Award-Winning Actor and Comedian Kevin "DOTCOM" Brown Joins The City Tutors
By: The City Tutors
Prior to The City Tutors, Brown successfully navigated several incredible careers. He was a former winner of the 15th annual "SCREEN ACTORS GUILD" for his portrayal of "Dotcom," in NBC's "30 ROCK." As a stand-up comedian, Brown performed and was prominently featured on several top TV shows including MTV's "Human Giant," NBC's "Last Comic Standing," BET's "Comic View," as well as 106th & Park, and Nickelodeon's "Nick Moms."
Brown is a graduate of The City College of NY (CCNY) where he received a B.A. in Black Studies and is currently pursuing his M.A. in the Study of the Americas and The Center for Adult Education of CCNY. He's an experienced entrepreneur, promoter, producer, author, and philanthropist. He has held high executive roles in several nonprofit organizations and throughout that time has been guiding and mentoring young people.
"I took early retirement during the pandemic and decided to go back to college. I wanted to get my degree and share some of my life experiences with the young people at my school and in our community. Hopefully provide some mentorship and any support that I could. I was very blessed and fortunate that my career has already been tremendous, but after catching COVID in 2020, my priorities seemed to shift. My desires are to be of service and be a positive influence on society. I was lucky that The City Tutors turned out to be aligned with my goals," Brown reflects.
"Kevin understands the challenges that students face. He's interested in creating a frictionless experience and bulldozing barriers so that students can move toward their destination. In that way, he is exactly the kind of person we need. We see ourselves as a hub that removes the friction and introduces equitable access to key resources for success. For us as a team, what a burst of confidence to have access to someone so knowledgeable and successful. He can look at things in a new light and validate our actions. He inspires us to do more and bring in new ideas. He's the missing piece," states Executive Director Garri Rivkin.
