Growing up in the Lower East Side of Manhattan when it was still considered a tough place to live, Kenny used humor to navigate his way through childhood. With his first prank call to his mom's office at 7 years old pretending to be her important boyfriend she didn't have, to teaching his daughter the importance of laughter, Kenny has been making those close to him laugh for years. A natural storyteller, he will take you on a fun ride with stories of raising a little girl and some of life's unimportant things we still find very important with a bit of exaggerated truth to it!
In October 2015, Kenny won a contest at Gotham Comedy Club in NYC against hundreds of comedians that enabled him to appear on the 2016 season of Gotham Comedy Live on AXS TV. Kenny has also had several appearances on Laughs on Fox and Coming to the Stage on Hulu.
A mainstay in the NYC comedy scene since he started his career. Kenny has been asked to perform at clubs and theaters across the country, Canada and London opening for the likes of Josh Wolf, Theo Von, Dan Levy, George Wallace, Jon Rudnitsky, Whitney Cummings, Drew Lynch, April Macie, Godfrey, Chris Porter, Joey Vega, Ralph Harris,Aries Spiers and Angelo Lozada among others.
2015 was a big year for Kenny. In addition to winning the contest at Gotham, he was a finalist at the Burbank Comedy Festival in Los Angeles and was a finalist for NBC's Stand Up for Diversity competition.
Between 2017 and 2018 Kenny produced his own national tour across 36 states to the tune of over 8,000 tickets sold.
In 2019 he started performing on the Norwegian Cruise Line and was ranked as one of their highest rated performers.
2020 was a rough year for obvious reasons but Kenny survived by producing corporate Zoom shows and starting a podcast with his now ex wife Leah called Side by Side.
In 2022 Kenny has been on the road featuring for the likes of Josh Wolf, Theo Von, Damon Wayans and Chris Porter as well as Headlining off nights.
