Birth Name




Kim Coles is best known for her zany characters and outrageous sense of humor. Kim got her start as the runner-up in the Big Beautiful Woman pageant in Atlantic City, New Jersey. She rode her beauty pageant success into a plus-size modeling career. She, then, began performing stand-up comedy and her show biz career really took off.

She landed the gig of warm-up comedian for The Cosby Show. From there she appeared on several stand-up shows. She, also, worked as an opening act for several popular musicians (Luther Vandross, Bobby Brown, The O'Jays).

Her big break arrived when she was cast by the Wayans brothers in the sketch show, In Living Color. After she left that show, she appeared in Living Single.

Kim has continued to work steadily, appearing in sit-coms, reality shows, and game shows. She is a successful author and playwright.
