Weill Center Welcomes Comedian Kelly Kellz
HBO’s “Def Comedy” Comedian Kelly Kellz to Headline Juneteenth Event at the Weill Center in Partnership with Black-American Community Outreach
SHEBOYGAN, WI (May 24, 2022) – The Weill Center for the Performing Arts, a 1,150-seat event venue in Downtown Sheboygan today announced comedian Kelly Kellz will perform on Sunday, June 19 at 7 p.m. This event is presented in partnership with Sheboygan’s Black-American Community Outreach group as part of its 2nd Annual Juneteenth Celebration. The comedy show at the Weill Center will follow a familyfriendly day-long celebration of music, games, vendors, and resources at Kiwanis Park.
“Juneteenth is a very important day in this community and should be in every community. American history consists of the events that occurred for black people as well. Oftentimes, black people are viewed negatively, and we want to show this community positivity, showcase black excellence, celebrate our American heritage, and unity within our community,” stated Toni White, Vice President of Black-American Community Outreach and COO of WRTP BIG STEP in Milwaukee.
Mrs. Kelly “Kelly Kellz” Davis always dreamed of changing the world with laughter. Born and raised in Milwaukee, WI, Davis, a certified K-12 teacher left the classroom in 2009 to pursue comedy full time. She provides comedic relief from the realities of the lives of Black women and families, including the every-day challenges of juggling motherhood, marriage, and career. Kelly Kellz has shared the stage with legendary comedians like the late civil rights activist Dick Gregory, radio personality Rickey Smiley, Mike Epps, and Katt Williams.
