Musical-Comedy Duo 'The Jasons' To Headline Don't Tell Mama This Friday
World-famous theater district entertainment destination Don't Tell Mama will feature the musical-comedy duo, The Jasons, this Friday night at 9:30PM as part of their ongoing weekly comedy night.
The Jasons are a musical comedy duo made up of best friends, Jason Blackman and Jason Bader. They started playing music together in high school and have been playing ever since. Influenced by Flight of The Conchords, Tenacious D, and The Smothers Brothers. The Jasons combine their love of absurdly silly premises with undeniably catchy melodies. The Jasons were previously seen at Don't Tell Mama as pre-show performers for Don't Tell Mama's Friday comedy night, now they will take the stage for a headlining set.
"The Jasons are packing up their Hawaiian shirts & guitars and heading to NYC!" Says Jason Bader, one half of The Jasons.
"We're excited to perform in our hometown at this iconic venue," says Jason Blackman, the other half of The Jasons, "our act is both music and comedy, so a cabaret venue couldn't be more appropriate."
