After 20 years of bringing humor into her psychology practice as a Ph.D. Clinical Psychologist, Kiki decided it was time to pursue comedy in its own right. After making a bet that led her to her first open mic night in the summer of 2022, she experienced quick success and was booking official gigs after only three open mics! Quickly becoming a favorite in the Triangle, Kiki is known for her hilarious observations of human behavior, her outspoken love of being naked, and for working out her emotional issues in a group therapy session with the audience.
