On The Verge Spotlight: Mandee McKelvey

Mandee McKelvey has lived one hell of a life, from growing up poor in South Carolina to becoming a widow in her 20s. Wait, it gets funnier! As one of the midwest's most acclaimed stand-up comedians, Mandee is revered for her ability to spin tragedy into comedy. Finding inspiration in her rural roots and her ill-timed anxiety, Mandee has been making audiences fall in love with her for years, then dumping them for being too clingy.

In Louisville, KY, Mandee produces the celebrated show Character Assassination at The Bard's Town Theatre, and is the co-producer and co-host of the storytelling show We Still Like You. Mandee has recently opened for Tig Notaro and Anthony Jeselnik, and in 2018, Thrillist named her one of the 50 best undiscovered comedians in America.
