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 visual.
In 2009 Kevin 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. Kevin currently produces the comedy debate show Arguments & Grievances in Chicago, which was awarded 2014's "Best Variety Show" by Chicago Magazine, and hailed as "smart, high-stakes tomfoolery disguised in a brilliant, faux-brainy conceit....This show is a riot." by the Chicago Tribune.
He performs all over the U.S. and has worked with the likes of Kyle Kinane, Ben Kronberg, Eddie Pepitone 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”.
