NEW SHOW: Friday, November 21 - Keegan-Michael Key with Bhi Bhiman
Our friend Keegan-Michael Key is one of the greatest comedians working today, one of the nicest people in the world, and he’s making the trip out to do the show in St. Paul! And we get to hang out with Bhi Bhiman and have so much fun!
Keegan-Michael Key is best known for starring in the Emmy-nominated and Peabody Award-winning Comedy Central series Key & Peele. He got his start in comedy at Second City Detroit, and later moved on to their Chicago company where he received awards for his writing and performance. While still in Chicago, Key made the jump to TV, starring in Fox’s MADtv for six seasons, and scoring reoccurring roles on shows like RENO 911!, FX’s Fargo, and USA Network’s Playing House. Key can also be seen on the big screen in movies including Role Models, Due Date, Just Go With It, and Let’s Be Cops, as well as the upcoming Horrible Bosses 2.
St. Louis, Missouri native Bhi Bhiman is an American original. His rich, bellowing tenor can soothe or explode at a moment’s notice, inviting comparisons from Nina Simone to Bill Withers. And his songwriting is quick to captivate – a mix of humor and deep empathy reminiscent of distinguished songsmiths like Woody Guthrie and Randy Newman. His self-released debut album, BHIMAN, was hailed by critics in the New York Times, Washington Post, and NPR’s Robert Christgau. It also earned him the distinction of being one of the only unsigned artists to ever appear on Britain’s “Later w/ Jools Holland”. Bhiman’s next record will be released in early 2015.
