|FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
As my show, Ted Greenberg’s The Complete Performer, heads into its fifth season Off-Broadway next month, I thought it was about time I put together a Frequently Asked Questions section — FAQ. This is for everyone who has never attended my show (you have no reason not to now!) and for those who have only seen it once. I hope I’ve answered all of your questions. If not, drop me a line in the comments box below.
IS THERE A DRINK MINIMUM?
Not a chance. Drink minimums represent everything I despise: bloat, opportunism, corporate greed, gangland strong-arming, environmental predation. Don’t get me started!
There is a bar if you want a drink.
Whether you drink or not, you will leave my show intoxicated with joy and fellow feeling for humanity.
WHAT’S THE SHOW ABOUT?
To quote one reviewer “It’s about one comedic surprise after another that I will not spoil here.” I can say this: you will walk out having seen the ultimate New York City comedy experience. No drink minimum.
IS THERE AUDIENCE PARTICIPATION?
Only for those who want to participate (read: scene-stealing-attention-mongering-closet divas). Audience participation is entirely voluntary. From start to finish everyone, participants and nonparticipants alike, feel honored, valued and not subjected to a drink minimum.
I think of my audience as friends who join me for a great Saturday night party and then leave without rummaging through my medicine cabinet or vomiting on my couch.
WHAT’S THE LARGEST SIZE GROUP OF FRIENDS I CAN BRING?
Up to 50 and no drink minimum! Contact the show’s producer /a> to celebrate an event – bachelorette party, birthday or girls night out.
IS THERE NUDITY?
No. The entire cast, crew and maintenance staff observe a strict no-nudity code. Was there an episode years back? Maybe. But the show is PG-13 and that’s the way we like it.
IS THERE REALLY A CAB RIDE HOME?
Yes. And you may win it!
AM I A CAB DRIVER?
Only immediately following my show and to drive the show’s lucky winners. I am a comedian who has appeared regularly at New York City comedy clubs (even though they may have drink minimums) and an Emmy award comedy writer formerly with the David Letterman show. My hack license is for the purpose of this show alone!
CAN YOU BRING YOUR KIDS?
If they are 16 or older, bring them. Doing so will abate their adolescent rebellion. Oh sure they’ll still ignore you and mimic you behind your back but the random episodes of car jacking and identity theft will immediately decline.
WOULD MY 65-YEAR OLD MOTHER LIKE MY SHOW?
Woman of all ages love my show. And I love women of all ages. And there’s no drink minimum.
ARE YOU CLOSE TO ANY RESTAURANTS?
Some of Manhattan’s best! See the venue page.
