Carly Aquilino Wiki/Career
Carly Aquilino was born on November 18, 1990, in Long Island, New York, where she was raised by her parents. Her passion for comedy began as a child and she began writing comedies in high school.
After high school, Carly began working as a hairdresser. She told LaughSpin during an interview in 2013 that she was working with runway models, which required her to work late into the night until about 2 am.
During this time, Carly dyed her hair red. It had nothing to do with attracting people’s attention as she explained to her campus. Carly never thought her light hair would become the characteristic feature that would distinguish her from the rest of her girl code stars.
Since her hairdressing job required working late into the night, Carly could not start her standing career for the obvious reason for the contradictory schedule.
In her late teens, Carly began to feel a terrible pain in her back, which worsened when she turned 20. She then visited a number of doctors and was found to have a benign tumor on her spine.
After an extensive search, she found a doctor who agreed to operate on her to remove the tumor. A bone in her spine was removed and replaced by a bone from her hip. Carly, who was already alone then, had to move back in with her parents to help her recover.
After her recovery, Carly took a day shift job in a limousine that gave her the nights to start her standing career. Her first MTV stand-up gig was 2012 at the Gotham Comedy Club.
Eight months after her stand-up career, Carly has successfully auditioned for Girl Code, which should eventually be her breakthrough. She used her Girl Code break to advance her career. Carly has hosted several live events for MTV and continues to do standup.
