Comedian Jamie Kilstein

From Summer Nights, 7:08 pm on 9 January 2014

Jamie Kilstein is an American comedian and co-host of the podcast Citizen Radio with journalist Allison Kilkenny. He makes political comedy that subverts entrenched stereotypes around gender, sexuality, class, and race - which has been profoundly unsettling for the comedy fraternity. He talks about becoming political after dropping out of high school, and the backlash he got for suggesting that rape jokes weren't funny. Jamie's latest CD is entitled 'What Alive People Do'.
