Described by the Chicago Tribune as "a physical expression of an exclamation point", Kevin White approaches topics like heartbreak, financial woe and fear of the future with a cheerful cynicism and an urgent stage presence. His stand up is personal, engaging and very visual. He also knows how to spell "BOOBS" with a calculator.
Kevin couldn’t wait to get on stage, and began performing stand up comedy right out of high school at the age of 18. In 2009 he founded Punch Drunk Comedy (now known as Bare Knuckle Comedy) in his home town of St. Louis, MO, where he performed both stand up and sketch comedy. The show has become the city’s longest-running independent comedy showcase, and is still going strong as the premiere destination for comedy in St. Louis. Since then his jokes have been used by Microsoft to promote their Windows phone and featured on the home page of RooftopComedy.com. Kevin now lives in Chicago where his writing helped win “Best Sketch/Improv Troupe” from the Chicago Reader for his work with late night show Talk Hard.
He performs all over the U.S. and has worked with the likes of Eddie Pepitone, Kyle Kinane, Brendon Walsh, Sean Patton, Ben Kronberg and more. Additionally, Kevin placed 1st in the 2nd annual Gateway To Hope “Laughter For Life” cancer benefit & comedy competition, as well as making it to the semi-finals of the "Funniest Person in Cincinnati" competition and the Riverfront Time’s “Stand Up Throwdown”. Most recently he was one of the very few new talents selected to participate in the celebrated first ever High Plains Comedy Festival in Denver in 2013.
