Official video message: We’re global now at Kingpins, with shows in New York and L.A. as well as Shanghai, Hong Kong and India. And we’ve got shows in Bangladesh and more in the works. Each season, our shows absorb and reflect the culture and vibe of the cities they are in. “From Kingpins, With Love” is a video series that showcases the unique appeal of the show in its various host cities. Check them out if you missed a show or if you were there, so you can relive the good times. Or check them out because they are cool to look at. We don’t mind.
