Kelli Dunham

Standup comedian Kelli Dunham has been seen on Showtime, the Discovery Channel, the Moth Mainstage, the Cinderblock Comedy Festival, the Risk podcast, PBS Stories from Stage, the Gotham Storytelling Festival, and nationwide at colleges, prides, fundraisers and even the occasional livestock auction. Kelli was nominated as a 2015 White House Champion of Change (not under the current administration) for her work as the co-founder and producer of Queer Memoir, NYC’s longest-running most super earnest LGBT storytelling event. Kelli is the author of seven hilarious nonfiction books about very not humorous subjects (include kids’ guides to puberty) and recently helped set the Guinness World Record for longest comedy show/multiple performers. New York Mayor Bill De Blasio once called Kelli a show-off. To her face. Kelli’s newest comedy album, Not the Gym Teacher, is out now on all digital platforms.
