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 she is.
She started her career in comedy part-time in 2006. Also, taping her 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 she had other credits to list, she probably wouldn't have included this one.
After just six months, Kellye was selected from a comedy competition with Power 92 radio station in Chicago to open for Katt Williams during the taping of American Hustler
. She that she was famous after this. Ha.
Some years passed and:
Kellye became a full-time comedian in June 2010. Since then, she's 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 forced. In 2010, Kellye was featured on Comedy Central's Russell Simmons Presents Stand-up at the El Rey.
One thing that is true when watching Kellye's performance is you never know what's next. Probably because she never knows what's next. Her comedy is unexpected and comes mainly from real life experiences. She seeks to find the funny in everything, regardless of how painful it may feel at the time. Her signature saying is "Laughter takes the pain away. Do yourself a favor and LAUGH today!" She lives 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!
