at the

Annoyance Theater

Something Wonderful Right Away – The Long Avoided Sequel

 Our Own
JEFFREY SWEET
Performs his...Well, let him Explain it:
 
"The night after our reunion weekend -- For reasons I won't go into, the Annoyance asked me to retitle my solo show, YOU ONLY SHOOT THE ONES YOU LOVE, for the performance I'm giving there on September 11. The title is different, but the show is the one that the NY TIMES, Mike Nichols, Sheldon Patinkin and Edward Albee liked."

One of the hits of 2011's New York Fringe (reprised in their Encore series), a 75-minute yarn about how the Cossacks almost killed Jeffrey Sweet's grandmother and what that has to do with a generation of Jews bringing teeth and cojones (look it up) to American comedy. In response to Joe McCarthy, Nixon and HUAC, wits like Nichols and May, Alan Arkin, Shelley Berman, and Jules Feiffer (and Lenny Bruce, Mort Sahl, Neil Simon and Mel Brooks) invent modern American satire. Stories of mad geniuses, outrageous behavior onstage and off, and how this led to Saturday Night Live, Tina Fey and Stephen Colbert.
