Humorist, playwright, and author, Kevin Kling is hailed as a Minnesota state treasure. Former Guthrie Theater artistic director Joe Dowling said that "Kevin has the ability to be genuinely funny, but he can also move you to tears. He's profound in the way he combines a natural genius sense of observation and humor with a real understanding of what it is to struggle, as he's had to do all his life." Join Kevin as he shares new stories and reads from his very popular books The Dog Says How, Holiday Inn, Big Little Brother, and Big Little Mother.
Kevin Kling’s style reflects both his innate sense of humor and the life challenges he has surmounted, including a congenital birth disorder and complications from a near-fatal motorcycle accident. He has performed his stories and plays in libraries, schools, the Kennedy Center, Off-Broadway, regional theaters, and storytelling festivals nationwide. His international tours have included Australia, Europe, and Thailand. Kevin is especially proud of his work as a teacher, playwright, and performer with Interact Center for the Visual and Performing Arts, a company that creates art in the spirit of radical inclusion. Kevin comes to us from Minneapolis.
