“At its peak, the flattop was between 8 and 9 inches, but its ego was around 8 or 9 feet.
When it got its own agent, I knew it was time for the flattop to meet its ever impending
On Wednesday, January 16th Kid of the hip-hop group“Kid N’ Play” will bring his brand
of stand up comedy to the Funny Bone Comedy Club for a five date performance. While
Kid may have been the owner of the worlds’ most renown flattop, his talent far exceeds
the length of his hair follicles. Born and raised in NY, NY, Kid first tasted success as one
half of the platinum record selling hip-hop duo, “Kid n Play”.
“The experience I gained within the industry as a hip hop artist has helped me in all
aspects of my career.” said Kid. “It really showed me what it takes to be successful on
the stage as well as behind the scenes.”
Kid’s hip-hop career has proven to be the tip of his talent-laden iceberg. As well as
having his own Saturday morning cartoon, 3 full length feature films, and a comic book
series, Kid most recently hosted the television show “Your Big Break” in addition to
establishing himself in the realm of stand up.
”Stand up at this point for me is like a kid with a new toy. I’m as energized and excited
about this is I was when I first started with Hip-Hop. I’m good friends with Tommy
Davidson, Martin Lawrence, and Bill Maher and all of those guys have really helped me
a lot, but I definitely feel as though I have my own style on when I’m on the stage.”
Though Kid has accumulated more frequent flyer miles than Chuck Yeager, the tour
marks his first ever visit to Omaha. “Colleen [at the Funny Bone] has been fantastic in
getting this all together. I’m definitely lookin’ forward to havin’ a good time and I plan on
sampling all the best and brightest that Omaha has to offer.”
