You may remember Kevin Thornton from previous fringe hits like Sex, Dreams & Self Control in 2009, I Love You (We’re Fucked) in 2011, and Strange Dreamz in 2012. Kevin will bring his award winning stand-up comedy and music exploring themes of love, sex and the meaning of life to Know Theatre for one night only. His stories comment on sexuality (the straight and gay kind), religion and American life in a new century.

Kevin Thornton is a New Faces winner at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles and recently performed at Gotham Comedy Club in New York. When he’s not doing stand-up he is a full-time fringe performer, and has appeared in nearly every US fringe. He’s also an author, musician and podcast radio host. He talked about the many facets of his career as a guest lecturer at Berkeley last year, and has been invited to speak again in 2013.
