Bridget Everett and The Tender Moments with openers Celisse (11/29-12/3), Champagne Jerry & Murray Hill (12/4)
Bridget Everett and The Tender Moments barrel back into Joe’s Pub! Bridget’s legendary and take-no-prisoners live act is a perennial sold-out hit and has garnered a faithful cult following. She has been seen in a string of recent television shows and movies, but to experience Bridget is to experience her live.
Her in-your-face comedy is mixed with one outrageous rocking and original song after another. Dripping with hard-earned sweat in her sparkling and revealing House of Larréon dresses, she swigs from a bottle in a paper bag while telling stories about her dysfunctional family and her struggles with incontinence.
Grab a ticket and hold on tight. Prepare yourself for motor-boating, money notes and Chardonnay soaked memories. Shit is about to get ridiculous. This show is not for the faint of heart. Bring a chaperone. No two shows are the same, ever.
CELISSE (Nov 29-Dec 3)
Celisse is a multitalented artist whose work spans myriad artistic disciplines and inspires all those who bear witness. She laid the roots of her career as a performer in Broadway’s Godspell and Wicked, and on television in 30 Rock and Rescue Me, among others. Since then, Celisse has established herself as a highly sought-after musician, supporting artists ranging from Lizzo (Saturday Night Live) to Jon Batiste (The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Tiny Desk Concert) to Tiana Major9 (Afropunk). She is a member of Ghosts of the Forest with Trey Anastasio and has played alongside music legends Melissa Ethridge (Apollo Theatre) and Mariah Carey (Beacon Theatre). As a musician, she has established strategic partnerships with Gibson, Benson Amps, Korg and Keeley Electronics, among others.
She has lent her musical talents to the choral arrangements for America’s Got Talent and is currently commissioned as composer and orchestrator of a brand-new Contemporary Opera for Catapult Opera. As a solo artist, Celisse played a 2019 headlining tour across Russia and is set to release a full-length album in the Fall of 2021. Her original music, powered by her soulful voice, is hard-rocking and blues-tinged, with hooks that are both infectious and incredibly moving.
CHAMPAGNE JERRY (Dec 4)
Champagne Jerry, a music and performance project of Neal Medly, was named one of the best performers in New York by Time Out, profiled in Rolling Stone, Brooklyn Vegan and Interview magazine and been a musical guest on The Chris Gethard Show on Fusion TV.
MURRAY HILL (Dec 4)
NYC legend, comedian, host, and international entertainer MURRAY HILL is Mr. Showbiz. He’s a relentless shtick slinger, larger-than-life personality, and freewheeling ad-libber. Murray was awarded The New York Voices commission from Joe’s Pub at The Public Theater and debuted ABOUT TO BREAK directed by Scott Wittman. In 2021, he’ll be a recurring character in two new series: Amy Schumer’s Life & Beth (Hulu), Bridget Everett’s Somebody Somewhere (HBO) and will be featured in an episode of Paul Feig’s Welcome to Flatch (FOX).
