Thought-provoking, Surprising, Entertaining, Had some ugly cry, Standup magician

See it if I didn’t know the dude, but became his fan. Master standup comedian with heartfelt autobiographical stories to share. Walk out less lonely.

Don't see it if It’s not a theatrical production. No plot, no dance, some goofy singing tho. 75min only. Somewhat poetic, super healing 🫶🏼

New York Theatre Guide

"The most powerful image that remains with me from my performance is seeing a pregnant person sobbing at the curtain call. If you're looking for an evening of pure comedy, this isn't it, but it is an evening of catharsis."

" 'Sorry for Your Loss' is a great opportunity to get to know his [Kayne] unique voice, and to laugh in the face of death even while recognizing that it will come for us all."

"Josh Sharp directs, and while the focus is on the storytelling and engagement with the audience, there is a good deal of theatricality, especially in the last several minutes of the show...'Sorry for Your Loss' demonstrates, their [Audible] shows are well worth seeing."

"Sorry for Your Loss" is both hilarious and painful as it is meant to be, dealing with the topics of death and grief but in a light fashion. Michael Cruz Kayne, stand-up comedian, staff writer for "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" and the host of the podcast "A Good Cry," has a genial delivery much like Mike Birbiglia whom he resembles. Like Birbiglia, he also weaves personal anecdotes around the story he is telling. Dressed in blue jeans and a hoody (from designer Rodrigo Muñoz), it is as though he is talking to you from his own living room.

"Kayne builds subtly to big emotional moments effortlessly and is self-deprecatingly, gently hilarious. 'Sorry For Your Loss' is that rare thing – smart, funny, warm, moving and only 75 minutes long."

"I have not experienced a show so personal and funny and graceful before, and I encourage you to take yourself and experience every moment of the evening. And remember you will laugh and feel joy as well as touch your own grief. There are two sides to grief, go discover them."

Sorry for Your Loss is a perfect title, summing up in four words the impossibility we all feel in consoling the aggrieved. Yet, for all its obvious banality, the phrase offers a convenient way to express the inexpressible by showing that, even though we can’t do anything about it, we care, at least enough to share the sentiment....Kayne’s monologue—it’s hard to call it a “play”—at least allows us to agree that there are no simple solutions to handling grief, or commenting on it, while at the same time offering the opportunity to laugh at the dilemma.
