FOR RELEASE: Comic Matt Kissane releases his web series first season on DVD!  Includes several comedy clips with some of Chicago’s best comic actors!
Comedian Matt Kissane has spent the better part of the past twelve months producing and hosting his very own internet web series focusing on people and places in his native Chicagoland.  The series called “Live From Chicago It’s Matt Kissane” has visited some interesting establishments like Exit Punk Bar, Platterpus Records, Fitzgerald’s Night Club and Billy’s Pizza Dugout.  “Each location we’ve visited I tried to have sort of a theme running throughout the webisode.” says Kissane “We went to a chocolate shop and an adult gift shop on Valentines Day and then on St. Pat’s we learned how to make several drinks at the Elmhurst Public House.”  Kissane has put all thirteen webisodes together plus some seriously funny comedy skits with actors Hugh Callaly and Joe Farina on one DVD.
