Daniel Kitson - 'After The Beginning. Before The End'

A late night treat!

Award-winning comedian Daniel Kitson returns to New York City for a night of stand-up comedy

After the Beginning. Before the End

This is a very specific point in time.

"I’ve been waiting to have the idea for this show for weeks, for months. A space held open in my head waiting for the idea. For months. I’ve done previews and I’ve booked the tour and I’ve stared at the internet and I’ve made chicken and I’ve tried not to worry. But the idea has not come and I have worried. I’ve worried and doubted and waited more and more and more. But then today, having dropped my dad off at the train station and met my friends for some coffee, whilst driving home to write this (very overdue) brochure copy - dreading the thought of heaving half lies and optimistic promises into something vaguely intriguing but not developmentally restrictive - half way home, it happened. Somewhere between East London and South London - it arrived. The Idea. Just like that. Like a child, late home from school, oblivious to the worry and the panic and the phone calls. It just walked in and sat down like it wasn’t even a big deal. So now I’m typing this in my bedroom because the boy who lives next door is playing the James Bond theme on what I assume to be a trumpet.

And you have to trust me.

Two hours ago I didn’t have the idea. Now I do. And it’s going to be good."

TICKETS: $20 (plus service fee) at SmartTix

This show ran all over UK last month and sold out each night.

Kitson's shows are always smart, thoughtful, funny, but are very hard to describe. So if you are not familiar with his work, definitely read the reviews from the Guardian and Independent

THIS EVENT IS POSTED AS FYI ONLY. Since Daniel Kitson has a cult following and his events usually sell out (Friday / Saturday tickets sold out first day, but there should be some weekday tickets left), it will be hard to coordinate as a Meetup event. Make sure to get tickets as soon as you know you are going. RSVP back here if you are interested in meeting up with others. Hopefully, there will be other folks going the same night.

    10 stars! Kitson was on for 1:45 hours without a break and I was laughing (and crying from the laughing) the entire time.
