Kenya Barris made the transition from reality show creator (with America’s Next Top Model) to successful screenwriter and sitcom showrunner. We’re delighted to welcome back to Montreal last year’s “Just For Laughs Comedy Writer of the Year” to deliver the JFL Keynote Address at ComedyPRO. With his hit TV show Black-ish nearing the magical 100-episode milestone, recent spin-off Grown-ish blossoming into a hit, and high-profile upcoming projects like the new Shaft reboot, Kenya is well-placed to offer up his outspoken observances and opinions to anyone who thinks they’re an expert in comedy.
