About Kym Whitley at DC Comedy Loft
Kym Whitley is one of those rare individuals to whom the phrase “renaissance woman” might be applied. These days, the majority of people know her either from her frequent appearances on Larry David’s groundbreaking HBO series Curb Your Enthusiasm or from the Tom Joyner Morning Show, a nationally syndicated radio program. But that’s only the tip of the iceberg. Kym is actually a comedienne, actress, activist, author and — perhaps most importantly — a mother.
Her first acting job was in the Shelley Garrett play "Beauty Shop," which started in L.A. and wound up doing a national tour. Her TV career began a few years later, in 1992, but really took off during the second half of the decade. In the mid-to-late ‘90s, Kym appeared in "Married with Children," "Moesha" and "The Wayans Brothers Show" (among others). Just last year, she was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award for her portrayal of “Big Candi” in "The Bay, The Series." Kym is also no stranger to the big screen. Her first big role was as “Auntie Suga” in the 2000 film "Next Friday." Since then, she has appeared in "The Nutty Professor," "Along Came Polly," "College Road Trip" and dozens of other films. She also voiced the character “Melonee” in 2011’s Rango.
