Gil Faizon and George St. Geegland are headed to Broadway.
“Oh, Hello!” Indeed.
The elderly Upper West Side theater-loving characters created by Nick Kroll and John Mulaney have been performing as Gil and George for years, first in improv shows, then on Comedy Central’s Kroll Show, then Off-Broadway, and recently on tour. This September, they’ll return triumphantly to Broadway, announcing the move Sunday night on Facebook Live.
From the description for Oh, Hello On Broadway:
“Directed by subversive visionary Alex Timbers (Peter and the Starcatcher, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson), OH, HELLO ON BROADWAY is Gil and George’s pull-no-punches “memoir for the stage”—a laugh-a-minute two-man tour-de-force that’s part scripted, part spontaneous comedy, and totally unprecedented.”
