Kevin Bartini is a veteran NYC comedian entering his 25th year in show business! He is a published comedy writer, a classically trained Shakespearean actor and UCB trained improviser. He was awarded "2003 Club Pick Comic of the Year" by the Las Vegas Comedy Festival and won 2nd Place in the 2011 Gilda's Club Laugh Off Comedy Competition .
In 2008 he was discovered by Jon Stewart and hired to warm up audiences at both the Daily Show with Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report. In the next eight years he would go on to become one of the most successful Audience Warm-Up Comics in television. At last count he has done warm-up for nearly thirty productions!
Long before becoming a comedian, Kevin toiled the boards in high-school, community, and summer stock theater. He returned to the acting after over a decade in stand up, starring in a national tour of You Say Tomato, I Say Shut Up , followed up by four off-Broadway plays.
His on-camera credits include multiple episodes of ABC's hidden camera show What Would You Do? as well as the recurring roll of Billy Jones on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Look out for him later this summer on HBO's And Just Like That.
