Kevin Flynn is a true renaissance man. The highlights of his life in regards to accomplishments and experiences have been quite numerous and incredibly varied. As a comedian Kevin has performed all over the world for Presidents and Princes, played professional soccer, hosted numerous award winning television shows. Kevin has had film roles along side Jim Carey in Me Myself and Irene, Ben Stiller in the Heart Break Kid, Bill Murray in Osmosis Jones and Sex in the City opposite the beautiful "Charlotte". Kevin recently formed the non-profit, highly successful Nantucket Comedy Festival in 2008. There have been lots of “highlights" in Kevin's career.
But the key Kevin feels is the life that is led “between those highlights.” That place where the majority of our lives are spent and lived and the place where you can truly become your best and happiest. Kevin will take you through many of those moments in a hilarious and often times poignant story of how he learned to enjoy his life “between the highlights….”
After graduating from the University of Massachusetts where he was captain of the soccer team, Kevin went on to play three years of professional soccer in the Major Indoor Soccer League (MISL). Following his soccer career, Kevin transitioned from pro-athlete to professional sportscaster, host and entertainer. He covered World Cup Soccer for Fox Sports, ESPN and ABC. Flynn’s Sports Figure show on ESPN received the POLK Award for excellence in children’s programming.
In 1996, Kevin became the host of The Discovery Channel’s Go For It, an extreme outdoor adventure show where he swam with sharks, jumped out of airplanes and scaled dangerous peaks. The show led Kevin to create his one-man show The Go For It Guy, which won the “Best of Fest” at the Boston Comedy Festival and HBO’s U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen.
Along with continually performing his stand-up, Kevin is also the co-founder and executive director of the Nantucket Comedy Festival and is producing a World Cup Soccer Movie for Imax.
