Third-person brag bio time!
Kris McDermott is a digital marketing nerd by day and teller of jokes and stories by night, wherever they’ll let her.
She came to comedy in the fall of 2012, deciding on a whim to take The Feminine Comique, a world-class foundational stand-up class focused on the female experience, as a personal challenge. She quickly got hooked, and started attending open mics and doing showcases shortly after.
Originally from a small town in Ohio, her voice is dry with a blue-collar sensibility. She’s interested in exploring topics like gender, race and class, always with a self-deprecating voice. She’s performed in Chicago showcases such as Stand-Up at Studio Be, The Gogo Show, Double Shot Showcase and Performance Anxiety Chicago, and performed as part of Cleveland’s Accidental Comedy Fest in 2013.
