“It’s a show with a big heart.” – The Fringe Review
An award winning actor, writer, producer, host, and comedian, Flynn started out as a professional soccer player and made the transition to standup comedian by winning the prestigious Boston Comedy Riot. Since that time, Kevin has gone on to make numerous television and film appearances as a comedian and actor.
Kevin can be seen as The Wedding Coordinator in The Heartbreak Kid with Ben Stiller; in Me, Myself and Irene with Jim Carrey; in Osmosis Jones with Bill Murray; and as Charlotte’s Boyfriend in HBO’s Sex and the City. His character, Bram Walker, was voted one of the most popular boyfriends in the series. Kevin recently completed a role in the movie The World’s Greatest Beer Run with Russell Crowe and Zac Efron set for release in the next few months.
While constantly acting and performing standup around the country, Kevin also works as a host and entertainer in the sports world. Flynn has covered World Cup Soccer for Fox Sports, ESPN, and ABC. Flynn’s show, Sports Figures on ESPN, received the POLK Award for excellence in children’s programming. He also created a weekly sports podcast for the ESPN Network called Over the Ball. The show combines the worlds of soccer, comedy, and entertainment. The show has been named MLS Talk Show of the Year.
In 1996, Kevin was the host of The Discovery Channel’s Go For It, an extreme outdoor adventure show where he swam with sharks, jumped out of airplanes, and scaled dangerous peaks. The show led Kevin to create his first one-man show, The Go For It Guy, which won the Best of Fest at the Boston Comedy Festival and HBO’s U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen. Kevin is currently touring nationally with his latest one-man show, Fear of Heights—A Very Funny Phobia
Along with continually performing his stand-up, Kevin is also the Founder and Executive Director of the Nantucket Comedy Festival. Each summer, the festival brings top comedic talent to Nantucket Island as the major fundraiser for Stand Up & Learn TM, an island-based, year-round comedy education program serving Nantucket’s children.
