Planet Hospice–A New monologue play

So let’s pretend that you’re me (YOU call the medical insurance people :-\) I consider myself intelligent enough, but I’m not a person with credentials attesting to that. I am not a PhD in anything. By the time I finished my masters degree many years ago, it was clear that colleges were no longer creating […]

About my one-person shows -updated

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 was) in writing plays–I studied with the late great Jack Gelber at Brooklyn College. I’ve written lots of […]

Hurry up with 2014 already!

We are now in the armpit of the year that is the six days betwixt Xmas and New Year’s Day. I can’t do a Year in Review on a totally pessimistic note. I had several performance gigs.  I bid adieu to Richmond, Virginia after getting rid of my parent’s lifetime’s accumulation of check stubs. On the […]

If you are free next Monday, come by and see my play

I will be performing my famous play HOW TO STOP THE EMPIRE WHILE KEEPING YOUR DAY JOB this MONDAY, October 21, as part of the Theater for the New City Scratch Night Festival. This will be the full version of the play, incorporating both information about the second anniversary of the Occupy Wall Street Movement […]

How to Stop the Empire–at Zuccotti Park on S17

It looks like I’ll be performing HOW TO STOP THE EMPIRE WHILE KEEPING YOUR DAY JOB at Zuccotti Park next Tuesday afternoon as part of the Second Anniversary of Occupy Wall Street (known to the insiders as ‘S17’). There are plenty of ways to get involved, but know that I’ll be down there for all […]

Where have I been?????

It’s a rough couple weeks here in my part of Brooklyn. My beloved computer gave up the ghost, doing serious damage to the hard drive when a virus clean went awry. An amazing (and non-data related) physical viral infection came down on our heads like an avenging angel, withering everyone in the household for days […]

How to Stop the Empire–the Chelsea Manning edition

For those of you joining me for the first time, I wrote this funny little play a couple years back called HOW TO STOP THE EMPIRE WHILE KEEPING YOUR DAY JOB. It was fairly successful, and the YouTube presentation got a lot of views. People who remember the play (or who saw the video) say […]

FIGMENT EVENT TOMORROW! (unless it rains like crazy)

Wow. So I was kinda/sorta invited to crash the Figment event tomorrow at Governor’s Island in New York. I’m doing a long version of my one-man show HOW TO STOP THE EMPIRE WHILE KEEPING YOUR DAY JOB. If you’ve seen me on YouTube, this will have new detail on another activity that will bring the […]

Letters of support for Jeremy Hammond

Kinda self explanatory (address hard to read, click on jpg). I told you all  in March of 2012 that there were bad times ahead and we needed solidarity. Whether it’s Occupy or Anonymous or the Plowshares, there are people who kick the beehive for the rest of us and they get stung. And we’re a […]

Don’t know much about a Cornucopia of Conspiracy Theories

In my play HOW TO STOP THE EMPIRE WHILE KEEPING YOUR DAY JOB, the character known as Jerry takes on the issue of the people who deride him as a conspiracy theorist–and those who use the phrase ‘conspiracy theorist’ as a pejorative term: “People call me a conspiracy theorist for saying that Obama signed the […]
