Spotlight on: "Oh, Hello on Broadway"
Part scripted, part spontaneous comedy, Oh, Hello is the no-holds-barred Broadway premiere of two groundbreaking, fresh voices in comedy, Nick Kroll and John Mulaney.
ABOUT THE SHOW
Nick Kroll and John Mulaney star as their alter egos, Gil Faizon and George St. Geegland— a pair of outrageously opinionated, 70-something native New Yorkers and self-proclaimed "legendary" bachelors of the Upper West Side—who deliver their “memoir for the stage” in a show that’s part scripted, part spontaneous comedy.
- The “Too Much Tuna” segment of the show invited special guest stars to join the performers on stage at each performance. Guests included Alan Alda, Alex Brightman, Stephen Colbert, Will Ferrell, Whoopi Goldberg, Seth Meyers, and Conan O'Brien, among others.
- Kroll and Mulaney are said to have developed Faizon and St. Geegland after watching two middle-aged men wearing turtlenecks and blazers purchase separate copies of Alan Alda's book Never Have Your Dog Stuffed: And Other Things I've Learned at Manhattan’s famed Strand used bookstore.
Kroll and Mulaney first began performing Oh, Hello
on the alt-comedy stages in NYC. The show gained a wide audience on Comedy Central’s The Kroll Show
, and was presented Off Broadway in 2015, as well as in other cities nationwide.
