Something Wonderful Right Away – The Long Avoided Sequel
Performs his...Well, let him Explain it:
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.
224 S. Michigan Ave
