Meet our readers: Kyle Thiessen


Kyle Thiessen emerges from creative hibernation every few years to renew his "artist card" by phoning in the bare minimum. Previous endeavors include a 2011 YouTube parody—the hastily-researched Fake Month at the Museum—as well as a short film in 1999 that won him a ticket to the Golden Globe Awards, where he peed next to John Lithgow.

In addition to YouTubing and peeing, Kyle has spent his adult life as a caricature artist, an IMAX projectionist, and a corporate PowerPoint designer for a multinational conglomerate of high-tech weapons systems and golf cart manufacturers. Until he fills the hole in his resume where "zamboni driver" should be, he'll be hard at work on the perfect Die Hard screenplay and occasionally tweeting @lazycartoonist.

Please join Kyle and all our accomplished readers for Line Break #11, Saturday, September 2, 3:00 p.m. at Q.E.D. in Astoria. Tickets are only 7 bucks!
