Due to the well known fact that “it’s so cold in the D”, back in 2005 Carly decided to hit the bricks and ditch Michigan for LA. Nine years, and a whole bunch of over priced and embarrassing “acting” classes, the dream has been realized. After completing her training at The Groundlings, Carly has co-starred in the film CHIPS, Hit and Run, and played an uber adorable bartender on Parenthood. Life has clearly been a dream boat for this little lady. Carly is super excited to be a part of The Captains, but don’t be fooled; if SNL calls tomorrow, this chick will split like a thief in the night! 😉
