Set in a fictional Indiana town during the Great Depression, Jim Leonard Jr.'s moving drama focuses on the friendship between an ex-preacher from Kentucky and a disturbed young boy. The boy -- deeply traumatized by a near-drowning in his past that led to the death of his mother -- is now terrified of water, but also gifted with the ability to divine its location. As the bond between these two grows, the preacher works with the boy to overcome his crippling fear of water. And when the townspeople, desperate for a spiritual leader, mistake an eventual bathing for a baptism, their confusion leads to some significant consequences in The Diviners. Learn More

As a HUGE fan of stand up comedy, I think Colin Kane has a bright future in comedy. It helps that he's good looking, but he should slow up on using the F word a bit. Using it every other word is distracting and doesn't make a comedian funnier. He's got a good routine and relies a lot on shock value and raunchiness, but it works for him. I'd see him again, but I'd go with a date and not a family member since Colin mostly discusses bedroom humor.

not for the overly sensitive and politically correct. there's no BS with colin kane. he was a little off his game this night because he was trying out new material. still laughed enough to know i'm going to see his next gig when he's here again.
A born-and-bred New Yorker, Colin Kane has been laying the comedy smackdown on packed houses since 2002, forging his career on the New York comedy circuit. Playing to audiences in New York, Los Angeles, Boston, D.C., Chicago, Mexico City, Norway and Stockholm, Kane has proven his acidic brand of humor has a wide and multifarious appeal. His ability to convert audiences into staunchly loyal fans has helped him spread his uniquely perverse brand of comedy to a worldwide stage.
Billed by Dennis Miller as “the next really big comedian” and described by fans as “acerbic and brilliant,” Colin Kane nailed down the winning spot on Howard Stern’s Kill or Be Killed and is a serial guest on the zenith of early morning radio shows, Opie and Anthony. Kane’s talent and prolific vocation have allowed him the opportunity to wor for everyone from the racially charged Paul Mooney to the deeply perceptive Jerry Seinfeld, playing on his ability to appeal to a diverse cross section of audiences.
Kane’s unequaled defining factor is his knack for incorporating improv into his sets, maintaining a level of surprisingly originality in each performance. Rarely does a comedian come along that has the verbal agility to spin rapid fire wit and comebacks so smoothly.
After a successful two-year run at the world-renowned Caroline’s on Broadway, Kane has continued his meteoric risei n the comedy scene by playing to 7,000 fans at Madison Square Garden Theater and headlining at Gotham Comedy Club — the current nexus of NYC comedy. With his sardonic banter and brazen observations, Kane has solidified his reputation as an entertainer who can not only fill seats, but enrapture the general masses and create a legion of unwavering fans.
