With razor sharp wit and a charm once described as “ineffable,” Tooky (rhymes with cookie) Kavanagh speaks her mind with honesty, charisma, and edge. After just a few years on the scene, Tooky has already performed in New York, Denver, CO, and all over New England.

Her standup credits include: December 2018 Comic-In-Residence at The Comedy Studio; The 2017 Women In Comedy Festival; Thunderfest 2017; The 2017 Boston Comedy Festival; Boston Comedy Chicks; The 2017 Boston Comedy Arts Festival; headlining It Ain’t Over ‘Til It’s Dover; headlining Stand-Up Thursdays at John Harvard’s; co-producing Token: Rethink What Comedy Can Be at ImprovBoston; featuring at The Producer’s Club; and Comic Sit-In at The Riot Theater. 

She’s opened for Myq Kaplan and Eugene Mirman, and has performed on lineups alongside comedy notables Gary Gulman, Jessica Kirson, and Alingon Mitra, to name a few. In March of 2018 and 2019, she was selected to perform on the Comedy Central UP NEXT audition showcase, and in both April 2018 and February 2019, she was selected to audition for the prestigious Montreal Just For Laughs festival. As an actor, she’s a regular cast member of the Redo Crew for Starstruck: Close Encounters of the Awkward Kind, starred as The Humbled Hobo in a 48 Hour Film Project film,  is a featured character in the short film Woman Unknown, and is a recurring character in the upcoming web series, Paid For By.  

She can be seen regularly at Boston-based institutions such as The Comedy Studio, ImprovBoston, and Laugh Boston. Also, she's the one who described her own charm as “ineffable,” but it's still true!
