New York comedian Jamie Kilstein returns to the UK in February 2013 for dates in Manchester, Newcastle, Glasgow, Edinburgh and six nights at London’s Soho Theatre.
Known for his intelligent, no-holds-barred take on religion, politics, corporate greed and veganism, he’s consistently been compared by critics, comedians and audiences to fearless comic icons Bill Hicks and George Carlin.
Jamie has performed all over the world from the Sydney Opera House to the prestigious Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, appeared on Conan O’Brien and regularly co-hosts Citizen Radio with Allison Kilkenny, interviewing the likes of Noam Chomsky, Sarah Silverman and Regina Spektor.
He has also been the recipient of batshit crazy threatening letters by the hate group God Hates Fags.
“This is beautifully, intelligently crafted stuff. Kilstein is possibly the most impressive writer/performer, I have seen – his set is so well written it could have a life apart from him and still be brilliant. Performed by him gives it an added oomph, but I have not been so aware of the writing quality of a comedy set this year.” Kate Copstick, The Scotsman
“There are few truly insightful, passionate and hysterically funny political comedians around, and even fewer coming out of the States. New Yorker Jamie Kilstein is a shining light probing into the murkier corners of the religious right and corrupt politics of his homeland. Funny and penetrating, he’s taken Bill Hicks’ baton and run with it.” Time Out London
“Jamie Kilstein is at once irresistibly endearing and wonderfully audacious. Watching his work is like going to cuddle a puppy and having it hump your leg. But funnier.” Tim Minchin
“In this brisk, fluid hour he’s sharp, sarcastic and engaging, fearless in niggling his targets and knows how to write a joke to back up his incredulous indignation…as funny as it is audacious.” Chortle
“Hilarious and scathing” Rolling Stone
