Humor for soul folk (though not limited thereto) is coming up in strong supply in Minneapolis with the madcap antics of prodigal cutup Fancy Ray McCloney, crazy veteran clown Chik'n Wing doing his thing and stand-up ace/wry poet/spoken wordsmith K Jay.

K Jay (aka Kelechi Jaavaid), who recently sat in at Sol Testimony's "Soul Sounds Open Mic & Jam Session" and floored the crowd, is an alumni of Dudley Riggs' Brave New Workshop. From there he has honed razor-sharp skill, performing at Acme Comedy Club, among numerous area venues, as well as opening for BET comics throughout the U.S. He's been featured on KSTP-TV's "Focus 5" Spotlight, KMOJ Radio, and opened for Patrice Rushen at Orchestra Hall. Last summer saw his solo show "It's Hard Being Tall - Blackman Changing Hats" debuted at the Minnesota Fringe Festival. He returns to the Fringe with a brand new offering, "K Jay and Late Nite Poet." Take it from this reviewer; the man is a deft hand at understated hilarity. "K Jay and Late Nite Poet" is at Patrick's Cabaret, 3010 Minnehaha Ave. S., Minneapolis. For dates and times contact the Minnesota Fringe Festival (www.fringfestival.org). As for getting hold of his CD, The Art of Life, it's available at www.CDBaby.com/KelechiJaavaid and This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
