With his love of punk rock, smart but self-deprecating humour and enthusiasm for drinking, Kyle Kinane has been up and at it for almost half his life, mostly searching for what it might be. Ten years ago, he realised there might be something more to it all than pulling nights at a suburban gas station. So he moved from Chicago to Los Angeles, and immediately was mugged at gunpoint by a gang of kids, then returned to his car to find it towed. That’s the kind of guy he is. After entertaining Melbourne audiences with a debut appearance in Headliners at the 2012 Comedy Festival, Kinane returns to weave wry observations about the small details of his everyday life – bleak, uplifting or simply the reality of outlaying $100 for some fast food.
