The star of Comedy Central’s “Kroll Show” and NBC’s short-lived “Mulaney” have spent more than a decade honing the two characters — outrageously opinionated native New Yorkers in their 70s — first on alternative comedy stages and then in a Comedy Central special and various late-night appearances.
“Oh, Hello,” Gil and George’s part-scripted, part-spontaneous “memoir for the stage,” ran Off Broadway last fall and has also had engagements in San Diego, Boston, Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Chicago and Los Angeles.
St. Geegland and Faizon have spent their entire lives second-acting Broadway shows and could not be more thrilled to make their Broadway bows.
When reached for comment, George said, “This is the furthest dun’town we have been in years and we are not happy about it.” Gil added, “I’m terrified. I have to go to the bathroom.”
The script is by Kroll and Mulaney.
Kroll is the creator and star of “Kroll Show,” and also starred in the FX series “The League.” His upcoming credits include roles in Jeff Nichols‘ Cannes hit “Loving,” the Will Ferrell comedy “The House” and animated movies such as “Sausage Party,” “Sing” and “Captain Underpants.”
Mulaney is an Emmy-winning writer and performer who spent years as a writer on “Saturday Night Live,” where he co-created the night life specialist Stefon. He currently writes for IFC’s “Documentary Now” and for Netflix’s “Big Mouth” and his third comedy special, “The Comeback Kid,” recently premiered on Netflix.
The Broadway run of “Oh, Hello” is produced by Patrick Catullo and Marcia Goldberg with Barbara Whitman, Marc Platt, Pierce Cravens, James G. Kernochan, Jeff Romley, Triptyk Studios, Benjamin Simpson and Joseph Longthorne/Shira Friedman; the General Manager is 321 Management.
