Kyle Kinane @ The High Watt – Aug. 8, 2014

Kyle Kinane kicks off his “I bet you want to tell me how your barbecue is better here” tour August 8th at The High Watt, which Kyle says is, “always a treat, train interruption, or not.”

This short tour will end at the 40 Watt Club in Athens, Georgia, where he will tape his new comedy special “I Liked His Old Stuff Better.” While talking to the Nashville Scene, Kyle described his “old stuff” as being, “about dismal employment and drunken missteps,” but says, “I like seeing comics and musicians grow, so I’m trying to not become shtick. Sad, bearded, hetero white male comedy is on the gallows right now. I don’t want to be there when the trap door drops. Also, I’m not depressed. It’s disingenuous to say I am just for a bit.” Read the whole interview at the Here’s a clip from 2013:
