Keristen ‘Big Kess’ Baker

A Comic’s Relief: Navigating the trials of life with humor

Keristen ‘Big Kess’ Baker realized the power of performing at an early age. Always the class clown, he took that love of entertaining from the classroom to the stage, to studying theater at IPFW, to 107.9, and ultimately to his own brand and business. 

Along this path of embodying his gift of entertaining, he navigated his life’s toughest challenges - racism, weight loss, single fatherhood and marriage at age 39. 

Keristen shares his story with both vulnerability and humor - a powerful combo!
