Kiel Kennedy is from beautiful Chico, California. He attended the UCLA School of Theater, where he studied and learned a whole lot of the... “craft.” But despite a penchant for yelling dramatically, Kiel knew he also must learn how to yell comedically. After a few years spent cutting his comedy teeth in standup, Kiel enrolled in The Groundlings School, and he is extremely proud to call himself a member of the Main Company. Kiel has most recently appeared in NOBODIES and SUPERSTORE. He has written for ROBOT CHICKEN and currently writes for the Emmy nominated show SUPERMANSION.
