After an electrifying performance at amateur night in a Philadelphia comedy club, Kevin quit his shoe salesman job and began performing full time at venues such as The Boston Comedy Club, Caroline’s , Stand-Up NY, The Laugh Factory, and The Comedy Store in Los Angeles. However, it was his first appearance at the Montreal Just for Laughs Comedy Festival that led Kevin into roles in feature films.
Kevin just wrapped production on the remake of Untouchables and his animated film Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie will be released in June. He will also release his book I Can't Make This U: Life Lessons this summer
