Broadway and TV Veteran Jason Kravits Taking His Solo, Completely-improvised Comedic Cabaret Show on a World Tour

An entire cabaret, made up on the spot? Who does that?!"

TV and Broadway veteran Jason Kravits pulls off the improbable (or at the very least, unadvisable) in one of the most hilariously spontaneous evenings of cabaret you're likely to see.

Backed by the most daring band in the business, Kravits invents an entire life story in song - music, lyrics, stories, characters - completely from scratch, based solely on audience suggestions.

All patter songs, showstoppers, eleven-o'clock numbers...

All showbiz anecdotes, flashbacks and sob stories...

All casually dropped names, humblebrags and overshares... Made up. On the spot.

Improv, cabaret and comedy... It's a once in a lifetime show, every show! And we're taking it on the road! From New York to Los Angeles to London to Washington, D.C. to Adelaide, Australia: the songs, lyrics, stories, music, and remembrances will be created on the spot in each city thanks to suggestions from the audience.
