Recently my career has gotten pushed into overdrive. Just finished filming the reality TV pilot "My Life is a Joke" produced by Page Hurwitz. This show aired on the OWN network just a few months ago...so go back in to the archives of OWN and check it out dammit!
Next month I will be featured on Nickelodeon's NickMOM's "Night Out", a stand-up show catered to the hardest working people in the world...MOMS!
And I am happy to share that I recently signed with 3arts Entertainment. No, they didn't do a huge write up on deadline.com, but hey who cares...I'm still excited!
One thing that is true when watching my performance is you never know what’s next. Probably because I never know what’s next. My comedy is unexpected and comes mainly from real life experiences. I seek to find the funny in everything, regardless of how painful it may feel at the time. My signature saying is: “Laughter Takes the Pain Away, Do yourself a Favor and LAUGH today!” I live by this daily...you should too!
Be on the look out for this bag of gags, for she has big dreams and plans to live each and every one of them to the fullest. Damn...3rd person again, well you get the point!
When describing Kellye, there are only two words that are applicable...self-‐ proclaimed ADHD. High-‐energy, in your face, emotionally unstable funny girl. Yep, that’s what I am.
Oh wait...I started this Bio out in the 3rd person, damn I guess now you know it’s me writing it. Okay well anyways, I started my career in comedy part-‐time in 2006. Also taping my first television performance that same year on TBS as a feature in Pauley Shore’s Hot Girls of Comedy; a segment of Minding the Store. If I had other credits to list...I probably wouldn’t have included this one.
After just six months, I was selected from a comedy competition with Power 92 radio station in Chicago to open for Katt Williams during the taping of American hustler. I thought I was famous after this. Ha...as we can see...
Some years past and:
I became a full-‐time comedian in June 2010. Since then I’ve been getting some consistent work. She has been on both military and college tours, having performed in Korea for a month for the United States Armed forces. In 2010 Kellye was featured on Comedy Central’s Russell Simmons Presents Stand-‐up at the El Rey. Oh wait, I forgot I’m writing this for myself...ok, just go back and reread the last couple of sentences in the first person. Thanks
