Last March, four of New York’s fastest and funniest comedians, also friends, took the stage together in Glenside Pa for a killer night of comedy. The night was a huge success, and the four headliners were asked to take the show on the road. All four comedians are also dads who discovered they have an odd shared philosophy when it comes to parenting – they think of their children as people, not as kids.
“Being a parent is easy, being a good parent is hard. Because we can’t hit them, anymore. And that’s why we’re doing this tour,” Robert Kelly said. “All the guys I know– including myself, and I have a kid– we’re fucking nuts. We do a lot of creepy shit and our parenting isn’t what you see on TV. And comedy never shows that.” The Kreeps with Kids represent parents who don’t read the books, who have a metal band play their kid’s birthday party, let their kids stay up as late as they want, riff with their kids and let them outside at night with no shoes on without worrying about stepping in rabbit shit. The show won’t be exclusively about being parenting, they’ll cover everything and anything.
Robert Kelly and Ron Bennington will preview the show at the Montreal’s famed Club Soda during the final week of the prestigious Just for Laughs Comedy Festival. The tour will then kick off officially in Reading Pennsylvania on October 18th at the at the Santander Performing Arts Center, visiting theaters in Pittsburgh, Boston, Red Bank, Chicago, and nine other North East cities, ending in Rahway, NJ on November 30th.
