Comedian Kyle Kinane is a little dark. For starters, he's sure his alarm clock is heckling him.
"When it flashes 8 a.m., it's like it's saying, "boo, boo, boo," he says.
Then there was his job selling cake decorations, which left him with the impression that if he were hit by a bus and killed on his way home, the world might be a better place.
Even his onstage gait is more like that classic street dance, the drunken hobo shuffle. Were he to ask you for change through the mic, you might offer it up. Why? Sure, he looks downtrodden and in need--like a serial killer on the Appalachian trail, as he puts it--but mostly because it's hysterical.
Kinane has done appearances on Comedy Central Presents, The Very Funny Show and Last Call with Carson Daly, and is currently gigging everywhere from the West Coast to Ireland as part of his Keep Mistakin' Tour.
He'll be in Boise for one night only with openers Ian Karmel from Portland, Ore., and Seattle comic Bryan Cook. Boise's own Olek Szewczyk will host. Kinane will headline, because as he puts it: "Every train wreck needs a caboose."
