Kevin Israel
Kevin Israel
Kevin Israel has a resume that will make you look twice. If you can think of a job, Kevin has probably worked it during his 40 years on earth. He was a lawyer, a political operative, a communications specialist, and, of course, a stand-up comedian. For over 15 years Kevin had been entertaining audiences with an act forged at his family’s dining room table, in his fraternity house, and in the halls of law school. Kevin has an act unlike any other, because it is his story and his alone. With razor sharp wit and the ability to improvise that only a lawyer could possess – once you see him, you won’t forget him. Considered one of the top political operatives in New Jersey, Kevin left that life, and a lucrative position at a law firm, to pursue his one true passion – comedy. Now he tours the country regaling audiences with his decades of life experience. From stories of his mother, to relationships, to the reality of growing up the only Jewish kid in his school, when Kevin leaves the stage you won’t just feel that you’ve seen a great show, you’ll know you made a friend. Kevin has worked with some of the top acts in the nation. He has appeared on NBC, CBS, ABC and FOX. He guest hosted the Sirius Satellite Radio RawDog comedy morning show and he won the prestigious Gilda Radner’s Laugh-off in 2013. Now he stars in his own web series, “B.R.O.’s” and cohosts the Comedy Point Radio show.
