Following the recent announcement of the 2017 Spend the Night with Billy Crystal tour, Billy Crystal has revealed comedian and actress Bonnie Hunt will join him on the first string of dates, set to kick off on Saturday, January 21st in Miami, FL. Making his announcement on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Crystal said of Hunt, “She’s great, and she’s funny and smart and I’m thrilled.”
Spend The Night With Billy Crystal is set for 30+ dates in the New Year, to be announced soon.
“This show is unique. There’s stand-up, and ‘sit down’ which gives me great freedom to tell stories, show film clips and talk about my life and career and the world as I see it,” said Crystal. “It’s loose, unpredictable and intimate. The most fun I’ve had on stage in a long time.”
A stand-up comic turned television star, Crystal found fame as a movie funnyman with starring roles in blockbusters such as When Harry Met Sally, City Slickers and Analyze This. He was much loved as the acclaimed nine-time host of the Academy Awards, an achievement topped only by Bob Hope, who hosted the Oscars 19 times. Also an award winning author, Crystal’s latest memoir, Still Foolin’ ‘Em: Where I’ve Been, Where I’m Going, and Where the Hell Are My Keys? was an instant NY Times best seller.
