Want to Play D&D?

Our Dungeons & Dragons comedy podcast Polymorph Self is looking for a new cast member to replace the recently departed Adam Skuse. Departed to the U.K. where he’s still alive.
No previous playing experience is required but you should be enthusiastic about nerd culture and serious about putting yourself out there on a show. For full details and to arrange an audition, please e-mail the show runner Andy Best at soujiro_ab (at) hotmail (dot) com.

Monroe Martin Incoming!

Monroe Martin‘s one of the hottest acts out of NYC right now, recently appearing on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. His storytelling draws on a rough childhood bouncing around foster care homes, and he effortlessly channels hard knocks into comedy gold. His tough exterior doesn’t stop him from finding puppy pugs adorable.

Matt Davis This Week

Matt Davis is back, for two shows at KFK:

With over one million online video views, and five full length comedy albums, Matt Davis is a comedic force of dark and dirty humor.

“He’s funny, filthy, dirty, but SMART funny, filthy, dirty.”
– Dave Attell

“Issuing a comedic stance equal parts brazen honesty and smarmy sarcasm.”
– The Weekly Volcano, Olympia, WA

“His act can be both cerebral, like Carlin’s, and unpredictable, like Pryor’s.”
– The Wichita Eagle

Polymorph Self Joins KFK Podcast Family

KFK has teamed up with an eminent gamemaster to launch a comedic actual play Dungeons & Dragons podcast. We put out a casting call back in June, and we’ve been hard at work since then, putting together the first 15 episodes and now here they are:

In Polymorph Self four writers/comedians, led by Dungeon Master (DM) Andy Best, play the grand-daddy of role-playing games. No previous experience is needed to listen (although we recommend starting with episode 1). Each episode is a forty-five minutes romp through a land of non-ironic elfs, goblins, human hybrids and puns.

kalni-map-color-test-11-1024x744The fantasy game world entirely created by the DM, but the story and decisions are up to our crack team, so not even the DM knows what the hell is going to happen. Listen in and be full of wonder and belly laughs as our team sleuths and battles its way through their epic journey.

New episodes come out every Wednesday on our website, on iTunes, and anywhere else podcasts are available (use this this link to subscribe).

The podcast title, Polymorph Self, refers to a spell from an early version of Dungeons & Dragons that’s used to transform the spell caster into any physical shape they choose. It represents both sides of the podcast: hardcore knowledge and gameplay, fun, fantasy and laughs.
