Onstage, Kevin Bozeman has a unique voice, drawing humor out of his everyday life experiences and parenting. "That's what most of my time goes to," he says. "I have two boys, and I put a lot of time and energy into my kids. I also dabble in politics and current events." For example, Bozeman can't figure out why some people get so riled up over national politics. "It's such a flawed process. It just really amazes me how people lose friends over their political beliefs. But for these same people, politics doesn't directly affect them." He explains: "Their day-to-day lives are still there, and it has nothing to do with who is in the Oval Office. The local politicians that work in the neighborhoods? Those are the ones that have the influence. Those are the ones you have to get after. The people that get paid the least attention are the ones that directly affect you." One thing that does affect him is his love of sports. "I'm a huge sports fan," he says. "Like, an uncomfortable sports fan. It's uncomfortable to be friends with me sometimes, that's how much I love sports." He mostly follows the big three — baseball, basketball, and football — though as a Chicago native he also tries to keep up with hockey's Blackhawks. "I'm a United States guy, so I followed the World Cup as best I could, too." But the subject of sports is rarely a joking matter. "I get fired up about sports so much I don't even find humor in it. I find humor in a lot of other things, like my shortcomings as a person." 18+.
