Kevin Chamberlin is one of those celebrities who has overcome his self-consciousness about his sexual orientation and appears to be a proud gay man. While The Addams Family actor prefers to keep his personal life private, he does drop hints about his marital status on a regular basis.

Chamberlin admitted to being in a relationship with a TV writer in a 2010 interview with the Windy City Times. While the interviewer stated that he would have more opportunities in California, he responded that Los Angeles was not a theater town. “My partner is a television writer, so he’s doing well out there,” he added.

He went on to explain that the two had flipped roles, with him being the breadwinner in New York while his partner was in California.

Tweet from Chamberlin titled “I’m Happily Married”

On June 26, 2015, the theater legend took to Twitter to express his delight at the Supreme Court’s decision to legalize gay marriage in the United States. He described the day as a watershed moment in the country’s history and a model for future generations.

In one response to his post, he wrote, “Yes, I am happily married.” The post added to the intrigue surrounding his dating life. However, he has not provided any additional information about his marriage, his partner, or his wife, so it is unclear whether the tweet was accurate.

In ‘The Ritz,’ Chamberlin played a gay character.

The Ritz is a Broadway production about a family man from Ohio who, fleeing his homicidal brother-in-law Carmine Vespucci (Lenny Venito), unintentionally seeks safety at a gay bathhouse in the 1970s. In the amusing piece, Chamberlin played Guitano Proclo.

Aside from that, his stage work has earned him three Tony Awards nominations and three Drama Desk Award nominations for his roles in Dirty Blonde as Charlie, Seussical as Horton, and The Addams Family as Uncle Fester. His other Broadway credits include major productions such as Disaster!, Chicago, Triumph of Love, and My Favorite Year.

Aside from his success in the theatre, he has a few film and television credits. Some of his best TV appearances include A Series of Unfortunate Events, Modern Family, Frasier, Grace and Frankie, and Jessie! on the Disney Channel.

In addition, he appeared in films such as Die Hard With a Vengeance, Road to Perdition, Taking Woodstock, Suspect Zero, and Christmas With the Kranks. Chamberlin appeared as Mr. Mushnik in Little Shop of Horrors at the Pasadena Playhouse in 2019, alongside George Salazar, Mj Rodriguez, Amber Riley, and Matthew Wilkas.

In 2020, the actor was one of many TikTok stars who became an online meme based on the Disney/Pixar film Ratatouille, which was released in 2007.

In addition, Chamberlin was cast as Gusteau in a benefit concert performance of the musical in December 2020. On January 1, 2021, the concert was broadcast on TodayTix. The actor, who wowed audiences with his brilliant performances, remains a popular figure in Hollywood because his fans are unconcerned about his sexual orientation.
