This Saturday night! Tybee Comedy Revue at the Post Theater
Nationally known comedian Jerry Farber headlines new Tybee Comedy Revue!
The Tybee Post Theater launches its Tybee Comedy Revue this weekend. 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.
Our Post Theater concession stand offers beer, wine, soft drinks and fresh popped popcorn! It’s going to be a fun night!
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.
Special thanks to our lodging partner, Hotel Tybee, which is providing accommodations for Jerry and Kristi Saturday night!
