Gil Faizon and George St. Geegland are headed to Broadway. Nick Kroll and John Mulaney revealed yesterday that their Oh, Hello show will begin a limited Broadway run at the Lyceum Theater this fall. Previews begin on Friday, September 23rd, and the show runs from Monday, October 10th through Sunday, January 8th. Here’s more from the Oh, Hello website:
The two hottest voices in comedy today, Nick Kroll (Comedy Central’s Kroll Show) and John Mulaney (Netflix’s The Comeback Kid), make their no-holds-barred Broadway debuts in OH, HELLO ON BROADWAY! This fall, they take the stage as their acclaimed alter egos, Gil Faizon and George St. Geegland—outrageously opinionated, 70-something, self-proclaimed “legendary” bachelors born and bred in New York. And they’re still unable to swipe a Metrocard in under seven tries.
First seen in New York’s comedy underground over ten years ago, the characters of Gil and George rose to wild popularity on Comedy Central. Now, Broadway gets an evening with the guys The Hollywood Reporter calls “the funniest comic duo of their generation!”
Directed by subversive visionary Alex Timbers (Peter and the Starcatcher, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson), OH, HELLO ON BROADWAY is Gil and George’s pull-no-punches “memoir for the stage”—a laugh-a-minute two-man tour-de-force that’s part scripted, part spontaneous comedy, and totally unprecedented.
