During every episode of Hot Ones, host Sean Evans inevitably forges a special bond with each of his guests. But when it came to stand-up comedian Kyle Kinane, the attraction was instantaneous.
While scaling the capsaicin-slathered face of Mount Scoville, these bald, hot sauce-loving Chicagoans found common ground on everything from Anthony Bourdain’s tattoos, to the ergonomic inefficiency of salsa jars, to the Windy City’s under-appreciated ska scene.
Kinane (who you might remember from his stand-up specials on Comedy Central, or his gratuitous sex scene at the beginning of Netflix's Love) only eats vegan wings these days, but that doesn’t mean he’s lost his edge.
Fueled by hot sauces like Pain 100% and Mad Dog 357, the scumbag storyteller sounds off on Twitter trolls and Instagram aggregators while sweating out a lifetime of toxins.
