In April 2018, Kiry Shabazz made his network late night debut on NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Kiry grew up in the cold streets of Cleveland, Ohio. Not in a gangster kind of way, but literally -- Cleveland has really cold winters. Kiry was working at a restaurant in 2011 when he suddenly left all the glamor behind. He felt like he couldn’t truly be himself. A charismatic, witty, off-the-top comedian, whose hilarious punchlines have made him one of the best up-and-coming comics in Northern California. After shows he’s often told "your comedy changed my life." Which he can never be certain is a good or bad thing, sending him into a whirlwind of paranoia and insecurity. Kiry won the World Series of Comedy Competition and is the winner of the 2018 Stand Up NBC and also toured on the Stand Up NBC Comedy Tour.
