Kyle Kinane Spends Seven Minutes in Purgatory (i.e. An Isolated Room Doing Stand-Up Without Being Able To Hear a Live Audience That’s Watching)
Recent LA transplant by way of Chicago, Ian Abramson, has brought his great comedic stylings along with his innovative show Seven Minutes in Purgatory. The show is not unlike comedy’s version of Plato’s Cave since comedians perform in an isolated room with noise canceling headphones and perform via a feed from a camera to a live audience in another room. So, the comedian can’t hear any reaction, whether it’s good or bad, and will just have to deal with it.
If you’re wondering how that would go, just watch Kyle Kinane pull it off flawlessly here.
