2004 BACK STAGE BISTRO AWARD WINNER RAY JESSEL RETURNS TO DON'T TELL MAMA TO PRESENT HIT SONGS FROM THE RIDICULOUS TO THE ROMANTIC in Life Sucks...and Then You Die.
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."- Adam Feldman...TIME OUT New York
"Ray Jessel is living and beaming proof that you can still be potent even if you can no loger break-dance on the corner. You can even be more effective than
ever. Laughs by the load from the Einstein look-alike" - Finkle....VILLAGE VOICE
