New book "Running Gag" by Ry Kincaid available online
Ry Kincaid’s theatre-oriented humor column “Running Gag” was published in KC Stage from 2002-2005. His new book compiles all of his articles into one handy paperback, and includes illustrations by Kansas City actor and artist Damian Blake (aka Artemus Vulgaris). The book includes a new introduction by Ry Kincaid and an interview with Ry from the May, 2003 issue of KC Stage.
Running Gag’s comedy-packed essays include such titles as “You Don’t Know Dickens”, “Why People in Theatre Should Run the Country”, “Conversations with Jungle Animals”, “Goin’ to Kansas City, Cinematically”, “A Year in the Life of a Local Theatre Patron”, “Notes of Benjamin Franklin on the Writing of His Autobiography”, and “Theatreless Towns Tour 2004”.
Ry Kincaid’s play Not Just for the Birds was produced by the Barstow School at the 2010 Kansas City Fringe Festival, and the production was taken to the Edinburgh Fringe shortly after. His other plays include Billy and the Two Clefs, The Rajah of Saint Louis, In This Corner, and the one act “Dumb Show”.
His previous humor book, Sexycash, is available at www.amazon.com. His poems have been featured in many journals both nationally and internationally. He has read his work at Queens College, at the invitation of the university. He is also an accomplished songwriter. He lives in Kansas City with his wife, Jennifer, and daughter, Linnea.
Running Gag is currently on sale at www.kcstage.com/books. The cost is $9.95 plus shipping or you can download a pdf for only $4.99.
