KIKI & HERB: SEEKING ASYLUM!
Special Broadcast of Iconic Joe’s Pub Concert
Created By Justin Vivian Bond and Kenny Mellman
This season, The Public offers an antidote to all our isolation anxiety with the “bombastic, razor sharp & triumphant return” (W Magazine) of the incomparable Kiki & Herb. After major successes at Carnegie Hall, on Broadway, and on the International Concert Circuit, cabaret legends Kiki and Herb took a break from the live performance grind to explore other opportunities. Kiki’s sabbatical included a stint as a Middle East correspondent for Al Jazeera, while Herb found himself in hot water—both literal and proverbial—in Southeast Asia. After their dramatic escapes, from undisclosed locations in Syria and Thailand, Kiki and Herb immediately returned to Joe's Pub with a brand new show, KIKI & HERB: SEEKING ASYLUM! — an instant cabaret classic that crashed the Joe’s Pub website the moment it was announced. Enjoy in the “demented, raw and pointedly political” (The New Yorker) ecstasy of Justin Vivian Bond and Kenny Mellman’s sold-out 2016 show, streaming for free, on demand, for a limited time.
