Praise & press for "Ken Barnard's Greatest Bits!"
Look, Ma, no feet!
Ken performed his one-man show - "Ken Barnard's Greatest Bits!" - to sold-out crowds at the Lakeshore Theater on February 19 and 20.
Comedy blog The Apiary went into great detail applauding the "Ken Barnard Experience," while Time Out Chicago called him a "lanky lunatic."
The Chicago Reader said that Ken's "grand ambitions are beginning to pay off," praising his work as striking "a
compelling balance between absurdist personal revelations and prop/costume/character weirdness--all delivered with
precise timing, plenty of adlibs, and an affable grin."
