Kelly founded Kimball Studio in 1997. As a comedian, Janine trained at the studio. DiTullio and Kimball went on to become writing partners, creating and producing for NBC, CBS, FOX, ABC, & WB. Throughout this time, they stayed committed to fostering the community at Kimball Studio. Working in television, it became clear to Kelly how acting and auditioning for TV and film could be vastly improved. Janine was seeing how groups of comedians were stronger than the individual. Together they drew from their insider knowledge and their core values to develop a curriculum of skills & practice that helps actors & writers in the real world.
