Born in Sudan, Khartoum, Kym E. Whitley is funny, talented, and driven. These are just a few of the qualities that define quadruple-threat actress, producer, director and stand-up comedienne Kym E. Whitley. Proving she isn’t just another pretty face, Kym created and co-hosted her own evening talk show on BET entitled “Oh Drama!” These same qualities have made her an in-demand player, starring alongside some of Hollywood’s elite in such box office hits as “Fun With Dick and Jane”, Along Came Polly”, “The Perfect Man”, “Deliver Us From Eva” and “Next Friday”.
After a scene stealing run as the hilarious, wisecracking secretary in the UPN comedy series “Sparks”, Whitley became a staple on television guest-starring on such popular shows as the breakout hit “Grey’s Anatomy”, HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm”, Lifetime’s “Missing”, Disney’s “That’s So Raven”, ABC’s “My Wife And Kids”, UPN’s “Love Inc.” & “The Parkers” and most recently the underground smash “The Boondocks” on the Cartoon Network.
In addition to her film and television appearances, Kym performs side-splitting stand-up routines weekly at “Whacked Out Wednesdays” comedy night at Sierra’s Café in Studio City, CA with her “partner in laughs” Buddy Lewis. With all this talent, it comes as no surprise that Whitley’s career continues to flourish with several upcoming television and movie projects. Due out this summer, she will co-star with Vivica A. Fox in the film “The Salon”, and appear in the new ABC comedy series “What About Brian” from acclaimed director/producer J.J. Abrams. Simultaneously, Whitley also owns and operates Kwick Whit Productions and has several projects in development.
