Killing Joke: Jamie Kilstein Hates Stand-up

Jamie Kilstein is the kind of comic who grabs paradigms by the throat, wrassles them to the ground and throttles them into submission. Previous noteworthy title bouts include a win over Rape Culture for the heavy-weight title and a bare-knuckle brawl with the War Machine that ended in a contested draw (rematch to be announced). This Saturday Kilstein takes on his toughest opponent yet ... Comedy? Albuquerque becomes a battleground as the Jamie Kilstein Hates Standup tour rolls through. Also appearing on the card: Irony vs. Sincerity, Reality vs. Ideology, and all your favorites.

If you've ever listened to Kilstein's "Citizen Radio" podcast or read #NEWSFAIL (both made with his partner Allison Kilkenny), you already know that this show will not be for the faint of heart or the weak of will. He has killed before, and will do so again. Modes of thinking will be brutalized. Behavior patterns will be skewered. He is a murderer and must be stopped. Until then, you might as well enjoy the show this Saturday, April 18, at the Tricklock Performance Laboratory (110 Gold SW) at 8pm. Tickets are $15 to $21, on sale now at Tricklock Performance Laboratory • Sat Apr 18 • 8pm • $15-$21 • View on Alibi calendar
