Kyle Kinane: A Man of Mirth

Photo by Morten SkovgaardBest news ever! Kyle Kinane is in the lineup for this month’s Super Serious Show! Kinane is the real deal when it comes to comedians. In 2010, Kinane was named by Variety one of the 10 Comics to Watch and released his debut comedy album, Death of the Party, for A Special Thing Records. Since then, he continues to bring it in the comedy realm, including a Comedy Central Presents half hour special as well as an appearance on Conan. Kinane's other TV appearances include Last Call with Carson Daly and Live at Gotham.

According to an interview with the A.V. Club, Kinane just finished working on a Comedy Central television pilot with Matt Braunger, another Super Serious friend. So, we have our fingers crossed for the show making to the light of day. We're excited for the possibility of even more of these awesome guys.

Kinane is the kind of comedian you watch and then want to invite to your home for a beer. His cool and laidback on-stage presence never seems contrived. On the contrary, he is extremely relatable and hilarious, even when describing himself in the most self-loathing way. On top of all this, Kinane is one of the best comedic storytellers out there. We are pumped to see Kinane next Thursday and you should be too.

Jerrod Carmichael: Comedy & Charm Coming Your Way

The very funny and talented Jerrod Carmichael will be performing at the August Super Serious Show! This year Carmichael Variety recognized as one of the 10 Comics to Watch, and we couldn’t agree more with his inclusion on the list. Despite being a young comic, only 24-years-old, Carmichael has the calm and ease of a comedy veteran when he's on stage. Carmichael is known for always keeping his material fresh and fearlessly delivering jokes on the fly. He is the type of performer with enough charisma to get away with saying just about anything. You are always on board with Carmichael, whether you feel comfortable or not.

Carmichael can be seen performing at Los Angeles venues such as The Laugh Factory, The Comedy Store and The Improv. He was also a “new face” at Montreal’s Just For Laughs comedy festival this year.
We can only expect greater and bigger things for this funny, funny man.

Grab tickets for the show - Thursday, August 18th at Smashbox Studios.
