“OH HELLO IS COMING TO BROADWAY. ” states John Mulaney in all caps on his Facebook page. News that is music to the comedy fans’ ears. “We are thrilled to announce that Oh, Hello on Broadway opens at The Lyceum Theater Sept 23rd. Gil & George will be strutting their stuff and tickets are now available.
Part scripted, part spontaneous comedy, and totally unprecedented – Oh, Hello is the no-holds-barred Broadway premier of two groundbreaking, fresh voices in comedy, Nick Kroll and John Mulaney. The duo star as their wildly popular alter egos, Gil Faizon and George St. Geegland – outrageously opinionated, 70-something, native New Yorkers that Kroll and Mulaney first began performing on the alt-comedy stages in NYC. Honed for well over a decade, the duo garnered a cult following as they found their way onto a Comedy Central special, viral videos and late night couches everywhere. Oh, Hello is a laugh-a-minute two man tour-de-force that is at once an affectionate homage to the stage and a skewering of the autobiographical celebrity-driven theatre event of the season.
Oh, Hello is directed by subversive visionary Alex Timbers (Peter and the Starcatcher, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson).
