Comedian Kiry Shabazz

January 26, 2019


Fresh from recording a set for Hulu and claiming first place at the Rooster T. Feathers Comedy Competition, Kiry is a stand-up comic and full-time student pursuing whatever degree requires the least math. He grew up in the cold streets of Cleveland, Ohio. Not in a gangster kind of way, but literally — Cleveland has really cold winters. Kiry was working at a restaurant in 2011 when he suddenly left all the glamor behind. He felt like he couldn’t truly be himself ... A charismatic, witty, off-the-top comedian, whose hilarious punchlines have made him one of the best up-and-coming comics in Northern California. Kiry was named the winner of the 14th annual StandUp NBC competition in 2017 and has performed on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
