Once the former college basketball player turned coach and English teacher got bitten by the comedy big he realized he needed to spread his wings and headed to Hollywood.
Armed with a hilarious take on what it’s like being the jealous boyfriend in the social media age, Kevin has quickly become one of the most popular comics in Hollywood. From hosting every week at the world famous Laugh Factory, being a finalist for Shaquille O’Neal’s Next Comedy All Star, performing on Aspire TV’s We Got Next, and touring the comedy club circuit nationwide, Kevin has become an underground sensation.
