Kelly Haramis rediscovered her love of improv and theatre after a 12-year stint as a journalist (6 of those years at the Chicago Tribune). In addition to her Theatre Arts minor from Penn State, Kelly is a graduate of the Second City Conservatory as well as the iO Chicago Training Center. She has appeared on such stages as the DeMaat Theater, Chicago Improv Festival, Playground Theater, Studio Be, Urban Stages (New York, NY–as part of the Del Close Marathon) and Firehouse Theatre (Ithaca, NY).
