Kevin Kling

Kevin Kling grew up in Osseo, Minnesota and graduated from Gustavus Adolphus College in 1979 with a B. A. in Theatre. He built his reputation in the Twin Cities during the 1990’s with his groundbreaking plays “21A” and “Fear and Loving in Minneapolis,” toured a one man show of “Home and Away” across the US in the early 1990’s, and took his most recent one man show “Freezing Paradise” on the road across the Midwest and a run this past Fall at the Guthrie Lab. While his writing and performing continue unabated, he has also become well known for his regular storytelling contributions to NPR’s “All Things Considered, “ and has recently released his third 5th CD collection, a boxed set titled “Collected Stories” which includes his 4 CD collections of stories and a DVD.

Currently, Kevin is working on compiling a book of short stories, and continues to write plays and stories in a rigorous fashion. He has taught and work shopped as a guest resident at numerous schools, colleges, and festivals around the globe including Gustavus Adolphhus, St. Olaf College, and most recently at Virginia Commonwealth University, and was recently invited to perform at the acclaimed National Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough, Tennessee this past October.

For 2006 expect to hear about Kevin’s dog sledding adventures in Canada with a pack of Australians, a canoe trip with Winona LaDuke, and a tour of Australia, among many other stories, engagements and performances. Stay tuned to www.kevinkling.com for the latest information.
