As a former recurring character on soaps such as Port Charles, The Young and the Restless and a few parts in movies, Kerri Pomarolli was attracting big hitters in the industry. She came to Hollywood searching out that one role that would make her famous but found compromising her faith was not worth a star on the Walk of Fame. One night after much prayer it was apparent that God had other plans for her; Pomarolli was to do stand up. She was led to her first gig at, in all places, the world-famous Hollywood Improv. Although she performed in front of a very secular crowd Pomarolli was the only performer asked to come back. That was 12 years ago, and Kerri has become one of "Hollywood’s Biggest Christian Spokespeople" ever since.
