Bob Saget on WOR Radio Dec.5

Actor and comedian Bob Saget, who recently made his Broadway debut in the Tony Award winning musical The Drowsy Chaperone, will sit down live with WOR Radio's Joan Hamurg live from a remote broadcast from Sardi's Restaurant on Wednesday morning, December 5 at 9AM. Saget will discuss both starring on Broadway in the hit musical, and hosting new episodes of the NBC show "1 vs. 100."

"The Joan Hamburg Show" airs daily on WOR Radio (710 AM) from 9-11AM.

Saget returns to the New York stage following an acclaimed Off-Broadway debut in Paul Weitz' play Privilege in 2005. He is the host of the hit NBC game show "1 vs. 100," and known worldwide for his television roles, for which he set a precedent by simultaneously starring in two top-ten primetime series – the long-running sitcom "Full House," while also serving as the eight year host of "America's Funniest Home Videos." Saget recently guest-starred on NBC's "Law & Order: SVU," HBO's "Entourage," and was critically hailed for his appearance in the documentary The Aristocrats.   His HBO special, "Bob Saget: That Ain't Right," is now airing and has been released on DVD.

The most celebrated musical of the 2006 season and the recipient of thirteen major awards, The Drowsy Chaperone received the most Tony Awards of any musical -five in total - including Best Book and Score, seven Drama Desk Awards including Best Musical, four Outer Critic's Circle Awards including Outstanding Score and the Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best Musical.

The Drowsy Chaperone began previews April 3, 2006 and opened on Broadway on May 1, 2006 at the Marquis Theatre (1535 Broadway).

The Drowsy Chaperone is directed and choreographed by Tony Award nominee Casey Nicholaw (Spamalot), with music and lyrics by Tony Award winners Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison and a book by Tony Award winners Bob Martin and Don McKellar.

"To chase his blues away, a modern day musical theatre addict known simply as "Man in Chair" (Bob Saget) drops the needle on his favorite cast album – the 1928 musical comedy The Drowsy Chaperone. From the crackle of his hi-fi, the uproariously funny musical magically bursts to life on stage. We are instantly immersed in the hilarious tale of a glamorous bride and her uproarious wedding day, complete with thrills and surprises that take both the cast (literally) and the audience (metaphorically) soaring into the heavens. Man in Chair's infectious love of The Drowsy Chaperone speaks to anyone who has ever been transported by the theater," explain press notes.

The Drowsy Chaperone plays Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings at 8:00 p.m. and Sunday evening at 7:00 p.m. with matinees on Wednesdays at 2:00 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday at 3:00 p.m. Tickets prices range from $26.25 - $111.25 (including $1.25 facility fee) and are available through Ticketmaster (212-307-4100), online at www.ticketmaster.com or in person at The Marquis Theatre box office (1535 Broadway).  Visit www.DrowsyChaperone.com
