About this show

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 There is a 2 drink minimum
