This past June at Just For Laughs Chicago comedian Kyle Kinane hosted a night he called, “Dancing Around The Shit Fire.” Why did he call it that? Well, his logic was that if the show stunk, fans couldn’t complain because they willingly purchased tickets to an event called, “Dancing Around The Shit Fire.” The idea is simple, gather some of his comedian friends and some of his musician friends and put together a variety show. For the version that is available for $5 on Chill.com right now Kinane, along with comedians Bryan Cook, Ben Roy, Brendan Kelly from Chicago punk band The Lawrence Arms put on a night of shit fiery fun. I was lucky enough to catch one of these performances but it had a different lineup – Sean Patton and Mike Burns delivered the comedy as the band Gub Club which was made up of a few veteran Chicago musicians including John Jughead from Screeching Weasel.
Sense the theme? Now go on and give Kyle Kinane your money.
