Kim Kerley, having spent much of her teens homeless, Kim Dayoc has seen things in life that many never see. She's chosen to seek and find the funny from those situations. A keen observer of life's crazy conditions, her comedy comes from real life. Kim has been performing stand-up comedy for over 25 years. She has traveled extensively in the U.S. and abroad, including an inspiring stint with Armed Forces Entertainment. Kim also shines as a comedic actor. She has acted in movies, with the comedy group, Laff Stock, and Dramatic Diva Productions, putting on community plays in the San Antonio area in addition to cameo appearances on a few local films. Kim also performed comedy on The View, The Mike Huckabee Show, and has over 10 million views on Dry Bar Comedy. She now spotlights her act with her lifestyle brand: Team Umbrella Drink. Kim’s skills go beyond comedy as she helmed San Antonio’s number 2 drive time morning radio show. After being told she was one of the fastest rising women on the radio, she was fired. The fall from radio fame and a paycheck had her seeking miracles for small things like money for food, mortgage and those teenage girls she was raising. It was during this time so many miracles did come her way, and she began to document and eventually write and speak about her journey. Kim was published in When Heaven Touches Earth and is currently working on a book about life and miracles! Kim sidelines as a high school counselor with hopes for helping others find the spark in their lives. Through comedy, counseling, writing and speaking, Kim stays busy sharing her life and journey. It is her belief we can all share joy, laughter and the part of us that literally makes us shine
