Kiki & Herb Seeking Asylum at Joe's Pub
Kiki & Herb: Seeking Asylum is a wonderful addiion to their body of work. Over the years, they've lost none of their edge. In fact, they've gotten edgier.
Justin Vivian Bond is Kiki and Kenny Mellman is her pianist and comic straight man Herb. They work well together, very well indeed.
Kiki & Herb have released a few albums though there's nothing like seeing them live. They've toured in the USA and in Europe.
I first caught their act, Kiki & Herb Will Die for You, at Carnegie Hall many years ago and immediately became a fan. However, there is nothing better than seeing them in the relative intimacy of a club like Joe's Pub in the East Village. What a great way to celebrate my birthday! Welcome back, Kiki & Herb!
