• Kyle Kinane’s first hour special Whiskey Icarus premieres Nov. 24, so let’s watch some previews

    Kyle Kinane has come such a long way in the last three years. It seems like just yesterday we were placing his debut album Death of the Party at number three on our 2010 albums-of-the year list. Since that time, he’s established himself as one of the country’s most sought-after headliners, scoring himself his own Comedy Central Presents as well as appearances last year on Conan and John Oliver’s New York Stand-up Show.

    And this Saturday, Nov. 24 at 11 pm ET on Comedy Central, Kinane will be front and center in his first hour-long stand-up special, Whiskey Icarus. Filmed at the Fillmore theater in San Francisco, the Chicago-bred, Los Angeles-based comedian ruminates on the meaning of life, albeit through his own alcohol-and-junk-food fueled brain.

    To properly prep you for the event, we’ve got a pair of excellent previews below. The first finds our antagonist in the middle of an existential crisis after a pizza arrives at his door unsliced. In the second, Kinane hilariously (and dare I say, astutely) examines the meaning of loneliness.

    The uncut and uncensored album version of Whiskey Icarus will be available digitally on Nov. 27. But you can pre-order that sucker now! The DVD version of the Comedy Central special will be out early next year.
