Kevin Kash is a Brooklyn-born actor who has appeared in various film, television, and theater roles.

Film career[edit]

Kash has appeared in several films directed by Edward Burns, including small parts in Ash Wednesday and The Groomsmen. Reportedly, Burns was so impressed and amused by his improvised performance in Ash Wednesday that he not only gave him an extra scene in that film, but created a larger role especially for him in his next film, Looking for Kitty (The character's name is Kash's initials, KK).

Musical career[edit]

Kash was a founding member of the seminal New York City hardcore band "Adam-12", which was co-founded by notable New York graffiti writer Revs who, along with Kash, wrote the majority of the band's material; their 7", "Do Not Resuscitate", is a sought-after collector's item. Kevin Kash's songs have been covered by Box of Crayons and the Subway Serenader.

Comedy career[edit]

Kevin Kash was a founding member, along with playwright Frederick Stoppel (in whose work he regularly appears in productions at the Nuyorican Poets Café), of the sketch comedy team Third Rail Comedy, which helped launch the career of former The Daily Show correspondent Rob Corddry.
