Kellye here...a bit about me,
I'm primarily known for my stand-up comedy and
acting. I've been featured on Comedy Central, TBS,
NBC, FOX, WGN, as well as several other cool
write-up's both in print and on the web.
Check out my reel here.
Some fun things I'm doing or have done:
NEW MOVIE ALERT "Cherry" Feb 2021 Starring Tom Holland
Costar on Final Season of Empire. Taraji handed me my ass...or should I say Cookie
Costar on Season (8) of Chicago Fire I play a hostage negotiator, with a gun and everything!
Correspondent for the Comedy Central Podcast 'South Side'
I host a sometimesy ass podcast, ‘Be less Petty
(now on iTunes and Soundcloud).
The Chicago Sun-times named me "Chicago's BOLDEST comedian"...I'd agree!
FUN FACT: I was an electrician in the U.S. Air Force (Unexpected...right?)
AND...Living out my parents dream; I am the self-proclaimed love child of Oprah Winfrey, Richard Pryor, Bernie Mac, and Lucille Ball. If you can picture that.
My primary goal is to motivate and inspire through performance and communications of any form. So whether you've seen me live as a stand-up comedian, or at a storytelling show, caught my latest podcast, or read something I've written online, the themes are all the same; real-life experiences expressed in a sometimes comedic fashion.
In a nutshell, I love to share my life as a mother, a woman, a daughter, a wife, a comedian, a writer and all the in-betweens.
Wanna know more weird intimate thoughts?

Stay safe, stay sane. Enjoy 2021 cause it's not 2020!
