Kevin Avery

Kevin Avery is a comedian and actor who has written, produced, and appeared in several comedy short films, including Not in a Gay Way and Black Guys on a Beautiful Day, which was recently featured in the HollyShorts Film Festival in Los Angeles.

His current short, Thugs, The Musical, is about a slightly delusional and very “non-urban” black actor in Hollywood who, after years of auditioning but not being considered black enough to be cast in any of the roles that his fellow black actors have been getting - the Gangsta, the fast-talking Sidekick, the one doomed Black Guy at the party in the horror movie - decides to write, direct, and star in his own theater production – an epically bad play called Thugs, The Musical – to show Hollywood (and the world) that he, too, can “act black”.

Kevin is currently funding this film project through donations at Kickstarter.com. For more info, or to donate, go to the following link.

You wanna raise my child? * CELEB PICK
You wanna raise my child? (01:57)
Marina Franklin

I think she’s one of the funniest people on the planet, and I love this bit because I, too, am afraid of this woman that she’s talking about.

Fingernails * CELEB PICK
Fingernails (01:49)
Sara Benincasa

If I had a sister, I feel like it would be Sara. Is that weird? I love this clip just cause it entertains me endlessly to watch her play with her pretend nails. Plus, how do you not fall in love with her funny? Sorry, too far again?

Cute but deadly * CELEB PICK
Cute but deadly (01:43)
Matt Braunger

Braunger is easily one of my top 5 favorite comics working today. And he does a kickass “owl” impression.
