Daniel Kitson at Union Hall

Right after Tearing The Veil of Maya, Daniel Kitson begins night 1 of his four night comedy stand (Dec 2,3,4,5) at Union Hall. Here’s what David Cross had to say about Daniel in 2004:

There’s a guy nobody knows about yet. He’s a young guy from Yorkshire named Daniel Kitson, and he’s honestly the funniest comic I’ve ever seen in my life. Seeing him was the first great stand-up experience I had since Chris Rock’s Bring the Pain special. I want to do whatever I can to introduce him to the U.S.
David Cross, Entertainment Weekly, February 18, 2004
