Comedian Kyle Kinane: Pancakes on a Plane and “we go up, they get down”

BIG FAUX PAS: How did I neglect to mention Kyle’s new Comedy Central special Loose in Chicago? Somehow I did! It just premiered on Friday and it’s damn funny, of course. Here’s a review from The A.V. Club and check out for more info.


KYLE KINANE is hysterical and he’s one of my favorite comedians. He’s got a great delivery, is really smart, and his often self-deprecating routines are sometimes essentially just downright bizarre stories. Two of those are two of the funniest routines and stories I’ve ever heard, and they both involve flying.

First, his epic and laugh-out-loud funny story about a guy eating pancakes on a plane

Next, the bit below also entails some strange antics on a flight, about the couple sitting next to him who were getting it on, in-flight.

GREAT QUOTE: “I’m not here to be a goalie…I’m not here to stop somebody from accomplishing their goals. If you’re not hurting anybody I’m here to either assist or get out of the way.” We should all live that mantra.


Cool side note: on the track listing for the Whiskey Icarus album every track’s title is from the KISS album Destroyer.  Every track’s title from his Death of the Party album use the names of every song from Cheap Trick’s Dream Police album. Smart and COOL!
