New DVD, Filmed LIVE at The Edinburgh Fringe!

Nov 6, 2015

It's the perfect imperfect holiday gift: The Kinsey Sicks' first DVD in 7 years, "America's Next Top Bachelor Housewife Celebrity Hoarder Makeover Star Gone Wild!", filmed live amidst the excitement (and considerable sweat) of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

If you couldn't make it to Edinburgh, get the DVD and see what the London Times described as:

"Wonderfully smart, politically pointed and liberating ... examples of The Kinseys' contagious brand of rib tickling abound in the tight-knit groups's Edinburgh debut, a hilarious late-night lampoon of reality TV ... Other glories tucked into the hour-long show [are] ... both clever and artfully crude ... One of the great pleasures of The Kinsey Sicks is the cast's lovably ribald on-stage alter-egos."

The DVD is a four camera-shoot filmed live over two performances during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, with all the excitement, lack of glamor and, well, Fringe-iness that one expects from a Fringe Festival. And good news: this DVD is being priced at a mere $15.
But wait, there's less! DVDs will be shipped in early December, but if you preorder by 11/21, you can save 10% off the already bargain-priced DVD. Order a copy for yourself and as really dubious holiday gifts for all your loved ones!

The UK Raves About The Kinsey Sicks at The Edinburgh Fringe!

Oct 12, 2015

-The London Times: “Wonderfully smart, politically pointed and liberating … both clever and artfully crude … One of the greatest pleasures it he cast’s lovably ribald on-stage alter-egos.” 
-Scotland on Sunday: “Where to start on the all you can enjoy bundle of fabulousness that is this show … they are glorious, glittery girls who have amazing voices in which they perform superb a cappella version of songs you will never remember the same way again.”

-The List:
 “The Songs are performed with such gusto, skill and a huge sense of fun … a perfect way to end the night. Or, for that matter, to begin it.”

-Chortle: The UK Comedy Guide: “An hour of jaunty high spirits performed with a handbag full of fun.”

-Ed Fest Magazine: ★★★★ “A marvelous combination of comedy, music and incisive social commentary.”

-Arts Awards Voice:
 ★★★★★ “Hilariously over the top … utterly magnificent … with an act staying in my mind so prominently for this long, anything but five stars just wouldn’t fit.”
-The Skinny: ★★★★ “It’s difficult to forget their lyrical parodies … all layered with strong satire.”

-The Arts Desk:
 ★★★★ “Good honest filth … the foursome inject a lot of silliness as well as some subtle political comment, and the hour speeds by.” 

International Day of the Girl

Oct 11, 2015

In 2011, the United Nations General Assembly adopted Resolution 66/170 to declare October 11 as the International Day of the Girl, to recognize girls’ rights and the unique challenges girls face around the world. In honor of the day, we are proud to re-release our 2014 song "What Girls Like", a love letter to the strong, smart, kooky, brilliant, ridiculous, hilarious women in our lives. The ones who tire of being told what they should like and be like. Is it a sweet ditty, a feminist anthem, or both? You decide.

Kinseys in SF and Sacramento Area!

Sep 30, 2015

The world’s favorite (and least favorite) Dragapella® Beautyshop Quartet will give Northern Californians ONE WEEKEND ONLY to see our new show this year. 
Featuring over a dozen new songs, “Chicks with Shticks” is our most interactive show yet! (Come to think of it, is that an incentive or a disclaimer?) Regardless, this is the only chance for Californians to hear our new songs without traveling vast distances or waiting til we release our 9th album, “Eight is Enough”, in the Spring.
For more about these and other lamentably unforgettable Kinsey Sicks shows, check out our calendar.

Kinseys in PA, NY, MN, IA, IL, and KS! CO and CA to follow!

Sep 11, 2015

It will be an exhausting late September and October. Not for us — we’re used to being on the road. But pity the poor people with decorum and judgment who are forced to flee one part of the country after another to escape the scourge of The Kinsey Sicks!
Following the prestigious Harrisburg-New Hope-New York City-Reading-Minneapolis-Cedar Rapids-Chicago-Fort Scott, KS route, The Kinsey Sicks will peddle our dubious wares to gullible inhabitants of large cities and small towns alike, all in the futile effort to find suckers wiling to waste money to see us.
You can be one of those suckers. All it takes is bad taste and a credit card that is not yet maxed out!
Don’t be afraid, dear friend. Let your eyes glide to the right. It feels good, doesn’t it? Aren’t you tired of worrying about silly things like “good choices” and “financial responsibility?” You DESERVE to make a bad impulse decision! Buy tickets now!
