Kevin Gillespie keeping busy until Gunshow

While the opening of his new restaurant, Gunshow, is a few months away, chef Kevin Gillespie hasn’t been taking that time off (as if the executive chef and owner of a restaurant opening in 2 months has a bunch of free time.)

According to Gillespie’s Facebook feed, he will be serving as Roastmaster for the Friar’s Club Roast of Padma Lakshmi this season, and he filled a few month’s worth of free nights with a series of custom private dinners for groups up to 12. All of Gillespie’s nights dedicated for these private dinners booked within only a few hours of his announcements about the program on Facebook.

On a related note: I make for a charming dinner guest and swear to say kind things about the décor of your home if you need someone to fill a final seat at one of those…

And now, Gillespie is returning to the world of animation. After his appearance on Adult Swim’s Squidbillies in 2011, Gillespie has now been upgraded to the FX network where he will appear on the show Archer. In this episode, Kevin will play a long haul trucker that “lends Archer a hand, but Archer quickly comes to regret [his] help.”

Gillespie’s episode of Archer airs this Thursday night on FX.

Guessing “Gunshow” is in reference to his proclivity to show off his tattooed arms, like a pro wrestler? Just a hunch.

Roasted Padma? Bacon jam with that?

Using the name “Gunshow” is a way to filter customers without really trying, I suppose. I’ll give it a shot!
