Since then, he's appeared on Def Comedy Jam (twice) and Show Time at the Apollo.

After moving to San Francisco, Kevin started a career in the Internet industry which lasted a whole year. In 2002 he was layed off and was convinced by a friend to go to an open mic. Influenced by Eddie Murphy's "RAW", Kevin decided to go to the open mic dressed in a purple leather jump suit......not a good idea. His first set was not very good.
Not trying to become the typical Asian comic Kevin strayed away from Korean accents based on their mothers'.....plus his mom is a honkey. He concetrated on developing his own style which has said to be very laid back and fresh. With his unique style and jokes, he caught the eyes of hollywood and was invited to the prestigious Montreal Comedy Festival.
Kevin has numerous television appearances which include Comedy Central's Premium Blend and Jimmy Kimmel Live. He is currently living in Los Angeles.
