Book: The Improv: An Oral History of the Comedy Club that Revolutionized Stand-Up

2017-09-13_3-21-35

It’s no joke to say that our world would be a lot less funny without Budd Friedman!

In 1963, thirty-year-old Friedman—who had recently quit his job as a Boston advertising executive and returned to his hometown of New York to become a theatrical producer—opened a coffee house for Broadway performers called the Improvisation. His goal? Simply to make a living, and if all went according to plan, to also make enough professional contacts to be able to mount his first Broadway show within a year’s time. Read More

It wasn’t such a great week on Broadway for “Hello, Dolly!” Bette Midler took the week off and grosses fell by 11 percent. The week’s take fell to $913K from $2.3 million the week before. Capacity was down 11 percent.

All this points to why the whole main cast is leaving when Midler goes on January 14th. The show is being re-budgeted to real world box office when Bernadette Peters and Victor Garber take over. It also shows that this has really been Bette Midler on Broadway and not just a Broadway musical. Read More

Seven members of singer Bette Midler‘s touring company made it to her concert tour Sunday night after being released on bail following their arrests on charges of possessing cocaine and marijuana.

Police arrested the men, members of the singer’s band and technical crew, at their motel after officers observed the group through a window.

One of the arresting officers said the men closed the drapes on the motel room after spotting them.
