Left-Wing Comic Jamie Kilstein to Speak at Penn State this Friday

Left-wing political comic, radio host, and author Jamie Kilstein is coming to Penn State this Friday to share his opinions on a variety of controversial issues.

Kilstein will speak at 105 Forum, at 8:00 p.m., free of charge thanks to the Penn State Atheist Agnostic Association (say those last three words three times quickly).

Kilstein, a Washington D.C. native, rose to prominence after appearances on ConanCountdown with Keith Olberman, and MSNBC’s Up With Chris Hayes. He and his wife, Allison Kilkenny, now host the popular online radio program Citizen Radio. Raised in both a Catholic and Jewish household, Kilstein is now a staunch atheist, which serves as the basis of much of his comedic shticks.

Thanks to his oft extreme political and social views, Kilstein has gained the attention of many popular figures. Glenn Beck once called him “a doofus”, while Robin Williams praised Kilstein for having “the spark that energized my conscience.”

Here’s Kilstein’s most viewed video, on gay marriage in America:
