You might have seen Kyle Grooms, but it’s highly unlikely you know his name. He’s a guy that has a resume that could have earned him a cushy spot in a writer's room somewhere, which for most comedians is a form of purgatory disguised as success; but instead of resting on his merit Grooms continues living the life of a road dog, working club after club, in town after town, weekend after weekend – 52 weeks a year.
Grooms is a witty, intelligent comic with a perspective that his uniquely his. The consistent quality of his material has earned him a ½ hour special on Comedy Central, countless appearances on Vh1, and led to him becoming a finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing. Admittedly, most impressive, as far as this guy is concerned, is the fact that he worked on the landmark moment television known as The Chappelle Show. He also released the critically acclaimed comedy album Legend of the Jersey Devil.
Grooms will be making his first appearance here in Louisville this weekend at The Laughing Derby, May 8th – 10th. Tickets are $15, and times will vary. Scott Sharp and Eric Sorgel are also on the show.
