|As a passionate visionary, and observationalist, Keith Ellis, has managed to turn many forseen negatives in to
positives with his witty ways of looking at what life has to offer, he touches upon subjects with a magic that is
truly undeniable interesting and hilarious.
The youngest of two children Keith entertained his mother & father doing impressions of everyone he watched
on television. His impersonations were astounding. He could transform into Jimmy Stewart, Bill Cosby, Richard
Nixon and then turn around and do John Wayne and Maxwell Smart (Agent 86) along with a host of others.
Keith genius revealed itself publicly in elementary school where he dazzled the classmates who would pick on
him with his ability to transform effortlessly into characters to make them laugh with just a unusual remarks,
or a unexpected expression on his face with out a word said.
After graduating high school and attending college in Jackson, Michigan, Keith moved to Phoenix, Arizona, to
continue his education. Although he had no intention of pursuing comedy, those around him were certain that
is where he belonged. In fact, the comedian would never have stepped on stage had it not been for the
prodding of a friend. A simple bet with that friend led him to the stage at a comedy club, and Keith found
himself in an open-microphone competition without a script. The result? Keith placed second out of
approximately 16 competitors that night. “The owner asked me back, so I did.” He felt like a winner that night,
although the friend never paid the $100 bet.
From that day forth Keith has continued horning his comedic and acting skills, appearing in movies, print ads,
commercials and working comedy clubs and casino's across the country.
While comedy is his life ambition, the ??-year-old has many acting credits on his resume as well. He has been
cast in movies such as Waiting to Exhale, What Planet Are You From, Any Given Sunday, Twisted and Three
Kings. He has appeared alongside acting heavyweights George Clooney, Mark Wahlberg, Jamie Foxx and
Samuel Jackson. He has also appeared in several commercials on the west coast
Today, Ellis continues to reinvent himself as a comedian with the fast growing life changes:
His parents have always insisted that he stick to clean comedy material. That undertaking is now included in
his comedy mission: 100% Clean Comedy - Working toward a purpose to support, educate, inspire and
motivate. Having the chance to perform in front of his childhood friends will surely allow him to do just that.
