Ky Krebs

Ky Krebs is an Austin, TX-based stand-up comedian whose queer perspective and sharp wit delve into an absurd reality that manages to be both dark and playful. His self-produced, self-titled album debuted at #2 on the iTunes Comedy Charts. He is the cohost of the podcast Extra Salty which dives deep into resentment and why people hold onto it or how they manage to let resentment go.
