Jamie Kilstein

Jamie has been seen on The Paramount Comedy Channel in the UK,The Comedy Channel in Australia, and Showtime Comedy in the Middle East and other places outside of America so his friends still assume he is lying. He co-hosts Citizen Radio Live at the UCB Theater with Allison Kilkenny, and is a contributor to The Onion newspaper and Huffington Post. "Watching Jamie reminds me of why I got into comedy. It is like watching a combination of George Carlin and Bill Hicks" JANEANE GAROFALO

"There are few truly insightful, passionate and hysterically funny political comedians around, and even fewer coming out of the States. New Yorker Jamie Kilstein is a shining light probing into the murkier corners of the religious right and corrupt politics of his homeland. Funny and penetrating, he's taken Bill Hicks' baton and run with it." TIME OUT LONDON
