“I’m not good-looking enough to be leading man,” says comedian and actor Pat Kilbane. “I’m just good looking enough not to be (cast as) a total dork, and it’s the same thing in life.” The Dayton native, best known for his three-year stint on FOX’s Mad TV, tries to navigate that middle ground on stage. “I have cool moments and I have dork moments.” While he did many acclaimed impressions on Mad TV, including Howard Stern, Al Gore and Jay Leno, he doesn’t do much of that in his stage act.
“It’s fun on the radio (or in a sketch), but on stage I don’t really have any jokes for them,” he says. He does do a few, though. “There’s definitely a lot of voices and noises, it’s very Jim Carey-esque.” And while he’s very much enjoying doing stand-up, he longs to return to sketch TV. Indeed, he’s working on such a show between gigs. “I think it’s such a great way to express your voice.” Kilbane performs Thursday-Sunday at Go Bananas. $10-$15.
