San Francisco, California

KML was founded in 1997 by a group of comedians with day jobs who were looking for a home to create insightful comedic work they simply were not seeing produced in San Francisco. Since KML’s first show in a 25-seat converted Mission District office space on Valentine’s Day 1997, the group has worked with over 400 Bay Area artists to create exciting original work for local audiences and national outlets. Today, KML is hailed by the San Francisco Chronicle as “the closest thing we have to Second City” and heralded as “an orgy of comic genius” by Comedy Central. KML has created original work for HBO, is a two-time winner of the “Best of the Fringe” Award at the SF Fringe Festival and was voted “Best Comedy Group” by the San Francisco Bay Guardian.
