Ken's unique and very personal story telling style has gained him a loyal fan base in the area. Using photos, video clips, and his own brand of storytelling Ken has written and performed three one man shows. His first show "Ken Reid's Cusack Attack" was a sold out affair at the Boston Center for the Arts. His second show "Very Special Episode: Portrait of a Pop Culture Victim" was also a sell out in March of 2008. His most recent show “Music to My Years” from October 2009 was widely praised and was the featured pick on Boston.com. Ken has performed at the Charleston Comedy Festival, The AltCom Festival, and The Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival. Recently Ken toured as the opening act for Todd Barry during Barry’s “Substantial Tour of New England”, was chosen by Eugene Mirman as the opening act at Mirman’s record release show, opened for Patton Oswalt at the Wilbur Theater and Northeastern University, opened for Bob Saget during his 2011 New England Summer shows, and performed a series of “live talk show” appearances with Jonathan Katz. Ken was also nominated by the Boston Phoenix as Best Comedian in Boston 2010 and 2012.
