Outrage, atheism, and liberalism—the tenets of a scathing Jamie Kilstein stand-up routine. No conservative foibles nor any religious absurdities will be spared, as the young up-and-comer pokes fun and/or derisively berates homophobes, gun owners and Sarah Palin, while hypothesizing that John McCain keeps Vietcong prisoners in his basement and that Texas had to reject even more threatening state mottoes before settling on the already very-threatening “Don’t Mess With Texas.” Of course, it’s not all anger and politics; within his routine, Kilstein sprinkles much more playful nuggets, most of which suggest his love of drugs. Kilstein on choosing between marijuana and alcohol: “The last time I smoked pot, I sat in my apartment by myself and watched “The Big Lebowski” seven times in a row. But the last time I drank, I called every one of my ex-girlfriends at three in the morning while sobbing.” (Andy Seifert)
