"CD Review"

rmed with a droll wit, boisterous delivery, and an impressive beard, Kyle Kinane—recently seen touring with Patton Oswalt—makes even the most depressing stories funny. “Hey, anybody ever get so lonely that you sleep on your couch instead of in your own bed, ’cause at least that way it feels like you’re lying next to somebody?” he barks near the top of his new CD, Death Of The Party. And sure, it’s bleak stuff, with bits about friends who are afraid to let Kinane hold their babies, waking up at 8 a.m. to a digital alarm clock that looks like it’s flashing the word “boo,” and what Kinane describes as being “a stripped-bare toothless cog spinning freely and ineffectually in the working machine of society.” (By the way, he’s “selling gourmet cake decorations over the phone to strangers.”) But the material rarely drags; the depths of Kinane’s inventiveness is astounding, like his conspiracy theories about Trader Joe’s and the inane quandaries that contribute to his insomnia. Kinane’s Twitter feed—compiled on the appropriately titled “Shooting For Third“—offers a taste of his dark sensibilities. - -A.V. Club - March 2010

-- Voted #3 as of the Top Ten Best Comedy Albums of 2010 (Punchline Magazine)



In 1999, Kyle realized there might be something more to it all than pulling nights at a suburban gas station. "Something more" has taken him across the US, Canada, and England. He has appeared on "The World Stands Up" for the BBC, twice on "Conan," "Live at Gotham," "John Oliver's New York Stand-Up Show," and in the Judd Apatow production Funny People. Variety chose him as one of the 10 Comics to Watch for 2010. His "Comedy Central Presents" debuted in 2011.

"This guy Kyle Kinane that I have open up for me. He’s gotten so good now (laughs) that I don’t really know if I want him opening up. He’s getting hard to follow — but in a way that’s good because it makes me work harder."--Patton Oswalt

"Kinane is a real original. His first stand-up album, Death of the Party, is a brilliant introduction to the comic and one of the best debut records I've ever heard."--Patrick Bromley,

"Have you guys heard Kyle Kinane's new album Death of the Party? It is AAAAAAMAAZING!"--Gonzalo Cordova, Comedy Central's Insider blog

"A truly original, funny and wholly satisfying album, Death of the Party is a welcomed introduction for a rising comic into the landscape of the national stand-up comedy scene."
