Hot on the heels of a wildly successful Father’s Day show at The Cedar, Larry will be joining Kevin Kling this Thursday, June 30, to kick off the Toast and Jelly Days Revisited Storytelling Festival.
Kevin Kling describes his zodiac sign as “Minnesota with Iowa rising…” Best known for his popular commentaries on National Public Radio’s All Things Considered and his storytelling stage shows like Tales from the Charred Underbelly of the Yule Log, delivers hilarious, often tender stories. His storytelling started when a friend from the now defunct Brass Tacks Theatre asked him to perform his stories. Since then, he has been awarded numerous arts grants and fellowships. Kling’s autobiographical tales are as enchanting as they are true to life: hopping freight trains, getting hit by lightning, performing his banned play in Czechoslovakia, growing up in Minnesota, and eating things before knowing what they are.
