About the Artist:
Kevin James Thornton has built a loyal following with his hilarious, heartfelt and occasionally cringey moments of self reflection (with a splash of autotune) about growing up gay in a religious community. He has over 2 million followers on Instagram and TikTok with combined views nearing a billion. From 2009-2012 he toured 3 successful one-man-shows nationwide to theatre festivals and comedy clubs where Showbiz Chicago said the performance was “Intimate brilliance” and NUVO Indianapolis said it was “memorable and moving.” He has been featured in The Huffington Post, The Advocate, The New Yorker and Cosmopolitan, and was featured in a piece on NPR’s All Things Considered. Currently his TV special “Be Yourself” is on Amazon Prime and Apple TV. He’s gearing up for another full year of live shows in 2024.
