Kiki and Herb Will Die For You

I am trying to get tickets for Kiki and Herb on Broadway. If you haven't seen them before, here's a little taste:

    It's kind of strange watching them do their show for some unknown audience when I've seen that schtick probably half a dozen times now, delivered in exactly those words and exactly those cadences. Kiki almost looks tired of saying "it just wasn't fashionable to be a gay Jew 'tard" etc. That's partly why the Joe's Pub show I saw was so much fun, because she was completely wasted by the midpoint, everyone knew all their standard stuff by heart, and she was totally winging it.

    Totally agreed. At the Joe's Pub show Emma took me to, some drunk frat boy kept hollering MOUNTAIN GOATS until she snarled "if you like that song so much, why don't you go home and sing it yourself?"

    Oh that might have been me. Anyhow yeah a lot is lost with the telephoto distance, too. It's weird seeing her as a little dolly on the screen when I'm used to her being a massive force of nature 15 feet from me.

    I am so curious what changes they've made for Broadway. I feel emotionally invested in the act, since I've seen it so many times over more than a decade.

    also isn't the line "back then it wasn't trendy to be a gay Jewtard like it is today"?

    and i know what you mean about kiki's enthusiasm. it's kind of her private hell to be forced to repeat something funny and cool so many times that she must loathe it by now. it would almost be easier to endure if the material weren't so good.
