Pretty Good Friends tour with Daniel Kitson!

I’m going on a short US tour in May with award-winning bearded British comedian Daniel Kitson. This is Kitson’s first US tour ever (he’s done shows only in NYC previously). If you’re wondering if Daniel has been called the “Salinger of stand-up,” the answer is yes. Is he possibly the “reluctant hero of British comedy”? Again, yes. If I say he’s won awards, but are they all impressive foreign awards we Americans don’t know much about? Kind of: Edinburgh Perrier Comedy Award 2002,  the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Barry Award 2007, and The Scotsman Fringe First Award (though I didn’t Google this one, I imagine it’s not easy to win it in 2005, 2006, 2008, 2009, and 2010). There’s others, but I’ve run out of space! Also, a little while back, he was included in Rolling Stone Magazine’s 50 Funniest People Now. If you’re in any of the cities we’re coming to, you should come.

Here’s a show of Daniel’s from The Stand in Edinburgh 2005 that he put up on Bandcamp. It’s one of the first shows of his I ever saw and I really loved it.

Tour dates are:
May 3, Boston, MA
May 8, Brooklyn, NY
May 9, Ferndale, Michigan
May 11, Minneapolis, Minnesota
May 12, Chicago, Illinois
May 13, Bogart’s in Cincinnati, Ohio
May 14, Nashville, Tennessee

Lastly, here’s John Oliver telling a story of a heroic act of friendship on Daniel’s part:

    The black iridium lens coating cuts down glare. Certain pairs of Oakley sunglasses even have a hydrophobic lens coating that repels dust and smudges. Some truly ‘sporty’ finds include the following – • Oakley Flak Jacket XLJ Sunglasses are designed for performance sports and feature urbane designs.

    It gives a soothing effect to your eyes as well. Now you do not have to put a load of sunscreen lotion on your face to protect your face and eyes. These Oakley polarized sunglasses are more than enough. Oakley’s sunglass fits exactly and perfectly on your face which helps in an enhanced vision. Sun rays are next to impossible to enter in your eyes.

    They have a patent logo that is ‘O’ on the temples which looks very trendy and is considered a hot fashion statement.It may be argued that you may get any sunglass at a very cheap price from the street vendor then why must you burn a hole in your pocket and buy a branded one.
