Emmy-Award Winning Comedy Writer Is THE COMPLETE PERFORMER, Letterman alum, Ted Greenberg Brings Ano
A Mostly One-Man Comedy Show featuring Letterman Show’s Emmy Award-winning writer, Ted Greenberg and his crowd-rousing mascot. Combines stand-up, mindreading, magic, a half-time show, full-frontal nudity and a cab ride home.
While Ted Greenberg is excited about the show and all of the accolades from the 2008 New York Fringe Festival, one issue has kept him subdued. “Every time it’s my turn to shine, my dad has to come out of hiding to take my spotlight,” says Ted. His father is respected economic guru, Ace Greenberg, who was the former Chairman of the Board of Bear Stearns and is currently a director of Bear Stearns and non-executive director of Viacom. With the financial crisis, it is understandable that many people want to hear from him. The senior Greenberg appeared on Charlie Rose last week to discuss Wall Street, but didn’t mention his son’s upcoming shows.
Ted promises to work out his daddy issues on stage. The Complete Performer is full of rapid-fire arrays of magic, mind reading, improv, full frontal nudity and the always popular audience awards. Plus a half-time show complete with the crowd-rousing mascot. A lucky (or unlucky) audience member will be driven home in a cab by Ted (he still has his hack license).
The Complete Performer plays Saturday nights at 10:30pm, from November 8th thru December 27th, at the Huron Club downstairs at the Soho Playhouse, 15 Vandam Street, between 6th Avenue and Varick. Tickets are $15 and may be purchased by calling 212/691-1555 or by visiting www.SohoPlayhouse.com.
