Complete Performer was 45 minutes of silly fun. Not a typical stand up comedy act. Ted Greenberg reminded me of the "performance" type comedy of classic Steve Martin, Andy Kaufman and Albert Brooks from the 1970's. Just be warned that there really is full frontal nudity. (I thought they were kidding.) There is also full rear nudity. There is also some hi - tech multi media segments that did not work the night I went, but the other 'live' parts of show is worth admission.
Quotes & Highlights
- "Outrageously funny." --<em>Backstage</em>
- “Greenberg’s mostly one-man show is drawing crowds…. A definite off center Letterman skit quality….Goes by both fast and enjoyably.” --<em>New York Times</em>
- "Kept a full house roaring." --NYTheatre.com
A mostly one-man comedy show featuring The Late Show with David Letterman's Emmy Award-winning writer Ted Greenberg and his crowd-rousing mascot. Greenberg cracks all entertainment genres (stand-up, mindreading, magic and more) in the hour-long spectacle. A quintessential New York theatre experience with hilarious audience interaction and a free cab ride home for one lucky audience group with Greenberg at the wheel!
Genres include (but are not not limited to) Improv, Mindreading, Sleight-of-hand Magic, Escape Artistry, Mascot/Puppetry, Male Burlesque, “People’s Choice” Awards, Live Simulcast of “beat-the-clock” Cab Ride (to anywhere within 5 boroughs under 15 mins.) and Bob Fosse-esque Dance Choreography.
About the Ticket Supplier: SoHo PlayhouseUnder the new management of Darren Lee Cole and Faith Mulvihill, the newly renovated SoHo Playhouse continues to serve the downtown theater community as an historic 199 seat Off Broadway venue. The Huron Club below is an intimate 55 seat cabaret and bar steeped in the history of Old New York.
The SoHo Playhouse stands on land that was once Richmond Hill, a colonial mansion that served as headquarters for General George Washington and later home to Aaron Burr. Purchased from Burr in 1817, the land was then developed into federalist-style row houses by fur magnate John Jacob Astor.
15 Van Dam Street, was designated at the Huron Club, a popular meeting house and night club for the Democratic Party. The turn of the century brought the Tammany Hall machine to the Huron Club. Prominent regulars included "Battery" Dan Finn and the infamous Jimmy "Beau James" Walker, known as "The night Mayor" due to his predilection for jazz clubs and chorus girls.
The main floor was transformed into a theater in the 1920's, and in the 60's operated as the Village South, home to Playwrights Unit Workshop under the direction of Edward Albee. It was on this stage that Mr. Albee produced many first works of Terrance Mcnally, John Guare, Lanford Wilson, Sam Shephard, AR Gurney and Leroi Jones.
