2004 BackStage Bistro Award Winner Ray Jessel returns to Don't Tell Mama to present hit songs from the ridiculous to the romantic. Singer/songwriter Ray Jessel, who bills himself as the world's only sit-down comedian, has garnered critical raves, as well as a BackStage Bistro Award for his solo show:
"In the royal court of cabaret--with its few kings, multiple queens and legions of ladies-in-waiting--Ray Jessel is the jester. The septuagenarian Welsh-Jewish songwriter's prankishly literate ditties, now available on his debut CD,recall the smart novelty songs of Tom Lehrer, Allan Sherman and other masters of high silliness; he plays piano and talk-sings through his tunes like a Catskills Rex Harrison. This old joker is aces."
