STAGE TUBE: Nia Vardalos and Jamie M. Fox Of MAZELTOV COCKTAIL Featured on Funnyordie.com
Nia Vardalos, who penned her own solo show My Big Fat Greek Wedding, appears with Jamie M. Fox in this Funny or Die video that gives an inside look at what it's like to be a celebrity assistant and star in your own off-Broadway show. My Big Fat Greek Wedding was seen by Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson who produced it for the big screen. It is the highest-grossing romantic comedy in history. MazelTov Cocktail runs until February 20 and has not been seen by Hanks or Wilson, yet.
Serving up laughs with the absurdities we tell ourselves to get through the hard times, MazelTov Cocktail follows a Jewish woman as she juggles her job as a personal assistant, her cocaine addicted (and recently jailed) brother and the neurotic parents who spawned them. A veteran of the Comedy Central Stage and Second City, Jamie M. Fox stars in this solo dark comedy.
