KJ Whitehead (Born Kyle Joseph Whitehead) is a Chicago native comedian whose blend of embarrassing stories about themself and rather peculiar point of view make up their brand!
I've been called an oreo since I was 11. At first, I was a little embarrassed that people joked about me being a white person trapped in a black person's body. After some time, I've realized that being an oreo doesn't mean anything bad, that just means I'm delicious!
In the fall of 2014, KJ completed and performed as a player for the Comedy Studies Showcase at the Second City in The Backstreet Not Taken, wrote and performed with Taxidermists in Love for Columbia College Chicago and performed at The COMFORT ZONE at the Playground Theater, several times. They currently host a monthly comedic, political talk show, America's Dead... LET'S PARTY!, also at the Playground Theater.
KJ is a Columbia College Chicago Alumni with a Bachelor's Degree in Theater: Comedy Writing and Performance, a Comedy Studies Alumni, Second City Conservatory Graduate and active cast member of iO Comedy Network's LGBTQ+ Collective, Friends of Dorothy !
