Oh, Hello with Nick Kroll and John Mulaney

** FRESH OFF THEIR SOLD OUT 21 DAY RUN IN NYC **


February 1: 7:30 p.m.
February 2: 7:30 p.m.
February 5: 10 p.m.

"Fresh off the success of their hit prank show “Too Much Tuna” and the critically acclaimed, sold out run of “OH, HELLO” on (off) Broadway, Gil Faizon and George St. Geegland will leave NYC for the first time in over 40 years to bring “OH, HELLO” to The Wilbur in Boston.

GIL FAIZON (star) is a Tony Award viewing actor and a SAG AFTRA must leave. Faizon currently works as a stand in model for mashed potatoes and other creamed foods. So like when they’re photographing mashed potatoes Gil lies there so they can get the lighting right. His Bar Mitzvah theme was the color brown.

GEORGE ST. GEEGLAND (star) was born in Newark, NJ to verbally abusive parents sometime in the early mid 1940s. In 1971 he published his first novel Rifkin’s Dilemma, a real 70’s novel about masturbation and such. It has aged terribly. St Geegland taught creative writing for 12 years at SUNY Yonkers – Go Zebras! – until he was fired for stuff that is in sealed documents. Along with Gil Faizon he is the co-author and co-star of several plays as well as the hit television show “Too Much Tuna” as seen on Comedy Central’s “Kroll Show.” Spalding Gray personally disliked him and he has chapped hands.

NICK KROLL and JOHN MULANEY are American writers and comedians with many credits. They are thrilled to be working with theater legends Gil Faizon and George St. Geegland. This is their first Off Broadway production."

Rainn Wilson at the Wilbur

Posted by Susie Callahan on Sun, Nov 08, 2015

Rainn WilsonHead to the Wilbur Theatre Wednesday, November 11!

"For nine seasons Rainn Wilson played Dwight Schrute, everyone’s favorite work nemesis and beet farmer. Viewers of The Office fell in love with the character and grew to love the actor who played him even more. Rainn founded a website and media company, SoulPancake, that eventually became a bestselling book of the same name. Now, he’s ready to tell his own story and explain how he came up with his incredibly unique sense of humor and perspective on life. He explains how he grew up “bone-numbingly nerdy before there was even a modicum of cool attached to the word.” The Bassoon King chronicles his journey from nerd to drama geek (“the highest rung on the vast, pimply ladder of high school losers”), his years of mild debauchery and struggles as a young actor in New York, his many adventures and insights about The Office, and finally, Wilson’s achievement of success and satisfaction, both in his career and spiritually, reconnecting with the artistic and creative values of the Bahá’í faith he grew up in.

RAINN WILSON is best known for his Emmy-nominated role as Dwight Schrute on NBC’s The Office, though today he’s equally well-known for his millions of Twitter followers and the philosophy website he founded, SoulPancake, which launched a New York Times bestselling book of the same name."
