A couple weeks back, Inland Northwest native Kelsey Cook hit the stage of The Tonight Show for the first time, delivering a set of stand-up comedy that touched on her family, her hometown and her various medical maladies: “I’m allergic to latex. Found that one out in a fun way.” Now the Cheney High and WSU grad is coming to headline four shows in Spokane, another step in her burgeoning career that includes hosting a podcast called Self-Helpless and opening one of Jim Norton’s national tours. Just be forewarned: Don’t get into a foosball game with her after the show, she’s a champion on the table. Seriously.
