Live Nation presents New York's beloved comedian and international entertainment phenomenon Murray Hill's all new The Murray Hill Show, featuring special guests Ad-Rock, Peaches, Bridget Everett and Champagne Jerry for one night only - March 8th at 8:00 p.m. at Gramercy Theatre. This show marks Murray's first appearance as a headlining comedian at The Gramercy.
Murray Hill, fabulous star of stage, music videos, laptops and big screens alike, has dazzled audiences the world over with his unique brand of interactive humor and old school showbiz, with a twist. He's been touring the country several times over with burlesque star Dita Von Teese to sold-out audiences and has just wrapped his first season of SHOWBIZ, a pop-culture comedy show, on MTV's new network.
The Murray Hill Show, a rip-roaring comedic variety show, will feature loads of Murray's infamous ad-lib comedy, stand-up, singing, dancing, raucous audience interaction and who knows what else -anything goes when Murray is at the helm. Murray will be joined by his swinging band donned in their rented tuxedos: The Rimshots (Jesse Elder-piano, Matt Parker-sax, Kenbal Zwerin-bass, Arthur Vint-drums).
To say the show's line-up is explosive would be an understatement. This show is the first time these pioneering stars will be on the same stage together. Each guest will perform a signature act/song, join Murray on stage for some schtick, and perform all together in a big finale! This star-packed show with our SHOWBIZ leader will set Saturday night back into primetime with a SHOWBIZ showdown unlike any other!
You can be sure that the instant Murray and his friends take the stage, anything can happen! Murray has the sure-fire skill to get an audience involved in the fun, guaranteeing that the show will have a spontaneous, thrilling edge unlike any other. A natural showman, Hill's down-to-earth approach has made him the darling of downtown entertainment seekers with his consistently sold-out shows for more than a decade.
