The headlines say it all: Powerful storm closing in on millions. That’s from weather.com. New York City and the Tri-State area are under a blizzard warning. Governor Cuomo warns that the subways and roads may be shut down later today. Supermarket shelves are empty. (Thank goodness CVS and Duane Reade are now carrying groceries!). Corporations are sending employees home early today. Essentially, it’s winter in New York.

Here are five things you can do to ward off the winter blues as Storm Juno approaches.
 
(5) Catch up on the Australian Open. Most of the tennis is played while we’re getting shut eye on the East Coast. Take advantage of watching yesterday’s matches today as they are repeated on the Tennis Channel. It’s a great opportunity to also salivate over summer weather as Melbourne is bathed in sunshine.
 
(4) Book that trip to the Caribbean so that for the next snowstorm you’ll be on the beach relaxing with a margarita. Or go to Costa Rica. Just some place where there’s no snow.
 
(3) Actually cook a meal in your apartment. We’re New Yorkers. Take out is plentiful. Delivery is easy. And with our busy schedules, it’s hard–other than Thanksgiving and Christmas–to find time in front of the stove. Now’s your chance. Where else are you going?
 
(2) Sleep. There’s nothing better than a nap on a cold, wintry day. Right? When do you ever get to do this?
 
(1) Catch up on all those TV shows you have DVRed or Tivoed, but haven’t had one second to watch. Broad City, here I come.

Savore

2015 is the year of anniversaries. A restaurant a few blocks from Soho Playhouse, where I perform my mostly one-man comedy show Saturdays, is celebrating 20 years in the neighborhood. I recently returned to Savore, located on the corner of Spring and Sullivan. I was reminded how good the Artichoke Pizza is (Really good), and the pasta is very fresh too.

Also, the staff is really friendly as are the other diners. If you grab a seat at the bar, you’re likely to make a new friend or two. Or if you want a private conversation, grab a table in the back. Groups and parties enjoy hanging out in the nook up at the front of the restaurant. So you really cannot go wrong.

 

Savore is a perfect spot for post-show dinner. I’ll be back again soon. New York constantly changes, yet it’s good to see some classics remain the same.

Last week, Transparent, Jill Soloway’s groundbreaking show, took home comedy gold at the Golden Globes. Transparent received two statuettes for Best Comedy and Best Actor in a Comedy TV show. Not bad for an Amazon.com show. Clearly the tide is turning with content from many outlets garnering awards.

Let Oscar Season Begin

It’s as if we need something to look forward to after all of the December holidays. And now, two weeks into the year, we have it: Oscar Season. From now until February 22, there will be lots of prognosticating. Who will win Best Picture? Can anyone overtake J.K. Simmons in the Supporting Actor category? Who will be this year’s Bjork with some crazy outfit?
 
The 85th Academy Awards® will air live on Oscar® Sunday, February 24, 2013.
 
Until then, a hearty congratulations to all of the nominees. Enjoy the fanfare between now and then–the other awards shows, the press, and the luncheons. Maybe even pick up a new movie or two.
 
The nominee I’m happiest about is Mark Ruffalo. His performance in Foxcatcher blew me away. He is on top of his game as an actor in that film. While the money odds aren’t with him to win, check out this performance. Prepare to be dazzled.
 
February 22nd can’t come soon enough.

I will get to the Golden Globes later this week. There’s still time to weigh in on the fashion, the winners, the best moments. The story that fascinates me right now is in the Daily News! You’ve got to love a 92-year-old Rockette, who is still hoofing it. Take that Betty White!
 
Eleanor Leight performed during World War II. Yes, that long ago, and now she’s teaching seniors, dancers over 55. I’m inspired, and I bet you will be if you read this fabulous article about her.

I hope to be still on stage at 92, performing comedy. Thanks for the inspiration Eleanor.

Last night, awards season officially kicked off with the People’s Choice Awards. I’m not really sure how it’s all tallied, but the event celebrates movies and TV. Anna Farris and Allison Janney of TV’s Mom were the hosts. It’s the trend these days to have two funny women as hosts. Think how Tina Fey and Amy Poehler helm the Golden Globes for a third time this Sunday. (Here’s a video preview.) I’m all for this trend.

The big comedy winners last night were The Big Bang Theory, which took home favorite TV comedy and favorite TV comedy actress (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting). Glee’s Chris Colfer snagged the favorite TV comedy actor. For comedy films, Melissa McCarthy and Adam Sandler were the winners. Saturday Night Live–celebrating its 40th season–won Best TV Sketch Comedy Show while Jane the Virgin was awarded Best New TV Comedy. The film 22 Jump Street tickled the People’s funnybones.
 
I look forward to the Golden Globes on Sunday and the slew of other awards shows on the horizons. Especially if temperatures in New York remain in the Arctic range.

Classic New York

As a lifelong New Yorker, I love the Big Apple. There are a few places with staying power in this city. The Statue of Liberty. The Empire State Building. Cafe Borgia II. That’s right, the tiny cafe located in the heart of SoHo has been around for forty years.

Opened in 1975, it was the second outpost. The original cafe on Bleecker and MacDougal was the haunt of Beat poets and famous 1960s and 1970s writers and artists. There is a beautiful New York Times article about its closing in 2001. Cafe Borgia II continues the legacy. It is a no frills spot for a quick bite and some coffee. The cafe has seen the SoHo neighborhood transform over the last four decades from Italian neighborhood to loft apartments to the hotbed it is today.
 
If you want a quick coffee and a reminder of New York from the old days, stop by Cafe Borgia II before my show. It’s only a couple blocks from SoHo Playhouse.
 
Happy New Year.

It’s 2015. Hard to believe. How time flies. Where did the years go? All of that can be said about the New Year we embark on today.
 
New Year 2015
 
I started performing Ted Greenberg’s The Complete Performer in 2008. Seven years later, the show continues its run at the Soho Playhouse. I’m proud of its longevity and the myriad fans for whom I’ve performed. It’s been a hoot hitting the stage late night every Saturday. And, now, after a six-week test run at 6:00 pm last fall, the show returns to that time slot January 3rd. That’s right, we’re starting the New Year off with a new time.
 
I hope to see you and yours at the show for the first time or for the fifth really soon. And, until then, a happy, healthy & prosperous 2015!

While Ted Greenberg’s The Complete Performer goes dark for one night – December 27th – there are other things to do around the city.

If you’re looking for comedy, Nick Griffin – maybe you’ve seen the veteran comic on one of the late night shows – will be at Gotham Comedy Club December 26th and 27th. You’ve also got eight shows to choose from at The Pit and more at UCB Theatre.
 
If music is what you’re after, check out The Fab Faux at our neighbor, City Winery. Or why not stop by one of the Village’s best clubs–Smalls. It’s open late and has a great line up on the 27th.
 
Whatever you do, have a grand time. We will miss you. But we are back January 3rd.
