Kevin was originally born in Seoul, Korea and in January of 1981 he was adopted and sent to America to live with a middle class Irish family in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
Being from a very middle class family, Kevin was the first to attend college. After graduating from the Indiana University of Pennsylvania, Kevin was curious to explore the rest of the country, so he moved to San Francisco in 2000. There he would discover Stand-Up.
After moving to San Francisco, Kevin started a career in the Internet industry which lasted a whole year. In 2002 he was layed off and was convinced by a friend to go to an open mic. Influenced by Eddie Murphy's "RAW", Kevin decided to go to the open mic dressed in a purple leather jump suit......not a good idea. His first set was not very good.
Not trying to become the typical Asian comic Kevin strayed away from Korean accents based on their mothers'.....plus his mom is a honkey. He concetrated on developing his own style which has said to be very laid back and fresh. With his unique style and jokes, he caught the eyes of hollywood and was invited to the prestigious Montreal Comedy Festival.
Kevin has numerous television appearances which include Comedy Central's Premium Blend and Jimmy Kimmel Live. He is currently living in Los Angeles.
He is hilarious.

To some, the Asian man gets no respect in the United States. Counter measures include taking up carjacking or switching to an all-Kosher diet.
