Caryn is the creator of Proton Comedy, which produces comedy shows in New Mexico and beyond. New Mexico is a state with plenty of talented comics but only a couple of comedy clubs. Proton Comedy seeks to fill a small part of that deficit by producing high quality shows in theaters, breweries, warehouses, backyards, bars and other unconventional venues – wherever people come together to laugh.


Proton Comedy’s tagline is “Stay Positive” – a nod to New Mexico’s roots in nuclear science and Caryn’s brand of comedy that builds the audience up rather than lowering them into the gutter. Shows are high energy and typically stacked with a handful of experienced comics performing original material. Shows are not exactly “family friendly,” but you can take your parents to them without wondering if you are going to have only silence in the car ride home.


Caryn and Proton Comedy currently produce Comedy Night!, a monthly show at Brew Lab 101 in Rio Rancho, New Mexico. Shows run on the first Thursday or a random Friday of every month. Starting in 2024, there are now shows on select Saturday nights at Brew Lab's Northeast Heights location in Albuquerque. Come check out a show!
