HA! The Musical Goes Inside Standup Comedy

The new musical is set to make its New York debut.

Comedian Christian Finnegan will perform with the cast of HA! The Musical in its New York debut this August.

HA! The Musical, a new tuner about the behind-the-scenes world of standup comedy, will premiere at New York City's Stage 72 with five performances running from August 2-7.

Directed by Broadway's Darren Katz (resident director of The Lion King), the production features a roster of accomplished comedians from stage and screen including Christian Finnegan (Chappelle's Show), Kevin Farley (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Jay Oakerson (IFC's Z Rock), Bill Dawes (Bronx Bombers), Casey Balsham (Gotham Live), and Shawn Pearlman (Comedy Bang Bang). The musical includes a book by Emmy Award-winning producer and writer Michelle Wendt and original music by Julian Velard.

The show is described as follows: "Combining endearing and entertaining group and solo numbers alongside laugh-out-loud sets of standup, in the end, HA! The Musical takes the audience down the rabbit hole into the depths of the comedy universe and attempts to answer that age-old question: What is funny?"
