Profile Bio Text
Kerri grew up in show biz, the daughter of radio legend Casey Kasem, and his first wife, Linda, a Republican fund raiser. Growing up in Hollywood, Kerri insists she`s wanted to act ever since she was able to walk. Having first performed by herself, she was quick to recruit younger brother Mike, and sister Julie into her plays and parodies. Kerri was both the director and costumer for these family playlets dressing up her siblings and feeding them their lines. After graduating high school, Kerri took a slight detour, but one typical of her nature. She packed her belongings into her first car, took off to Santa Cruz, California, and grabbed a gig as a bungee-jumping instructor! But once again, show biz beckoned and Kerri headed back to L.A. and some serious professional training. That training included an acting course at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, from which she graduated, improv classes at the Comedy Connection, scene study with Tracy Roberts, and vocal training from Robert Edwards and Peggy Coburn. Just to cover all the bases Kerri also attended and graduated from the Academy of Radio Broadcasting.
Kerri got to use all that training in various film productions, commercials, and live theater. But it was when she joined brother Mike at MTV-Asia, that things exploded for her. She found her niche, hosting became her passion. She was an instant celebrity overseas, and she got to live in Singapore and travel far and wide doing specials and remote broadcasts in countries like India, the Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia, and Bangladesh. Kerri hosted and/or co-hosted with her brother Mike many MTV shows including string of live concerts with the biggest names in music. Then, when Mike hit the 4-year mark overseas, he got homesick and the twosome flew home. Back in the States, Kerri picked up a new MTV show called "Senseless Acts of Video". The show was ideal for Kerri because she not only got to host, but indulge her craving for big thrills like skydiving, dirt bike riding, street bike riding, snow-boarding and her beloved bungee-jumping. Kerri has also done several projects in tandem with Mike, including the foreign market version of "Americas Funniest Home Videos" for Vin Di Bona Productions and interstitials for AMC-American Movie Classics.
Kerri currently has two syndicated radio shows, as well as co-hosting mornings in Las Vegas from 5am-9am on am840 KXNT "Alan Stock and Kerri Kasem." The two syndicated radio shows are called "National Lampoons Comedy Countdown," where she and co-host Kent Emmons countdown the 40 funniest bits in the country every week. And the other is called "Racing Rocks," with Riki Rachtman. Kerri also hosts a live mortgage show for KLSX in Los Angeles called, "The Solomon Free Money Hour." In addition to the radio shows she`s the host of a new TV show called "The Rub" on SiTV and Spike TV`S "Ultimate Knockouts 3" for the UFC. Kerri also hosted "Coming Attractions" on the E! Network for a year. Kerri just completed her first appearance on "Hannity and Colmes" as a political commentator. To relax and unwind Kerri spends time with her horses, she`s an avid horseback rider. She also spends time riding her Motorcycles, whether they`re dirt or street. You`ll also find Kerri at the movies or at the nearest Karaoke Bar belting out her favorite 80`s songs or show tunes.
