With a background that ranges from being a bouncer with The Rolling Stones and The Who, a 25-year career in veterinary medicine & over 20-years of performing as a professional stand-up comedian; Kevin Fitzgerald is a true renaissance man.
Perhaps best known for his 10 seasons on Animal Planet's Emergency Vets, Kevin’s passion for making people laugh is surpassed only by his unwavering dedication to all creatures great and small. Kevin has appeared on The NBC Nightly News with Tom Brokaw, The Today Show with Matt Lauer, Discovery Channel’s Home Matters, and most recently CBS’s The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. He also hosts a weekly segment on CW2’s morning news show called Animal House, in which he keeps the public informed about pet and animal-related issues. His national radio appearances include The Howard Stern Show, as well as being featured on Paul Harvey’s The Rest of the Story.
As a comedian, Kevin has opened for such diverse and legendary performers as Bob Hope, Diana Ross, The Temptations, and The Neville Brothers. Despite maintaining a busy practice at Alameda East Veterinary Hospital in Denver, Kevin performs regularly in Denver and across the country. He believes that laughter is an incredibly important part of everyday life, and that nobody could ever laugh too much.
