Kelsey Cook is the daughter of an International Yo-Yo Champion and a Professional Foosball player, which made for a humor-filled life at a young age.
Kelsey made her late night debut on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon in March, as well as her Comedy Central debut on This is Not Happening in April. Her other television appearances include AXS TV Presents Gotham Comedy Live, Punchline on FOX, Laughs on FOX, Uproarious on FUSE and Greatest Party Story Ever on MTV.
She has spent the last three years touring in over 60 cities across the country with Jim Norton. Kelsey splits her time between Los Angeles and New York where she is a paid regular at The Comedy Cellar, The Stand, Gotham Comedy Club, New York Comedy Club and The Laugh Factory. She is also a regular guest on the Jim and Sam Show on SiriusXM.
Kelsey also co-hosts the Self-Helpless podcast with fellow comedians, Taylor Tomlinson and Delanie Fischer. It can regularly be found on the iTunes Top Comedy Charts and has featured guests like Brian Regan, Bert Kreischer, Nikki Glaser and Gad Elmaleh.
When Kelsey isn’t doing stand up, she is a probably at a local bar, hustling people who don’t know she is a World Champion foosball player.
