NEW YORK, June 1, 2010 — Every middle class man wants a loving wife, financial stability … and three French women in his bedroom at night! Middle class guy Juston McKinney expresses these desires and more in the World Television Premiere of “Juston McKinney: A Middle-Class Hole,” a one-hour stand-up special premiering on COMEDY CENTRAL on Saturday, June 26 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT.
While still embracing his trailer park roots, the sarcastic McKinney reveals the troubles with male wedding rings, why it just isn’t right for it to snow on Martin Luther King Day and what it really means to be “cock-eyed.” Performing in Spokane, Washington, McKinney captivates his sold-out audience by exploring the similarities between frat parties and his two-year-old son’s day care center (magic marker doodled on your face, anyone) and the absurdity of receiving scratch-off tickets as a Christmas gift. His quirky facial expressions, tell-it-like-it-is attitude and guy next door personality make McKinney a middle class guy with high class humor.
McKinney, once a police officer in rural Maine, planted his comedic seeds in New York City comedy clubs over a decade ago. After receiving development deals from both Warner Brothers and CBS Productions, he is now a stand-up fixture on COMEDY CENTRAL, having starred in a half dozen shows, including his own half-hour comedy special. McKinney has made numerous late night stops on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and his TV and movie credits include “The King of Queens,” the Sidney Lumet drama “100 Centre Street” and “The Zoo Keeper,” a new Kevin James movie set to open this fall.
