 Kinky Friedman Biography

Sometimes outrageous, but always outrageously funny, Kinky Friedman is a humorist and satirical songwriter with a raucous appeal that stretches from the big sky of Texas to the elite corridors of New England to the wild outback of Australia. Not one to mince words, his musings on the ways of the world and posturings on the political landscape showcase his common sense perspective laced with a quixotic wit.

When Friedman ran for Governor of Texas in 2006, he ran as the independent spirit candidate, one with a no-nonsense appeal and a clever handle on the issues. It was a huge leap from his larger-than-life persona.

As a writer, his collection of books such as Cowboy Logic: The Wit and Wisdom of Kinky Friedman read like his songs hilarious, iconoclastic, and ribald. In 2007, he dives into political wranglings with his new book, You Can Lead a Politician to Water, But You Cant Make Em Think.

An icon of American culture and humor, Friedman has also become an entrepreneur, author of a series of best-selling crime fiction and the founder of the Utopia Animal Rescue Ranch. With abundant charm, Friedman offers an incisive discourse on people, politics, and life in general. Time spent with him is a once-in-a lifetime unforgettable experience.
