Actress and Comedienne Kym Whitley Joins Caroline Rhea and Carol Liefer for "Momtourage" Comedy Tour

Known for her larger than life personality and hilarious guest appearances in movies and television shows alike, actress and comedienne Kym Whitley continues to spread laughter and insights of being a new mom with projects including comedy shows, web series and docu-series on OWN.

Taking her humorous insights out on the road, Kym is teaming up with comedienne Caroline Rhea (Sabrina, The Teenage Witch, The Caroline Rhea Show) and comedienne/writer Carol Liefer (Seinfeld, Saturday Night Live) for “Momtourage,” a comedy tour with the trio sharing stories and their motherly wisdom via humor.

Momtourage Tour Dates:
Aurora, Illinois: Paramount Theatre - October 18, 2013
Flint, Michigan: The Whiting - October 19, 2013

Armed with first-hand experience – Kym teamed up with NickMom on a hilarious new web series, “It’s Kymplicated,” that sheds light on everyday issues mothers face and to inspire them to find balance with work, life and family. The series stars Kym Whitley in the role of mom/real estate agent Kym Kennedy as she juggles work with running her suburban Chicago household consisting of her teenage daughter, young son, overbearing live-in mother-in-law, and her pilot husband who is always traveling.

Kym’s real-life story of becoming a mother is documented on her show “Raising Whitley” on OWN.

During the first season of Kym’s docu-series “Raising Whitley,” cameras followed as she embarked on the audition of a lifetime, being a new mother. For many years, Kym mentored a troubled young girl, but she never imagined she'd get a call from the hospital saying, "Your baby is ready." Kym’s mentee exited the maternity ward leaving only Kym’s contact information. With less than an hour to make a life-changing decision – and to do a lifetime of soul-searching – Kym chose to become a mother. The series premiere attracted 1.2 million viewers, making it the fifth largest premiere in the history of the OWN network.

The hit show is returning with all-new episodes on OWN in early 2014. New episodes will showcase Kym’s journey as a first-time mom as a working actress, planning Joshua’s christening and finding him a proper spiritual outlet and Kym hosts her “milestone” birthday bash with friends, family and many recognizable faces from film and television.

Kym’s current comical roles on television include the voice of “Honeybee” on “Black Dynamite: The Animated Series” on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim, “Mrs. Margaret Jensen” on ABC Family’s “Baby Daddy,” and Charmaine on BET’s “Let’s Stay Together.”
