Kimrie was born and raised in South Central Los Angeles. She is passionate about inspiring other girls and boys from her community, and telling her story as an LA native.
In addition to her role on Single Parents, Kimrie is a stand-up comedian who has toured nationally and currently has a residency at the Flappers Comedy Club in Los Angeles. She also writes for Kevin Hart´s LOL Network new comedy series, The Donors, and this fall, she'll be in #2MinutesofFame with Katt Williams and Jay Pharoah.

You can currently watch Kimrie on Single Parents, which is a comedy surrounding a group of single parents as they raise their 7-year-old kids and form a bond along the way. Created by Liz Meriwether and JJ Philbin, the show is a fun, relatable take on being a single parent while still maintaining a personal life outside of parenthood. Kimrie’s character “Poppy” is a charismatic, intelligent, funny, and free spirited business owner (Poppy owns “Poppy’s Wine-brary” — a wine bar and library). The series airs Wednesday nights at 9:30 PM ET on ABC ✨
