IMPORTANT–THIS IS NOT a COMPLETE LIST OF WORK. YOU CAN FIND THAT (NO FANCY PICTURES OR LINKS) HERE My name is Daniel Kinch. I also answer to Dan as well as a variety of other names (sometimes to ‘Jerry’). I studied acting in college at University of South Florida (and afterwards), but my interest is (and always […]

So I’m doing this play about climate and why global warming is going crazy. It’s at the Tampa Fringe and I have two more nights. As I remind the audience, I am not a PhD in climate related issues. But this caught my attention in April and I’ve been ruminating ever since. People deserve to […]

So here’s the deal. Five years ago I brought my play about global warming (then titled PLANET HOSPICE) to the first ever TAMPA FRINGE. It was bad news about climate. It’s all bad news. And people got the message a bit but the beer is cheap in Ybor City, and after my run, everybody calmed […]

Brooklyn had a half marathon this weekend and a runner died. It was in the 90’s and fifteen other runners ended up in the hospital. This was all documented here on CNN. For those of us who live here, it wasn’t a surprise. It was fiercely hot and I can’t imagine someone going out to […]

There’s so much on the political front right now, I don’t know where to begin. We’re four days away from the Buffalo slaughter of innocents, and the signs are that this is not a random act as it is a militia driven precursor to America sliding down into chaos. this meme might be predictive of […]

I feel like a dope for having not figured this out on my own. The IRS is not an agency I feel sorry for, even though they are being taken down by the Trumpists. And the rightwingers trying to defund them are not noble people–they have their own reasons for wanting to break the tax […]

I really, really didn’t want to get too involved in this fracas. Lots of passionate opinions on both sides. But a comedian said something on stage that Will Smith felt insulted his wife. He felt the insult was so heinous, he needed to physically assault Chris Rock to make up for it. And the audience […]

It’s five people who are scientists or political activists or a mix of both. All bemoaning the fact that much of the scientific world has thrown in the towel on preventing global warming from reaching an extinction point. But this was a point made by Kevin, who I’ve quoted here before. Kevin has been around […]

I did six shows of THE STORY OF FALLING DON as part of the Frigid Fest. I was happy with the quality of the work I came out with. I got a good review–mine was one of only two plays mentioned in Manhattan with a Twist, which you can see here. If you are averse […]

You can call ahead for tickets . I’ve posted a video preview of the play on my YouTube Channel. It’s here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vvCwLBHdPVs You […]

The premise of the Netflix movie DON’T LOOK UP is that there’s a planet killing comet heading for earth and in five months and a few days, it will hit Earth and cause a mass extinction event. The only people who know initially are two astronomers who’ve seen it and done the math. The question […]
