"Night Of A Thousand Judys" a special presentation of The Meeting* hosted by Justin Sayre, the acclaimed comedy/variety show known for a signature blend of outrageous comedy, politics, culture and everything in between was presented at Merkin Hall last night and BroadwayWorld was there.

The Meeting* is currently enjoying a successful monthly run at Joe's Pub, which hosted the first "Night of a Thousand Judys" in 2011. The Meeting* - which enjoyed successful runs at the Broadway nightclub 54 Below in New York and the Bootleg Theater in Los Angeles - will return to Oasis in San Francisco for its fourth show on Saturday, May 28. The show has been hailed as "delicious and delightfully droll" by The New York Post and "hilarious and sardonic" by The Village Voice. A story for Slate.com called the evening "so deliciously icy that it left me shivering with fear and delight." Justin Sayre and The Meeting* were named among the Top nightclub shows of 2013 by Time Out New York, and received the 2012 Bistro Award for "Comedy Artistry" and a 2011 MAC Award nomination for Best Male Comedy Performance.
