Since late 1993, The Kinsey Sicks have served up a feast of comedy and music across the country and around the globe. They have produced and performed full-length theatrical productions in recital halls, performing arts centers, theaters, colleges, comedy festivals and special events just about anywhere you can imagine. Combining glorious four-part harmony, wicked satire and over-the-top drag, The Kinsey Sicks have garnered the attention and abject devotion of an unexpectedly diverse group of fans.
In 2001, The Kinsey Sicks produced and starred in their critically acclaimed Off-Broadway hit, "Dragapella!" at New York's legendary Studio 54. That production received a nomination for a Lucille Lortel award (the Off-Broadway Tony) as Best Musical of 2001. In 2006, the Kinsey Sicks wowed audiences with a much- coveted extended run at the Las Vegas Hilton. The show was ranked by critics as one of the best shows in Vegas, and heralded by reviewers as "a feast for the eyes, the ears and the funny bone."
The Kinsey Sicks have recorded seven CDs: Dragapella, Boyz 2 Girlz, Sicks in the City, I Wanna Be a Republican, Oy Vey in a Manger: Christmas Carols and Other Jewish Music, Sicks! Sicks! Sicks! and their latest offering, Each Hit & I. Many of these are available on iTunes or can be purchased at www.kinseysicks.com
They are the subjects of two feature films: a concert film, "I Wanna Be a Republican," and a behind-the-scenes documentary, "Almost Infamous." These are available on DVD and can be purchased at www.kinseysicks.com
The Kinsey Sicks attribute their success in show business to their longstanding philosophy: "no refunds." However, complaints and/or booking inquiries can be registered at kinseysicks.com.
