Jackie Hoffman Brings HEBE FOR THE HOLIDAYS to Joe's Pub Tonight
Comedian and Broadway actress Jackie Hoffman's long awaited return to Joe's Pub at The Public has finally arrived. Beginning tonight, December 20 - December 24 at 7:30 PM, the Second City alum will present the brand new show Hebe for the Holidays. Tickets are on sale now at www.joespub.com.
In Hebe for the Holidays, Twitter, the Hamptons and America's obsession with guns have entered Jackie's world, and she's not having it one bit.
If you want the perfect antidote to the global conversation of love, embrace the hopelessness and let Jackie Hoffman suck the joy out of your holiday season with an evening of anger and song.
Directed by Michael Schiralli with Musical Direction by Bobby Peaco, Hebe for the Holiday promises topics ranging from what happens to a Jewish, straight woman on a gay cruise during Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur and how an unwanted aging actress survives in a New York overtaken by billionaire toddlers.
