Description

Kevin was originally born in Seoul, Korea and in January of 1981 he was adopted and sent to America to live with a middle class Irish family in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

After moving to San Francisco, Kevin started his career doing stand-up comedy and open mic shows around town. Not trying to become the typical Asian comic Kevin strayed away from Korean accents based on their mothers’…..plus his mom is a honkey. He concentrated on developing his own style that has said to be very laid back and fresh. With his unique style and jokes, he caught the eyes of Hollywood and was invited to the prestigious Montreal Comedy Festival.

Kevin has numerous television appearances, which include Comedy Central’s Premium Blend, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and HBO’s Down and Dirty. Most recently he was the winner of 2009 NBC’s Stand Up for Diversity Showcase. He was given a talent deal and showcased at the 2010 NACA National Conference, where he went on to book over 75 college dates.
