Kelly Buttermore



Kelly Buttermore has been performing improv and sketch in New York since 2003. She can currently be seen performing with Justin Peters in the appropriately named duo, From Justin to Kelly. The two perform regularly at the Magnet, and have appeared at numerous festivals in 2014, including the District Improv Festival in Washington, DC, the Providence Improv Festival and Duofest in Philadelphia. Kelly has also been a member of resident ensembles at the Magnet since 2006, including, most recently, the house team Horses – a two-time selection of the Chicago Improv Festival - from 2011 to 2014. With Kate Emswiler, she has written and performed two super fun sketch shows in 2014, “Dearly Beloved and Everyone Else” and “Vacation Town.” She is excited to be a writer for Reductress (, the first and only fake women's magazine. She is also an instructor at the Magnet, where she teaches Level One and has the most fun ever doing it.
