Follow Kyle Kinane on Twitter Follow John Mulaney on Twitter I hope I didn't confuse you with the title. It's not like they were on the same show, standing back-to-back to each other on stage. No, no that didn't happen. What did happen was I saw Kinane on Wednesday and Mulaney on Thursday. But instead of reading two long, overwrought posts I thought I'd make your day(s) by combining the two into one tight, concise article. Ok, here we go. Kinane's show started at 11 pm at the Mod Club and Mulaney started at 7 at the Queen Theatre. Local man Chris Locke opened for Kinane and did very well. I'm not going to talk more about that, because I sometimes perform on the same show as him and it might be awkward next time I see him. He might be all like, "Yo, thanks for the words..." This is kind of the same reason why I don't want to write a lot about Kinane or Mulaney, because in my head I'm like, "yea, I'll be working with those dudes soon." Hah. I'd watched Kinane's and Mulaney's most recent specials before I went to their shows and I was on board with their acts. It wouldn't have mattered, their jokes could've easily swayed the most ardent haters. They got chops. Both comics mix personal anecdotes with funny observations, it's just that their points of view were on the other side of the spectrum. Kinane's more of a loveable slob while Mulaney is a loveable golden boy. That's how I see it. Don't comment if you disagree, I don't fucking care. I'm not going to read it. Kinane talked about cops, the redundancy of football, and bjs. Mulaney talked about kids, Catholicism, and Bill Clinton. They talked about more than that, but I'm not going to describe their jokes for you. Reviewers should never go into detail on jokes. That ruins the jokes. The shows went great, from beginning to end. Mulaney even started his show with "some of theses jokes are new," which is usually a crutch in case some jokes suck, but man, he was polished. I like to describe his act as polished, like a bowling ball that was just polished by a dude who was expensive and renowned for polishing. Real shiny. Both comics use better similes in their acts than my last one. They use really effective and hard-hitting similes. If you get a chance check out these two fellas. They got tight acts. I'm sorry for making this post half about me, I usually hate when writers do that.
