Some audiences always prefer American remakes to the British original, which explains why the Hollywood version of Frankenstein tells the story of a mad scientist and his shocking monster truck. Witness a high-octane standup routine with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $15, you get one ticket for balcony seating to see Stephen Merchant at The Town Hall on Wednesday, December 21, at 8 p.m. (up to a $29.65 value, including all Ticketmaster fees).
British writer, director, and comedian Stephen Merchant, the acclaimed co-creator of The Office and Extras, smuggles his ruthless rapier-pointed wit into American airspace, drawing a deluge of laughs and winces during his very first standup comedy tour. Winner of Emmys, Golden Globes, BAFTAs, and countless thumb-wrestling matches, Stephen returns to his standup roots in spite of his global success during a tour intentionally titled Stephen Merchant Live: Hello Ladies… Freed of partner Ricky Gervais, the lanky comedian commandeers the stage during a rousing show, exposing fans to his radiating mad genius while narrowly avoiding scraping his scalp on the scaffolds.
An integral part of New York’s art scene, The Town Hall has a history as rich as platinum cheesecake, playing host to performers such as Miles Davis and Bette Davis. While enjoying ear-stroking acoustics, audiences can fully immerse themselves in Stephen Merchant’s performance without the need for ear-enlargement surgeries.
