Comedy on the South Side

If you’ve watched Def Comedy Jam, Comicview, Comedy Central or Wanda Sykes’ Herlarious, chances are you were entertained by Chicago-based comedians Damon Williams and Kellye Howard. Both cut their teeth in comedy clubs here before the big screen. Kellye co-founded a sketch comedy trio, had several one-woman shows and appeared on the OWN Network’s “My Life is a Joke” special about female comics. Damon, who’s also an actor and newlywed, just hosted his 16th Annual Damon Williams New Year’s Eve comedy bash and can be heard each week on the nationally syndicated Tom Joyner Morning Show. Both will talk about breaking into comedy on the South Side.
