October 29, 2014 in news by webmaster

kevin_interviewName: Kevin Corrigan
Age: 45
Neighborhood: Tribeca
Occupation: Actor. Host, The Corrigan Show. You can catch the next installment on Friday, November 7 at Union Hall with guests including Natasha Lyonne and Vanessa Bayer. See future dates here.

Who’s your favorite New Yorker, living or dead, real or fictional?
John Lennon. James Cagney. Martin Scorsese. Ken Corrigan (my father).

What’s the best meal you’ve eaten in New York?
Beef Sirloin Schnitzel at Blaue Gans (Tribeca), my mother’s fried chicken (Bronx).

In one sentence, what do you actually do all day in your job?
I spend a good deal of the time trying to keep my insecurities in check.

What was your first job in New York?
I’ve never had a job besides acting. That said, my first job was doing extra work in a movie called Heart. I sat in the bleachers of the Ridgewood Groves Arena, choking on the air in that awful place. Years later, Steve Buscemi told me he was there, too, the same day I was, playing one of the boxer’s corner men.

What’s the last thing you saw on Broadway?
The Cripple of Inishmaan.

Do you give money to panhandlers?
Yes. It could be me out there.

What’s your drink?
Pint of Guinness.

How often do you prepare your own meals?
Not often. But I made crab cakes once. They turned out pretty good.

What’s your favorite medication?
Pot. I mean laughter. Ha-ha. You know what I mean.

What is the best thing in or about your apartment?
The best thing about my apartment is the love my wife puts into it. I also like the arched window. I like knowing that someone’s been looking out this window since 1890.

What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever seen on the subway?
It was on the uptown local. It was departing Times Square at the same time as the 3 express. For a minute, both trains were going uptown, side by side. You could make eye contact with people in the other train. I noticed a man looking right at me from the 3 train. He approached his window. He began banging on it and pointing at me. I swear, it was Gilbert Gottfried! I smiled and waved, which seemed to enrage him. He kept banging the window. I thought he would smash it. Finally, his train pulled ahead of mine, with him banging frantically against the glass.

When was the last time you stayed out past 3 a.m.?
Every night.

Which do you prefer, the old Times Square or the new Times Square?
Old, analogue Times Square. Unpredictable, carnival-like. I remember when Nirvana was an Indian restaurant on the top floor of the ball-drop building. Seeing Penn and Teller performing on the corner of 43rd and Seventh. The guy who walked around in a suit of aluminum cans. The peep shows, the arcades, movie houses, TKTS (when it was a shanty), Howard Johnson’s, Colony Records, Supper Club, Roseland, Manny’s Guitars, the Brill Building. I auditioned for Goodfellas in the Brill Building. Hallowed Ground! Great works of art were produced there. Look what they’ve done to it.

What do you think of Mayor de Blasio?
What has he done to protect small businesses? They keep closing down.

What do you hate most about living in New York?
Corporate-sponsored hypergentrification.

If you could banish one person from New York forever, who would it be?
The landlord that forced Café La Fortuna to close.

When’s the last time you drove a car?
Three weeks ago. My father’s car. He and I (and my brother) take turns using it.

Finish this sentence: The NYPD _____.
Has a difficult job, exacerbated by rogue officers, illegal chokeholds.

Times, Post, or Daily News?
I read the Times. Although I do have an occasional masochistic urge to read the Post. I like to hear all points of view.

Where do you go to be alone?
The Film Forum.

What makes someone a New Yorker?
An open mind, curiosity, courage. Things like that. Flexibility. Sense of humor. You have to have those things. Oh, and money! Lots of it. Actually, these days, if you’ve got the cash, you don’t need the other stuff.

BedfordAndBowery: Corrigan Will Hold Court Again

March 14, 2014 in news by webmaster

The Corrigan Show

From BedfordAndBowery.com:
By Daniel Maurer

“After orchestrating a historic meeting of the minds between Steve Buscemi, Janeane Garofalo, and Anthony Weiner, actor, musician and occasional Greenpoint activist Kevin Corrigan is bringing his eponymous live talk show back to Over the Eight.

The next installment of the Kevin Corrigan Show, Thursday at 8 p.m., isn’t quite as WTF, but should make for scintillating enough convo: Corrigan will host actress Maura Tierney (NewsRadio, Parenthood, The Good Wife, etc.), Reagan Youth guitarist Paul Cripple, and Bridey Elliot from Fort Tilden, the Williamsburg-Rockaway road trip flick that just made a splash at SXSW.

And on March 22, Corrigan will play bass with singer-songwriter Daniel Harnett at Spectrum NYC on Ludlow Street. The bandmates went on The Artie Lange Show last week and Corrigan lamented the loss of downtown like Lakeside Lounge.”

BrooklynVegan: The Kevin Corrigan Show

February 24, 2014 in news by webmaster

Kevin Corrigan

Steve Buscemi, Mirah, Janeane Garofalo & more appearing at ‘The Kevin Corrigan Show’ in Brooklyn this week

From BrooklynVegan.com:
By Klaus Kinski

“This week, the lucky few who can squeeze into the intimate back room of Over the Eight can thrill to not one but two epic installments of “The Talk Show Series Presents!” The shows, which happen on Thursday (2/27) and Friday (2/28), are titled The Talk Show Series Presents: THE KEVIN CORRIGAN SHOW, and are both hosted by wicked famous actor Kevin Corrigan. The Thursday February 27  instalment features Janeane Garofalo, Steve Buscemi (!), music by Daniel Harnett, and a super, super, unbelievable special guest whose identity I cannot even hint at besides saying he is one of NYC’s biggest political figures of all time. If you are lucky enough to be at this show, you’ll be so shocked that this man is sitting just a few feet in front of you that you won’t even be able to applaud; you’ll be too busy processing what you are experiencing. Doors are at 7:30 PM and the show is free. Get there early.

Then On Friday (2/28), enjoy a second installment of The Talk Show Series Presents: THE KEVIN CORRIGAN SHOW. This time, Kevin brings guests Michael Rappaport (currently on Justified), Jonathan Ames (wordsmith, pugilist), Frederic Seaman (John Lennon’s personal assistant!) and music from Mirah (who has a new LP and a headlining show in April). There’s another special musical guest on the bill who I also am unable to divulge, but I believe they will be billed as “Kelly Slater Sangre“. Doors are at 7:30pm and the show is free. Get there early.”
