Kaitlin Colombo (born 1986) is an American stand-up comedian, television personality, writer, and actress. She is perhaps best known for her brief but noteworthy audition for the fourth season of NBC's reality series Last Comic Standing, and for her stand-up comedy work in the field of gay rights activism.
Stand-up comedy career Edit
Colombo began her stand-up comedy career at the unusual age of 13. Her blonde, girl-next-door looks and precocious personality earned her the nickname "The Lolita of Comedy" from fellow comedian Jay Mohr at her inaugural stand-up performance.
Kaitlin, whose father is gay, has long been an activist for gay rights and assorted gay rights issues. To that end, she has been a featured stand-up performer on Rosie O'Donnell's R Family Vacations cruise lines.
Television appearances Edit
Colombo appeared in the brief-lived MTV series The Reality Show, hosted by comedian Andy Dick. Following her stint on this program, she auditioned for Last Comic Standing in the early summer of 2006. While Colombo was not accepted into the show's cast, her popularity among home and Internet viewers earned her a place in the show's "Last Comic Downloaded" web competition. Colombo succeeded in winning the initial round of the online competition -- whose goal was a live performance at the finale of the Last Comic Standing season -- but ultimately lost to comedians Theo Von and Josh Wolf.
Currently Colombo can be seen on various talk shows airing on the E! Network. She provides humorous commentary and banter in these shows, along with fellow comics and writers.
