TONIGHT! Thursday, December 22 I Bing Faithful’s Very Merry Nondenominational Holiday Special  Veteran improviser Bob Kulhan (Second City, The Scene, founding member Baby Wants Candy) is Bing Faithful, a holiday crooner with a dark twist. The show also features many great, surprise guests from SNL, SC, BWC & The PIT! Moment’s before he is to take the stage with his band, The Bing Faithful 5, holiday crooner Bing Faithful learns all members of his band have died in a horrific bus accident on the way to the The PIT. Yet, Bing is a consummate professional and knows “the show must go on!” at all costs. What follows is one character’s journey through grief and agony as, alone on stage, he attempts to compensate for the bands absence by singing all 5 parts and harmonies to all the classic holiday songs, requested by the audience… and occasionally with the audience’s help!

New York: How Can I Help You?

I’ve worked for Brown Paper Tickets for about 2 years now, It’s a great place to work and I’m glad to be a part of this team. We ticket so many different types of events, sometimes it’s hard to keep track of all the diversity!

Personally, I’ve helped hundreds of event producers. I’ve provided producers with different perspectives on their businesses; ideas to increase their sales; or sometimes, I’ve just trained them on the tools available to them to increase their success. I’ve helped set up advanced seating options, checked IDs at doors, solved last minute issues and even donated my time to help non-profits list and promote their events. These unique experiences have provided me with a certain, uncommon, skill set which allow me to offer exclusive insights into event production. If I’m not familiar with the type of event you do, I know people who are!  I must say that my co-workers are amazing and inspire me daily with their experience and knowledge. They’re a great resource. Read the rest of this entry »

TONIGHT! Friday, December 9 CARAVAN OF THIEVES; guest Christian Evans  Stretching the parameters of acoustic swing, Caravan Of Thieves has been winning immediate praise for their new and unique brand of gypsy flavored song writing and their high intensity show. The vocal harmonizing, acoustic guitar-spanking husband and wife duo, Fuzz & Carrie, have extended their family to include fiery violinist Ben Dean and double bass madman, Brian Anderson, to complete their colorful vision. Seeking inspiration from beyond the great divide, the quartet produces layers of Beatlesque vocals, driving rhythms, satirical, dramatic song writing and an overall circus of sound.
