These are your only chances to see our unforgivably fun new show “Chicks with Shticks” this year before we start preparing for our holiday and election year shows. You wouldn’t want to deprive yourself of that, now, would you? See calendar for details.

The UK Raves About The Kinsey Sicks at The Edinburgh Fringe!
Sep 15, 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.”

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!

New Music Video: "Putin in the Ritz!"
Jul 20, 2015
We know that there is no news that does not involve Donald Trump. However, it may not have escaped your attention entirely that a certain Vladimir Putin (also known as the “Donald Trump of Russia”, only much richer and less humble) remains the head of state of a country next to/inside of Ukraine.
The Kinsey Sicks have released a musical love-letter to him, intriguingly filmed in an undisclosed military installation, as only America’s Favorite Dragapella® Beautyshop Quartet can. You will undoubtedly want to watch it right now, instead of reading the rest of this crap. If you like it, please share it with your many friends. If you hate it, please share it with your many enemies.
Jun 26, 2015The Kinsey Sicks thank everyone who supported the Kinsey Kickstarter and the Kinsey Sickstarter campaign. These fabulous people's names are displayed here on our original fundraising page.
Jun 26, 2015We, The Kinsey Sicks, condemn the Supreme Court's decision to allow same-sex couples to marry because it ruins the sanctity of our song, “(Locked Out of the) Chapel of Love”. Check it out here as part of our #ThrowbackThursday (since yesterday it was still illegal).
New Music Video: "Get a Gun"
Jun 24, 2015
Earlier this year The Kinsey Sicks performed and recorded a biting new original song, “Get a Gun”, that has gotten a phenomenal response from audiences. As a result, the group filmed a video of the song late last month and have been editing ever since. Given the horrors of the Charleston shootings, the group debated releasing the video now that it’s finally ready, since the song - while clearly serious in its content - takes a sardonic tone in mocking American’s obsession with guns.
We’d be interested in your opinion: tone deaf? too soon? or just right? (If you just love gun proliferation we’re a little less interested in your opinion.)
Thank you for sharing,
The Kinsey Sicks
