Kirby Howell-Baptiste

Kirby Howell-Baptiste is an actor and writer that proudly hails from North London. She began acting at The Anna Scher Theatre, at the age of 10, when her Mother thought it best for her to interact with things other than Barbie dolls.

Since moving to Los Angeles, Kirby has appeared in House of Lies (Showtime), Comedy Bang! Bang! (IFC), and Six Guys One Car (Comedy Central).

You can see Kirby performing on the 3rd Wednesday of every month at UCB Sunset with her Maude Team; The Royal Bermuda Whiskey Club, and on Harold Night at UCB Franklin. If that's just not enough, Kirby also performs at various indie shows with teams including Essence, an all black, all female group, and Potato Potato.

Follow Kirby on twitter @KirbyHBee, where she infrequently says things.

Kirby is delighted to say that she has been a member of UCBLA since 2012.
