Kyle Kinane tours with a racist ventriloquist
There's a weariness—or maybe wariness—to Kyle Kinane's style that makes the uncomfortable situations he finds himself in more hilarious. For instance, when he heads on the road with a racist ventriloquist, he's both surprised ("People still do this?") and resigned ("Of course people still do this, and that I have to be party to it."). If someone had to take this gig, we're glad it's Kinane, because no one else could describe the terribleness of it better.
Next up: Jen Kirkman, 9/11, and a cake shaped like boobs. What could go wrong?
