I’m sitting here trying to figure out why I’ve never seen Matt and Kim before now. And you should be too, if you haven’t had the experience. I’m not sure I’ve ever been to a show that incorporated balloons, confetti, and dildos. Oh, and the crowd-surfing blow up dolls. No seriously. I’m pretty sure that Kim is my spirit animal because she uses the word fuck in every imaginable way AND shows her titties. As a little titty gal, I can appreciate! In all seriousness, Matt and Kim came out with boombastic energy and it permeated the entire venue. At some point, I think you’ll be able to see a bit of the shenanigans because they sent a camera-on-a-stick out into the crowd. I watched it move from the floor, into the seats, and back again. And the footage will be stellar.
Catch this show. Matt and Kim entertain in every possible way. I’ll think about this night in the coming days and I will giggle to myself.
Check out their tour dates. Go to a show. You’ll thank me.
