Stewart & Williams Set for Fame Becomes Me, 12/6 & 12/7
"The Daily Show"'s Jon Stewart and "NBC Nightly News" anchor Brian Williams will be the latest guests plucked from the audience for an improvised interview with "celebrity interviewer" Jiminy Glick at Martin Short's Fame Becomes Me. The show plays at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre (242 West 45th St).
Stewart is set for December 6th and Williams will appear on December 7th.
Since the show began performances on Broadway in July, Glick has hosted an array of A-list stars including Jerry Seinfeld, Steve Martin, Nathan Lane, Rosie O'Donnell, Conan O'Brien, Rosanne Barr, Jimmy Fallon, Regis Philbin, Al Roker, Stephen Colbert, Stanley Tucci, Dennis Miller, Kristin Chenoweth, James Belushi, Tracey Ullman, Martha Stewart, Larry King and Bette Midler.
The show "features Short in a comic tour de force guiding us through an improbable version of his life story. Backed by a brilliant cast of top Broadway performers (who constantly steal focus from Mr. Short when he's not looking), Short's transparent play for love and attention asks the burning question, does an autobiography really have to be true?," state press materials.
