After leaving the badge behind, Kevin began headlining at comedy clubs and corporate events across the nation. He’s performed in all 50 states and has done over 100 USO shows for every branch of the military.

Debi Gutierrez has become quite the expert on life and relationships. It was during a dinner one night that she realized her marriage wasn’t what it used to be. From that moment on she decided to rebuild the bond she’d lost with her husband and along the way, she learned enough stuff to start a 45-minute comedy show about relationships.
Originally, Gutierrez was a high school teacher, which could explain her amazing ability to connect with the audience and pass on her knowledge of marriage. Her unique style doesn’t alienate men and it speaks to couples of all ages.
In the 17-years Debi’s been doing this, she’s performed all over the world and makes regular appearances at some of the country’s top comedy clubs. She’s even been dubbed, “The Mommycomic.”
Besides comedy, Debi has dabbled as an actress and TV host. You may remember seeing her in an eBay commercial dancing through a freeway traffic jam. She starred in a pilot sitcom called BLISS as well. Gutierrez hosted, HIDDEN AGENDA, a series on the Gameshow Network where couples tried to convince their partners to complete a series of challenges for money without divulging they’re on a gameshow. She also just completed her 5th season as the host of KCET-TV’s Emmy-winning parenting show, A PLACE OF OUR OWN.
And her comedy has been seen on dozens of networks including Style, E!, NBC, Showtime, Comedy Central and more! And she’s also got a comedy CD out now titled, HE’S NOT YOUR GIRLFRIEND, where most of the material is taken straight from her own missadventures in dating.
