On his cable-access TV show Let’s Paint TV, John Kilduff makes the average multitasker look like a slacker. A typical episode has him painting a portrait, blending a drink, frying a pickle, chatting with his guest, and dishing out self-help advice to callers, all while speed-walking or jogging on his treadmill. A Bob Ross for the ADD generation, Kilduff is now taking his bizarre Los Angeles–based show on the road as a part of his “Embrace Failure World Tour.” We can’t really decide if it’s supposed to be a joke or not as Kilduff seems quite serious when he shouts into the camera, “We can do it all!” Either way, this live performance at Issue Project Room should prove to be both educational and hysterical.
