I Just Watched Kill Tony Live

Post by Mark

For those of you who follow my blog regularly, you probably know that my favorite podcast is called Kill Tony, a comedy show run by the popular comedian Tony Hinchcliffe. In the show, Tony randomly selects a name of an audience member from a hat (the audience members are young striving comedians) and they have to come up and do a stand up set for 60 seconds in front of Tony and his guests. After the 60 seconds, Tony and his guests roast the comedians while also interviewing them to find out more about them. The show takes place at The Comedy Store on Sunset Boulevard here in L.A., it’s my favorite comedy store, it’s where Joe Rogan and his friends perform, and I always drop by whenever I’m in town. Today I got to watch Kill Tony perform their 224th show live and I loved it.

Me and my friend got there a bit early so we managed to get a table right up front and dead center which was amazing. Tonight the three guests were comedians Benji Aflalo, Jak Knight and a surprise appearance by the legendary Ron White who came in 30 minutes into the show with a bottle of tequila. I can’t remember the last time I laughed so hard, the podcast is funny as is but watching it live and half drunk is a completely different level of funny. Everyone was also super down to earth and after the show all the comedians including Ron and Tony were in the main patio drinking and talking with all of us.

If you listen to podcasts and like comedy then you need to check out the Kill Tony podcast if you haven’t already. I was a fan before and a much bigger fan now.
