    Not The Gym Teacher at The Pride Center of New Jersey in Highland Park

    In preparation for the recording of “Not The Gym Teacher” in NYC, Kelli Dunham is performing at house concerts all around the Northeast. With special amazing guest Sammie James

    Everyone’s favorite ex-nun genderqueer nerd comic is back with a new show and the same hilarious confusion about daily life.

    Why doesn’t anyone think her diagrammed sentence tattoo is sexy?
    Why don’t people want to discuss comparative death rituals on the first date?
    Why does every high school student in the five boroughs think Kelli is their gym teacher?


    Kelli Dunham is the genderqueer ex-nun storytelling nurse comic so common in modern Brooklyn. Kelli has appeared on Showtime and the Discovery Channel, the Moth Mainstage, the Cinderblock Comedy Festival, the Risk podcast, the Gotham Storytelling Festival, and nationwide at colleges, prides, fundraisers and even the occasional livestock auction. Kelli was nominated as a 2105 White House Champion of Change (NOT under the current administration) for her work as the co-founder and producer of Queer Memoir, NYC’s longest-running most super earnest LGBT storytelling event.

    Kelli is the author of seven hilarious nonfiction books about very not humorous subjects (include kids’ guides to puberty) and recently helped set the Guiness World Record for longest comedy show/multiple performers.

    New York Mayor Bill DeBlasio once called Kelli a show off. To her face.
