Kenny Zimlinghaus is all too acquainted with that youthful awkward stage. But it was during that time that the then-chubby kid from Long Island gained a lot of material for a future career in stand-up comedy. Having shed his baby fat, the self-deprecating comic is offering up his style of comedy on the Southern leg of his tour. And he’s stopping by Theatre 99 once again, much to the company’s excitement. “Kenny is an old friend of Theatre 99’s, we’ve always kept in touch, and we love it when he takes time out of busy schedule to make his annual pilgrimage back to Charleston,” says Theatre 99 co-founder Brandy Sullivan. And if Zimlinghaus’ face strikes you as familiar, that’s because he’s appeared almost every year in the Charleston Comedy Festival. Or maybe his voice does? Well, that’d be because he co-hosted and worked as the head writer for 96 WAVE’s Storm and Kenny Show.
