New at the Post Theater: Tybee Comedy Revue debuts Oct. 17!
Nationally known comedian Jerry Farber headlines new Tybee Comedy Revue!
The Tybee Post Theater launches its Tybee Comedy Revue in two weeks! You won’t want to miss this fantastic night of stand-up comedy starring nationally known comedian and pianist extraordinaire, Jerry Farber. Jerry lives in Atlanta and is one of the city’s most recognized and acclaimed performers, entertaining there and in comedy clubs around the country for over two decades. His style is inspired by both jazz and comedy greats, from Dave Brubeck and Errol Garner to Woody Allen and Mark Russell.
His unique style of hip piano finesse and warm blooded humor endears him to fans. Best of all, he personalizes each performance, weaving his audience into each routine. He performs at a near exhausting pace that leaves a crowd roaring at his Georgia Redneck Routine and mesmerized by his music.
Jerry is a local TV and radio personality in his own right, and even ran for mayor of Atlanta twice in the tradition of Pat Paulsen, finishing third twice behind none other than Andy Young and Maynard Jackson. As Farber is fond of pointing out, “A guy like me could never run for office in a country like China or Syria, or Chile…or Mississippi.”
Another Atlanta comedy superstar, Kristi Leigh Snyder, opens for Jerry as we bring a non-stop barrage of stand-up comedy to the Post Theater stage for the first time … ever! Kristi’s comedy is authentic and vulnerable delivered with random bursts of theatricality. In television terms, she’s a Carrie Bradshaw-Liz Lemon blend, with a Monica Gellar undertone; a Julia Sugarbaker bouquet on the nose, with a nice Blanche Devereaux finish.
Kristi has worked as a professional stage actress in film and commercials and often features for headliners such as Jerry. She has an original one-woman show called Banter & Ballads that has been acclaimed critically all over the Southeast.
The Tybee Comedy Revue, which will become a regular feature in the Tybee Post Theater’s year-round lineup of entertainment, is produced by Tom Paris of the Savannah Comedy Revue, based at the Bay Street Theatre.

The first installment of a monthly music series, Tybee City Limits, the Best in Live Local Music, will feature three acts– a singer/songwriter and two of the Coastal Empire’s hottest bands.
This month, we’ll have the talented songstress Sarah Poole opening the show; Savannah country band Lyn Avenue fronted by the dynamic Cc Witt up next; and, finally, who else but the enormously popular Train Wrecks, who offer up raucous and rollicking Americana and were just voted Savannah’s best country/Americana band by Connect Savannah.

The Last of the Red Hot Lovers, Nov. 6-7. 7:30 pm
The Tybee Post Theater presents the Tybee Arts Association’s production of Neil Simon’s hilarious comedy set in the 1960s about pitiful Barney Cashman, a middle-aged married nebbish, who wants to join the sexual revolution before it is too late. A gentle soul with no experience in adultery, he fails miserably in each of three attempted seductions with three very different gals!
Directed by Dr. Ronnie Stilton. Starring Joshua Stafford, Kim Trammell, Raina Bass and Renee DeRossett.
Come see our inaugural theatrical production! Only two performances in the Tybee Post Theater before the show moves to the Tybee Arts Center, Nov. 17-23.
Tickets are $20 and on sale now at the Tybee Post Theater box office. This will be a sell out. Don’t wait!
