Comedian Kyle Dunningan Performing at Laugh Out Loud All Weekend

For just the price of a lap dance at one of those fancy local strip clubs, San Antonians will get a chance to see the comedy stylings of writer, producer, stand-up and award-winning lyricist Kyle Dunnigan, the least popular ex-boyfriend of comedian Sarah Silverman.

Besides that designation, Dunnigan earned an Emmy in 2015 for the song “Girl You Don’t Need Makeup” featured on the Comedy Central series Inside Amy Schumer. The boy-band pop single starts off with a guy telling a girl she is pretty without makeup, but then changes his tune when he actually sees her au naturel. “It’s like I tore up the shag carpet assuming there were hardwood floors underneath, but it turned out to be just dirty linoleum.”

Best known for starring as a closeted serial killer on the first three seasons of Reno 911!, Dunnigan, who could pass for Zach Braff and James Roday’s love child, has a mass following on social media. Online, he entertains his fans with impressions of Donald Trump and the Kardashians via face swapping filters and shares photos and videos of his toothy dog Olive.

$20, 8pm & 10:15pm Fri July 20-Sat July 21, 8pm Sun July 22, Laugh Out Loud Comedy Club, 618 NW Loop 410, (210) 541-8805,
