SHOW HO HO HO BIZ !!! NYC’s beloved comedian and larger-than-life personality MURRAY HILL (aka Mr. Showbiz) gives the much needed gift of holiday cheer and showbiz denial to Joe’s Pub with his legendary Yuletide holiday show: A MURRAY LITTLE CHRISTMAS. If there is anyone to get us in the holiday spirit and forget about the world’s collapse, it's Murray and his fun-loving pals. Everyone is invited and welcome as Murray throws one of his infamous holiday cocktail parties, live on stage. The show will be a cozy, chestnut warming, homey affair featuring an evening of hilarious and wacky skits with the cast, Hot Toddy burlesque, a sleigh full of cheesy holiday songs, plenty of nuts, feel good vibes, fruits and tree trimming.
This year's holiday hams: BRIDGET EVERETT (carnal chanteuse and fearless cabaret star), ANGIE PONTANI (Italian Stallionette burlesque sensation), CARMINE COVELLI (Sebastian The Elf), NIK BAKER (Murray's nephew!). At the chosen-family friendly 4pm matinee show, a BABY (aka Sistillia) and aLITTLE DOG (aka Poppy) will be making special appearances that will sure to get the grumpiest grinch misty-eyed. Live holiday music by the crackling JINGLE BALLS BAND (Jesse Elder–piano, Steve Whipple–bass, Matt Parker–saxophone, Howie Gordon–drums and bells). SANTA CLAUS and RUDOLPH are scheduled to appear. Set design by Mr. Foam Core himself Steven Hammel.
Murray also promises several tender moments when he sings his signature “Have Yourself A Murray Little Christmas” (tissues and ear plugs will be available to the audience upon request). This non-returnable gift of holiday entertainment captures the joy and jubilation, the Murray-ment and magnificence of the holiday season (all denominations, orientations and sexual proclivities will be celebrated).
Have Yourself a Murray Resistmas, you'll be glad you did.
