Event Description
Jamie Kilstein Comedy Show at Tropicalia!

Jamie has been seen on The Conan O’Brien show, MSNBC’s Up with Chris, Countdown with Keith Olbermann, Showtimes The Green Room, CNN’s The Joy Behar Show, The Paramount Comedy Channel in the UK, The BBC, The Comedy Channel in Australia, HBO Canada, and Showtime Comedy in the Middle East.

He co-hosts Citizen Radio, which has been praised by Janeane Garofalo, Noam Chomsky, Robin Williams. He and his co-host were named by The Nation Magazine as top “media heroes”. Most importantly Glenn Beck has called him a “doofus” and “goofball” and Jonah Goldberg refuses to fight him.

He was a Timeout Chicago, Sydney, New York and London’s Critics Pick. He has played the concert hall of the Sydney Opera House and opened for Bad Religion. Before that he lived out of his car and dropped out of high school. Take that, life!
Citizen Radio

He co-hosts Citizen Radio with Allison Kilkenny (The Nation), which is dedicated to covering the stories that the mainstream, corporate media ignores. He has had the privilege of interviewing such distinct intellectuals as Rachel Maddow, Bad Religion, Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Matt Taibbi, Jeremy Scahill, Rise Against, Robin Williams, Janeane Garofalo, Moby, Sarah Silverman, Naomi Klein, Amy Goodman, Regina Spektor and more. He has also been the recipient of batshit crazy threatening letters by the hate group God Hates Fags. Good stuff. wearecitizenradio.com
Quotes

“Jamie Kilstein is amazing and I will be spreading the word. He has the spark that energized my conscience. We need more comedians kicking it hard the way he does every night”
- Robin Williams

“Watching Jamie reminds me of why I got into comedy. It is like watching a combination of George Carlin and Bill Hicks”
- Janeane Garofalo

“Jamie Kilstein is a doofus.” Glenn Beck

“Like an underground Daily Show affiliate with more swearing, less civility, and zero budget, the daily political-comedy talk show Citizen Radio addresses the news of the day with a side-eyed glance at what, how, and why news is reported … For those who view mainstream news and think, ‘That can’t be right, and surely someone has something funny and insightful to say about it before 11 p.m. ET,’ Citizen Radio is a must.” - The Onion’s A/V Club

“Hilarious and scathing” - Rolling Stone Magazine

“Jamie Kilstein and Allison Kilkenny have created an important political radio show that balances humor and unreported news. At a time when media conglomerates dominate the airwaves, independent media like Citizen Radio is vital to national discourse.”
- Noam Chomsky

“Jamie Kilstein is at once irresistibly endearing and wonderfully audacious. Watching his work is like going to cuddle a puppy and having it hump your leg. But funnier.”
- Tim Minchin

“Comedy and music have always been instrumental in distilling the essence of political debate and social issues. In a time where artists and comedians too often shy away from that legacy, Citizen Radio is a rare gem of reason and thought-provoking dialogue. Jamie and Allison are intelligent and unapologetic agitators in a world that needs some shaking up, and I, for one, am grateful for that” – Tim McIlrath, Rise Against, lead singer

“Jamie Kilstein is one of the funniest and smartest humans on the planet: his rocket-powered wit leaves you gasping – for more: sheer brilliance.”
- World famous Philosopher and Professor A.C Grayling (Suck on it high school.)

“Jamie’s unique style of stand up is artfully thoughtfully and powerfully funny. His balls are so big that must be where he keeps all the funny!”
- Paul Provenza (Creator and Director of The Aristocrats)
