Charleston Comedy Festival on Woolfe
Woolfe Street Playhouse is proud to host Jamie Kennedy and Reformed Whores this year.
Jamie Kennedy -Actor, producer, and comedian Jamie Kennedy just wrapped James Gray’s sci-fi epic Ad Astra, opposite Brad Pitt. His other recent work includes starring roles in the latest installment of the Tremors film franchise for Universal, as well as Riley’s Peak with Jon Voight, and the thriller, Spinning Man, opposite Guy Pearce and Pierce Brosnan. Prior, he appeared in Chris Carter’s (The X-files) Amazon drama pilot The After, and NBC’s medical dramedy, Heartbeat. He is also voicing multiple characters on the new Comedy Central animated series, Legends Of Chamberlain Heights, and portrayed legendary music manager Jerry Heller in the Lifetime movie Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge, & Michel’le. Jamie can also be seen performing his stand up show around the country. Jamie landed his big break when he was cast in Baz Luhrman’s Romeo + Juliet, alongside Leonardo DiCaprio as a punked-out rival to John Leguizamo. His career soon kicked into high gear as he co-starred in his breakthrough performance as Randy Meeks in Wes Craven’s Scream and its follow-up Scream 2. Jamie has worked alongside some of the biggest names in Hollywood like Steve Martin in Bowfinger and Greg Kinnear in the Oscar-nominated As Good As It Gets. In 2002, Kennedy created The Jamie Kennedy Experiment, which became the WB’s highest-rated show. Kennedy portrayed a number of wacky characters, but the audience’s favorite was Brad Gluckman, the white rapper from Malibu. In 2003, Kennedy brought Brad Gluckman to the hit film, Malibu’s Most Wanted. Along with those films mentioned above Jamie has had memorable roles in fan favorites like Three Kings directed by David O. Russell, Enemy of the State directed by Tony Scott, Boiler Room opposite Vin Diesel and over 190 episodes of television under his belt with networks that include CBS, WB, MTV, Comedy Central, Showtime, NBC, Fox, and VH1.
Reformed Whores – If Tenacious D and Dolly Parton got drunk and had a baby, you’d get the delightfully twangy & hilariously filthy musical comedy duo Reformed Whores! Southern bred, but NYC based, Katy Frame & Marie Cecile Anderson have been featured on IFC, PBS, CBS, and many other three letter networks. Their sophomore album “Don’t Beat Around the Bush” debuted in March 2016 on the top 20 iTunes comedy chart; and last summer the girls opened for their comedy idol “Weird Al” Yankovic!
