedians, she is dedicated to revealing unmined perspectives and asking the big questions about human life.

    In 2015, her best-selling memoir, “A Carlin Home Companion: Growing up with George,” was published by St. Martin’s Press and her honesty, keen insight and humor was on full display. Jay Mohr summed up the power of her work by saying, “For anyone that has ever not been sure who they are, this book is for you. There is a landing spot. Let Kelly Carlin be your beacon.”

    In the last eight years she toured her solo show internationally, produced the critically acclaimed Showtime show, “The Green Room with Paul Provenza,” created her popular podcast, “Waking from the American Dream,” and has interviewed dozens of iconic and popular comedians on her SiriusXM show, “The Kelly Carlin Show.” She has spoken at various venues and conferences, such as The Chautauqua Institute, Imagine No Religion conference, the Reason Rally, and Watermark and the Boston Ad Club. Through her public speaking and workshops she has inspired thousands of artists, business leaders, writers, and truth seekers to question the status quo within their lives and culture.

    As the daughter of the iconoclast and legendary comedian George Carlin, she has not only taken up the torch of his legacy through her own writing and speaking, but by also releasing her father’s work through many media, protecting his work and image in the public sphere, and most recently, by donating his archives to the National Comedy Center in Jamestown, NY where they will be on permanent display when the center opens in August of 2018.

    She proudly serves on the Board of Trustees for the Thomas Jefferson Center for the Protection of Free Expression, and the Board of Industry Advisors for the National Comedy Center.
