Second Helping: Two Dead Lovers Dead Funny at Caveat NYC
Nonbinary comedian Kelli Dunham grew up the youngest child in a large rural midwestern US farm family that taught self-reliance as a religion but their life tooks some unexpected turns. Accidental enemy of Mother Teresa. Two-time widow before age 40. Victim of an exploding knee replacement. Kelli (the former Sister Mercy) is learning the limits of DIY-A (Do It Yourself Alone) approach to life just how you'd expect from a queer ex-nun: the hard way. Part stand-up comedy, part sit-down tragedy with love and body fluids in the cracks in between.

Kelli spent all of August performing Second Helping in the basement of a gay bar at the Edinburgh Fringe. She was featured on BBC-4, BBC Scotland, the Sunday Times and even performed an excerpt from Second Helping as part of an online forum on death with dignity hosted by Glasgow's Friends At The End and MSP Rona McKay.

ABOUT KELLI Kelli Dunham is the nonbinary nurse ex-nun polyamorous storytelling comedian so common in modern Brooklyn. Kelli has appeared on Showtime and the Discovery Channel, PBS Stories From the Stage, the Moth Mainstage, Getting Curious with Jonathan Van Ness, the Cinderblock Comedy Festival, the Women in Comedy Festival, and nationwide at colleges, prides, fundraisers and even the occasional livestock auction. Kelli's writing has been featured on Autostraddle, XOJane, HuffPost Personal, The New Republic, Time, Thought Catalog, Lady Science and NPR and Kelli is the author of seven hilarious nonfiction books about very not-hilarious topics.

Former NYC Mayor Bill DeBlasio once called Kelli a "show off" to her face
