Kinky Friedman: Bipolar Tour

KINKY FRIEDMAN GOES BIPOLAR

Kinky Friedman
Everyone's favorite former Texas gubernatorial candidate, political commentator and self-proclaimed "author, columnist, musician and beautician" Kinky Friedman is going bipolar, as in Kinky Friedman's BiPolar Tour, which starts in New England on June 6 and continues through to July 1. As he has done on his recent "sojourns through America," Kinky will be performing solo, dispensing the wisdom of the Jewish troubadour, and signing books.

The Kinkster, whose solo performance has recently been described as "Mark Twain meets Groucho Marx . . . at the corner of Johnny Cash and Lenny Bruce," will be hitting the road fresh on the heels of the release of his brand new book, The Billy Bob Tapes: A Cave Full of Ghosts, co-authored by and about the life and times of Billy Bob Thornton. With a foreword from Angelina Jolie, The Billy Bob Tapes promises "colorful tales of [Billy Bob's] modest Southern upbringing, his bizarre phobias, his life, his loves . . . and, of course, his movie career." And, as Kinky has often said, "the Kinkster will sign anything but bad legislation."
