Keith Kleon Norman, professionally known as Kleon da Comedian, has seen a meteoric rise on social media with his playboy-ish charm and hilarious skits recalling stories of his past deeds to his “on phone” friend ‘Tony’. Not to mention the female catered “how to” videos. After thirteen years in comedy, Kleon’s time has come.
Through clever stories and his “off the cuff” humor, Kleon has managed to build a cult-like following of fans that anticipate viewing his videos on social media and his appearances in comedy clubs and theaters in their city.
Kleon has shared the stage with some of the most renowned comedians in the country such as Bill Bellamy at the Met Theater in Philadelphia, King of Comedy legend DL Hughley at the Fox Theater in Atlanta and the ‘Queen of Comedy’ herself, Sommore, at the Texas Arena in Dallas to name a few. Furthermore, he has graced the stage with veterans like Joe Clair, Talent, Sid Davis, Rodney Perry, Damon Williams and others.
With nearly three hundred thousand followers on Facebook and another three hundred thousand on Instagram, steadily increasing by the day, Kleon’s national fan base is growing immensely. After selling out comedy clubs in Cleveland, Chicago and Baltimore, not to mention packed venues with Covid restrictions, it is fair to say that Kleon da Comedian has arrived.
Additionally, in 2010, Kleon won the ‘Warner Brothers Short Film Contest’ for his film, “Standing in the Mountains.” That opportunity provided the momentum for the self-taught film editor, videographer, director and producer to embrace his multi-talented abilities. In 2012, he independently produced the film “Bluffin”, which garnered much small scale success with over 20,000 copies sold by old-fashioned guerrilla marketing, word of mouth.
