Kevin Downey, Jr. was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan.

Kevin said he wanted to be a comedian, and the policeman suggested he move to New York. Kevin moved there three months later at age 20. Today, Kevin is a 24-year veteran of stand-up comedy. He performs at comedy clubs, Elks Lodges, dive bars, biker bars and bowling alleys, as well as on military bases for troops around the world.
