Kahle is from South Carolina for the most part, though he doesn't have much of an accent. He's been Seymour in Little Shop of Horrors, Puck in A Midsummer Night's Dream, Barry in The Boys Next Door, and a few other plays you may have heard of and a number of films of which you most certainly have not. Most recently, Kahle co-wrote the lyrics and music for Sudden Death!, as well as appearing as Todd, aka “the guy who pretends to die.”
Kahle has met Emmy Award winners and is vaguely familiar with the Oscars. Kahle lives in Burbank and is currently single but not looking to date right now because of some things going on in his personal life, like some really personal things that don't need to be mentioned here like his problems with managing money, his underwhelming work ethic, or his desperate need to mature. All sorts of things he should have learned by now, but didn't.
