Kerri Pomarolli has a diverse background in comedy. With experience in Sketch, TV, Stand-UP and Speaking, she stays open to opportunities in a variety of areas of show business. After moving to L.A. in her early twenties, she soon started to find work in all kinds of areas. Now a mother of two, she continues to bring the laughs and shows no signs of slowing down.

Specifically we talk about:

  • Learning improv and sketch with the Groundlings and Second City
  • Appearing in over 25 sketches on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno
  • Being married to a comedian
  • Having her babies on stage (with her) sometimes
  • Working with people ahead of where you are to get better
  • The benefits of groups like CCA and NSA
  • Why you should always be nice to the folks in hair and makeup
  • Taking classes from Judy Carter
  • How feedback from a manager at the Improv helped fuel her drive
  • Advice for beginning comedians
