Tooky Kavanagh

With razor sharp wit and a charm once described as "ineffable," Tooky (rhymes with cookie) Kavanagh speaks her mind with honesty, charisma, and edge. After just a few years on the scene, Tooky -- an alumnus of the ImprovBoston Comedy School! -- has already performed all over New England, New York, and very recently, Denver. She's also performed on lineups with standup comedy notables Gary Gulman, Alingon Mitra, and Eugene Mirman. She can be seen regularly at venues such as The Comedy Studio, ImprovBoston, and Laugh Boston, and will be featured in the upcoming web series, "Paid For By." Also, she's the one who described her own charm as "ineffable," but it's still true!
