A self-described "people person" Kevin Jordan claims he was once written up by a superior officer for being too nice. One of a crop of shorter-than-average officers allowed on the force when the department lowered its height standard to recruit more women and minorities, Kevin had trouble reaching the gas pedal of his patrol car, according to one of his ratings reports. Once when he drove the car without a partner, a citizen called the police station to report that a little kid had stolen a police car.

On stage Kevin Jordan really gets the audience going with tales of his former career but that is by no means his whole show. Kevin's version of "life with father" has his audience holding their sides and nodding in recognition in between guffaws. Kevin's unique view of the world grew from his designated seat in the family station wagon - facing backwards. That could be why the comedy business suits him so much better than that police uniform.
