92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A With Kevin Janus


This Monday was Thanksgiving in Canada, and we spent the day being thankful for Canadian comedian Kevin Janus. Kevin’s taking a break from trolling Toronto Blue Jays stats blogs long enough to host The Comedy Igloo this Thursday at 92YTribeca (Oct 13), with special guests Leo Allen and Matt McCarthy. We’re really looking forward to hearing more about Celine Dion and the “Friday Night Lights” season 2 murder plotline.

Super Kevin Janus fans (and stalkers), can get a bigger fix below, with the 92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A With Kevin Janus. That’s where you’ll learn you won’t find him on Facebook. “I’m a conscientious objector to Facebook,” he told us.

Where do you go for news when you start your day?
To keep up with serious Canadian news, like the guy who broke into Celine Dion’s house and took a bath, I follow CTV News on Twitter and read The Toronto Star online.  For more trivial news, I read the print edition of The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times online. 

What are your favorite websites?
Honestly, I don’t really go directly to websites anymore.  I follow every one of my favorite websites on Twitter. All 846 of them. One of the few websites I do still visit directly is called Batter’s Box.  It’s a nerdy, stats-heavy Toronto Blue Jays baseball blog. Because yes. Canadians do love baseball. 

How much do you use Twitter and Facebook (or other social networking services)?
I use Twitter all the time.  But I refuse to have a Facebook account.  I’m a conscientious objector to Facebook. I’m sorry, what? No. That’s perfectly consistent.

92Y Video: The Jewish Connection: Sukkot Rabbi David Kalb

The Jewish Connection: Sukkot with Rabbi David Kalb: “I think,” Rabbi Kalb said, “what it’s really talking about is the experience of journey. That’s what Sukkot is really about… A journey to transform ourselves as people.”

Tomorrow, join us for a Sukkot Open House. And after the jump below, read Rabbi Kalb’s script for the Sukkot video.
