Kellett takes ‘Knots’ to the stage

South Beach Comedy Festival to debut play

“How I Met Your Mother” scribe Gloria Calderon Kellett is debuting her comedy project, “Tied in Knots,” on Thursday at the South Beach Comedy Festival.

Kellett wrote the romantic comedy as a play, but with the hopes that it could be adapted into a TV pilot or feature project.

“Tied in Knots” centers on a couple surrounded by a group of single friends, all in their 30s. The duo wind up acting as parental figures to their pals, all of whom are still figuring out the dating world.

While at “How I Met Your Mother,” Kellett, a Cuban-American scribe, won an Alma Award for script in a drama or comedy. She has written several plays, including “Skirts and Flirts,” which ran Off Broadway last year.

Scribe also wrote the book “Accessories,” and shot the Web series “Get Ripped.” She’s writing a feature for the Mark Gordon Co.

The fourth annual South Beach fest, which takes place this week in Miami, is sponsored by Comedy Central and also features perfs by Cheech and Chong, Lewis Black, “The Soup” host Joel McHale and humorist Dave Barry.
