In addition to Kerr's work as a publicist, lyricist, and writer, she is also well known for her work in the field of comedy. A founding member of the famed improv comedy company, the L.A. Groundlings, Kerr founded her own comedy organization, the Orange County Crazies, who has been providing both sketch and improvisational comedy to the community of Orange County, California since 1990. As a result of Kerr teaching improv and sketch comedy, she penned Build to Laugh: How to Construct Sketch Comedy With the Fast and Funny Formula, and “Who’s There? How to Create, Develop and Interpret Original Characters,”—the sketch book is used as a training manual at Second City in Chicago. It is also used by numerous comedy organizations throughout the country. She is also known for her work as a producer, writer, and director for live stage productions.

Kerr, who has written sketch comedy for the past 35 years, is the head writer for the Crazies, and its key instructor for the Crazies school. In the past 35 years alone, Kerr has written more than 450 original sketches. A member of ASCAP, and Women In Film, Kerr has also written, produced, and directed a full-scale musical comedy and wrote and performed in her own sketch/improv one-woman show.

In the early 90’s, Kerr was named along with Disney’s Michael Eisner in Orange Coast Magazine as one of Orange County's Top 10 Most Sensational” People. In 2019, she was given the coveted “Helena Modjeska Cultural Legacy Award” for her lifetime achievements in comedy.

She regards “Charlie’s Notes,” as her most important work to date.

She is the mother of three and grandmother of six.
