Kinky Friedman

Kinky Friedman's career is not like yours. It doesn't matter who you are, because you're not a satirical, smartass Jew from Texas known as the Lone Star State's Mark Twain. And he is. The first full-blooded Member of the Tribe to grace the stage at the Grand Ole Opry; the first independent candidate for Texas governor in 169 years; and the first time he's been in Seattle for 20 years. Expect the hits -- "They Ain't Makin' Jews Like Jesus Anymore" and "Asshole from El Paso" to be sure -- and some lite literary fare from a new release, his 29th, entitled "Heroes from a Texas Childhood." And don't expect to see anyone quite like him ever again. With Little Jewford, Rat Malone. CALEB HANNAN
