Born and raised in Oakland, CA, Kirk has had a variety of experiences. Life in the inner city, prep school in the suburbs, college life in the south and even a successful four-year stint in the United States Marine Corps. He blends all of his life experiences together into a storytelling brand of comedy that has been described by some as Bill Cosby with a Richard Pryor twist.
Having already opened for such stars as Paul Mooney, Bobby Slayton, Tommy Davidson and Don "D.C." Curry, Kirk has been labeled one of the Bay Areas fastest rising young stars by his peers. He even gained recognition as one of the top 10 comics in the Bay Area by Karma 777 Film works & Productions.
In addition to Kirk's comical talent, he is also a freelance writer and voice impressionist. He was nominated for Outstanding Voice Performance by the National Academy of Video Game Testers and Reviewers Corporation (N.A.V.G.T.R) for doing the voice of "Toe Jam" in the SEGA game Toe Jam & Earl III: Mission to Earth.
