Born in Dearborn, Michigan, Kerri Pomarolli found her comedic calling at the tender age of 2. She figured out how to tell jokes and became addicted to making people laugh. (If only her parents would have pushed her into math instead!) Kerri's Southern Alabama mother had different plans for her and enrolled her immediately in dance classes where Kerri found a way to express her other talent. She was well on her way to becoming a professional dancer when difficult obstacles surfaced. At age 11 Kerri was diagnosed with Scoliosis and went through extensive and painful treatment, culminating in a spinal fusion surgery that placed two metal rods in her back, allowing her to live a normal life. Her dreams for a ballet or dance career, however, were over. Devastated but determined, she decided to try acting. Kerri got the phone book and called the local theater company and said: "Hello, my name is Kerri Pomarolli. I'm 11 and I want to be an actress." She auditioned and was cast in the lead role of Mary Tilford in Lillian Hellman's "The Children's Hour." This experience gave her the theater bug and the rest is history. She's appeared in more than 75 stage productions coast to coast, including off Broadway in NYC at the Lambs Theater. Other theater productions include "Leader of the Pack" in NYC, "Godspell" in Los Angeles, and the musicals "EVITA" and "Robber Bridegroom" in Detroit.
