WATCH KEVIN'S REEL

Working with Kanbar Entertainment, Kevin co-authored seven treatments for animated feature films, developed two animated television series and co-wrote a sequel/Holiday special to the hit animated movie Hoodwinked!

Kevin created three original web-series including AMC's The Sci Fi Department (short-listed for a Webby) and Comedy Central/Atom's Old People News.

On stage Kevin created the multi-media shows Video Vaudeville and Kevin Geeks Out, a monthly confabulation of vintage film clips, guest experts, interactive games and curiosities.  Over the course of the run, Kevin "geeked out" about Bigfoot, Robots, KISS, Video Games,  Dummy DeathsAlien Encounters and Batman. (For that show he wrote 100 haiku about Batman.) The show was a favorite of critics, from The New York Times to Scientific American.

Before that, he performed solo comedies including the off-Broadway show "Lone Drifter."  Before that, he was one-third of the sketch comedy trio TV Head.

Journalists have compared Kevin to Ernie Kovacs and Jonathan Winters, but his highest praise came from Tiger Beat who called him "funny!"

Kevin,

Since you made yourself the topic of conversation, please let me vent some pent-up fanboy admiration. I'm a big fan of your Sci Fi Dept videos. I thought your best work was in Why Not Tron Fest?, The Toxic Avenger (Rock Musical), and Post Apocalyptic Living Guide. Even though there are no more videos on the way, keep up the good work.

Thanks for your note, Christopher. I added the TOXIC AVENGER musical, because I gotta include the fan favorites!

There's some good stuff coming soon.
