Making People Laugh
A Michigan native, Kerri says she found her comedic calling at age two. She learned how to tell jokes and became addicted to making people laugh.
After her college years, she moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in acting. She graduated from the two-year program at well-known Second City and studied at the Groundlings for Improv. She relates that one night, after much prayer, it was apparent that God had plans for her to do stand-up comedy.
Today, along with many other platforms for her humor, she continues to work the comedy club circuit and is in high demand. Her tours cover much of the United States and Canada, as well as a range of television programs.
Her latest DVD is on sale now: "Two Comics Walk Into a Church," which also features her comedian husband, Ron McGehee.
