Versatile actor, irreverent comedian, and successful entrepreneur, Keary is the friend you always invite to the party in spite of yourself. Charismatic, thoughtful, sensitive and at the same time abhorrent, loud, and sardonic, Keary is like a plate of stale french fries, both unpleasant and irresistible.
Driven by his irrepressible passion for stand-up comedy and acting, Keary founded Creative Veins Performing Arts in 2017. An outspoken critic of self-indulgent artists, supporters of the status quo, and those who exude mediocrity; he’s likened to a tenacious cockroach that just won’t die, but to those who work with him, his friends, family, and students, he’s recognized as a highly intelligent professional and passionate mentor with uncompromising standards. If you ask him, “The truth is probably somewhere in the middle. I see myself as a lion thinning the herd. Not everyone can do this work and if you can’t, you need to go do something you can do. The performing arts can’t be purely about self-expression; because they require an audience, people must give you their time, part of their life, so you owe them something. If you can’t provide value, then you need to go and let someone who can take your place.”
A long-time horror fan, his favorite role to date was playing Jason Voorhees in the Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights XXV spots. "I didn't have any lines, you can't see my face, but growing up Jason was my favorite slasher. Strapping on that iconic mask was a dream come true." Recently Keary has starred in Killer Couples, Murder Calls, and the independent films Bronco, directed by Tyler Falbo, and In This City, directed by Paul DeChant. He's also a writer, director, producer, and currently working on book about his revolutionary stand-up curriculum. "I'd prefer to just tell people I'm an actor or a comedian depending on the job I’m doing at the time. I hate hyphens and would prefer to let my work speak for itself than to go around trying to impress people with bullshit titles." His hilarious animated short, T80Ns, is currently working its way through the festival circuit and will be screening at Florida Supercon in Miami this July.
