Been there. Done that.  By the time you reach a certain distinguished age like me, you’ve celebrated your birthday in every possible way.

Scaling the Himalayas. Check. Parasailing in Hawaii. Naturally.  Shooting under 80 at Augusta National. Left handed! Line dancing in Utah. Yep, done that too.

This year, I rang in my birthday in the best possible way. On Saturday, December 10th, I took to the stage at the SoHo Playhouse in my beloved hometown, New York City, for the 173rd performance of Ted Greenberg’s The Complete PerformerThe Mascot and I loved every moment entertaining the capacity crowd, which included Kenny Kramer (known for being the inspiration for the Kramer character on Seinfeld).  We were met with lots of laughter and cheers.  But, I swear I wore the largest smile of anyone in the theater.
I love performing this show every Saturday night at 10:00 pm and driving one lucky audience group home in a yellow New York City cab.  It beats celebrating with Grace Jones, Charo and Mickey Rooney in Hong Kong.  I can promise you that.

Thank you to “Joe Namath,” “Paper Clip,” “Jenny” and many others for making this birthday so memorable.  And to Ben, Derek and Jennifer for a being such great passengers in the cab ride home.  It was the perfect way to cap off another great year.
Perhaps, you will celebrate your next birthday with me at the show?
