FRIDAYS, JULY 18 & AUG 1 at 10pm
MURRAY HILL & THE RIMSHOTS
The Laurie Beechman Theatre inside West Bank Café, 407 W42 St at 9th Ave
Murray Hill brings his infamous “act,” MURRAY HILL & THE RIMSHOTS, a one-man comedy explosion with a swinging band to Times Square. The show will feature Hill’s trademark blend of hammy Borscht Belt humor, irreverent monologues, joint-popping slapstick, so-bad-it’s-gotta-be-good crooning, and freewheeling ad-libbing. He’ll regale the audience with tales from his early showbiz days—like getting discovered by Don Rickles while bussing tables at The Copacabana; his fifth career comeback and chronic middle-aged crisis; and, of course, cavorting with and losing the ladies (including one of his 12 ex-fiancés, who dumped him for a younger, dashing and cerebral Regis Philbin). In short, be prepared for a mix of old-fashioned highball class with madcap contemporary humor and Hill-arious improv — all underscored by a 4-piece band.
Sept 3 – Sept 20, 2014
