Kevin Israel (Co-Headliner) broke his poor Jewish mother’s heart when he left the practice of law to pursue his true passion – stand-up comedy. And while she’s still coming to terms with the reality of his chosen profession, Kevin has honed a one-of-a-kind act that takes you through his life and finds humor in all of it. Kevin has toured the country regaling audiences with his decades of life experience. From stories about his parents, to relationships, to the reality of growing up the only Jewish kid in his school, when Kevin leaves the stage you won’t just feel that you’ve seen a great show, you’ll know you made a friend. Kevin has worked with some of the top acts in the nation. He was recently featured on Kevin Hart‘s LOL Network and he is a USA Today Storyteller. Kevin has guest hosted the Sirius Satellite Radio RawDog comedy morning show and he won the prestigious Gilda Radner‘s Laugh-off in 2013.
