ChicagoVeg» Chicagoland Vegetarian-Vegan-RawFood Community Message Board › Vegan Comedian Jamie Kilstein in town Nov 14
Just wanted to pass along (because I think you'll love it, and also it is my job) that vegan comedian, activist and general badass Jamie Kilstein will be doing a set at Mayne Stage, Nov 14 at 8 p.m. You've seen him on Showtime (his gay rights rant from that went a little viral on tumblr this summer too...), Conan O'Brien, Melissa Harris-Perry, MSNBC's Up with Chris and more.
He is a regular in the NYC comedy scene, runs a radical podcast out of his Brooklyn apartment with his partner, Nation journalist Allison Kilkenny and just announced a UK tour for next February. He was also one of the only male comedians standing up against Tosh during that whole rape comment incident and has actually turned all the hate spewed at him by Internet douchebags into a hilarious bit.
Janeane Garofalo compared him to a combination of George Carlin and Bill Hicks. More importantly, Glenn Beck called him a "doofus" and a "goofball".
I think you all would have a great time hanging out with other vegans, feminists, LGBTQ kids and allies, atheists, activists, punks, outcasts!
