When Someone You Love Dies, There Is No Such Thing as Moving On | Kelley Lynn
Stand-up comedian, actor and writer Kelley Lynn has performed in the same lineups with Amy Schumer, Jim Gaffigan and Elayne Boosler. Lynn is probably best known for her comedy videos on YouTube; her most recent video, “I’ve McFallen,” has been viewed over 50 million times worldwide. Below is her TEDx talk “When Someone You Love Dies, There is No Such Thing as Moving On.”
“I am a comedian, writer, actor, and performer; residing just outside NYC; trying to live my dreams. I had the most wonderful marriage and husband in the world. Then, on July 13, 2011, my life changed forever when he went into sudden cardiac arrest and was instantly taken from us. He was only 46; I was only 39; and he was my world”
Lynn is also a regular presenter at the “Soaring Spirits International” annual events called “Camp Widow,” a three-day conference held in the U.S. and Canada for widowed men and women. She is currently writing her first book, My Husband Is Not a Rainbow: The Brutally Awful, Hilarious Truth About Life, Love, Grief, and Loss. Her proudest accomplishment continues to be when she was blocked on Twitter by President Donald Trump. Lynn has a B.F.A. in Theatre from Adelphi University, where she went on to teach courses in acting and stand-up comedy for the past 16 years. You can see more of her work at ripthelifeiknew.com.
