Kimmy Zee is the production company of Winnipeg-based writer-producer-performer, Kim Zeglinski.
A busy teacher-counsellor, wife, and mother by day, Kim’s alter-ego, Kimmy Zee gets many glimmers of inspiration while nighttime bathing. She quickly jots down these stream-of-consciousness ramblings, sometimes using her husband as scribe, adds a lot of hyphens, calls a lot of creative friends, procrastinates a whole lot, and finally turns them into her quirky, honest, shoot-from-the-hip, signature-style monologues. The result is a knock-em-dead hour of poignant truth-telling, and laugh-out-loud fun.

Trivia: Kimmy Zee is formerly known as Kimbo the (dirty-girl) Clown, who produced the 2006 production of Waiting for Aidan. The company name changed when Zeglinski realized how many people actually hate clowns. Since Kimbo the Clown’s life was terminated during the live performance of Breast Friends, it seemed only suitable to retire the former production company name along with the character of Kimbo.
