Press Reviews of Jamie Kilstein:
“Watching Jamie reminds me of why I got into comedy. It is like watching a combination of George Carlin and Bill Hicks.”
“There are few truly insightful, passionate and hysterically funny political comedians around, and even fewer coming out of the States. New Yorker Jamie Kilstein is a shining light probing into the murkier corners of the religious right and corrupt politics of his homeland. Funny and penetrating, he’s taken Bill Hicks’ baton and run with it.”
“Jamie Kilstein is one of the funniest and smartest humans on the planet: his rocket-powered wit leaves you gasping – for more: sheer brilliance.”
- A.C Grayling (World famous Philosopher and Professor)
“Jamie Kilstein is at once irresistibly endearing and wonderfully audacious. Watching his work is like going to cuddle a puppy and having it hump your leg. But funnier.”
- Tim Minchin
“If you liked Bill Hicks… If you think comedy should be about something more than just froth and banter… If you want to hear someone standing-up for freedom of speech and smacking religious bigotry and political stupidity squarely in the face… then this hugely talented American is the guy for you.”
- Time Out Critics’ Choice
