|Keith Scott Markey is one of six children born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, the youngest son of Kay,
an author and queen of all trades who died suddenly of Pneumonia in 2003 and Joseph Sr., a now
retired Managing Director on Wall Street. He is also uncle to nine nieces and nephews.
|Keith’s first job was as the all American boy model for the cover of
“Learning Games for Threes and Fours: a Guide to Adult-Child Play.
He was paid with an Ice-Cream cone which he ended up dropping
on the sidewalk one minute later.
|From Kindergarten through 8th grade, Keith attended Brooklyn
Friends School (a private school in Downtown Brooklyn) where
they instilled a passion for the performing arts at a young age by
providing classes in movement, dance, vocal training and acting.
Keith then went on and graduated from the prestigious Poly Prep
Country Day School in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. Here Keith continued
his studies in theater through elective courses, as well as
featuring in an abundant amount of the performances and plays.
Other performance accomplishments included placing second in
the Shakespeare Monologue Competition two years in a row, won
the Byrnes Speaking Competition, and won the David Winder
Drama award his senior year for his contribution in the theatrical
arts at Poly Prep.
|He went to college at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield,
Connecticut, where he performed and co-wrote sketch comedy with
the Lambda Sitters. To their credit, they won two best comedy
awards and a best overall performance award at the Spring
Weekend skit competition over a four year span. Keith also
performed in a number of other performances as well as being
guest DJ and personality on 91.5 WHRT. He was also the only person
in school's (or maybe any school's) history to Rap his nomination
speech to be Class president, and then won in a landslide.
|After graduating from College, he moved back to NYC where he
worked for a large Financial Firm for a few years while continuing his
studies in acting and Improv.
|Keith then went on to perform in a bunch of off-Broadway,
and off-off Broadway shows, as well as some performances at
the UCB Theatre. He would also be seen DJing at bars and
clubs throughout Brooklyn and Manhattan on weekends.
Keith also filmed a commercial for Smith and Wollensky
Steakhouse as well as a National commercial for WebMD,
prior to moving out to Los Angeles, CA in late 2007.
|Keith now lives in Hollywood with his wife and Boston Terrier, Samuel Adams. Usually you can catch
him on any given day in Runyon Canyon; otherwise he is at home writing, doing workshops, hanging
out with friends or hopefully working….. To keep up on a life in progression, visit this site's News &
