Kevin Flynn has thrilled audiences for years with his stand-up comedy performances having headlined at clubs and colleges across the country. Flynn’s career as a comedian took off after winning the Boston Comedy Riot in 1988, where he then began appearing on numerous comedy specials. He has since added several film and television credits to his name appearing in The Heartbreak Kid with Ben Stiller; Me, Myself and Irene with Jim Carrey; Osmosis Jones with Billy Murray, and Sex and the City.
After graduating from the University of Massachusetts where he was captain of the soccer team, Kevin went on to play three years of professional soccer in the Major Indoor Soccer League (MISL). Following his soccer career, Kevin transitioned from pro-athlete to professional sportscaster, host and entertainer. He covered World Cup Soccer for Fox Sports, ESPN and ABC. Flynn’s Sports Figure’s show on ESPN received the POLK Award for excellence in children’s programming.
In 1996, Kevin became the host of The Discovery Channel’s Go For It, an extreme outdoor adventure show where he swam with sharks, jumped out of airplanes and scaled dangerous peaks. The show led Kevin to create his one-man show Around the Kitchen Table, which won the “Best of Fest” at the Boston Comedy Festival and HBO’s prestigious U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen.
Along with continually performing his stand-up around the world, Kevin is also the co-founder and executive director of the non-profit Nantucket Comedy Festival which supports the children’s educational program Standup & Learn.
