Kelsie Huff is one of Chicago's up and coming stand up comedians, performing at venues such as Zanies, Chicago's Laugh Factory, Second City, and throughout the suburbs. Huff's humor has "an infectious joyousness that makes you happy to be alive" and she "makes confident choices and creates loud, defined characters that are both unbearable and hilarious". Kelsie has been described as a "Midwestern American Intangible Cultural Treasure" who makes the audience feel as though they have been transported from a dark comedy club to a late night slumber party.
Kelsie is a senior cast member of Comedy Sportz 100 Proof Comedy, produces the kates, and teaches Feminine Comique, an all female stand up class produced by Tight Five Productions.
Like most Chicago comedians Kelsie studied at iO and Second City. Huff then wrote and produced her first one woman show, HUFFS. The show was given a 4 out of 4 review from Boulder’s Daily Camera, was a "Don’t Miss" in Time Out Chicago, received the Camera Eye Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role (Comedy), and won the Boulder Fringe Venue Encore Award.
Kelsie's second one woman show, BRUISER: Tales from a Traumatized Tomboy received 4 out of 4 stars in the Chicago Stage Review and won Best Solo Performance of 2011.
