STUPENDOUSLY ENTERTAINING! – Ben Brantley, The New York Times
Give it up for Nick Kroll and John Mulaney! They are an army of only two, yet they seem destined to conquer and slay anyone who ventures into the Lyceum Theater. And, oh, the pleasure of their company. As long they are there, it’s the best little spot in town.
★★★★ A NEW YORK MUST! – Adam Feldman, Time Out New York
Directed by goofy-smart prince Alex Timbers, OH, HELLO is about watching two superb improvisers do high-level tag-team comedy in the great tradition of Mike Nichols and Elaine May and Mel Brooks and Carl Reiner. They keep the audience in giddy laughter!
OH, HELLO DARES TO BE HILARIOUS! – Johnny Oleksinski, New York Post
It’s the perfect oasis from the final stretch of an exhausting election season. OUR LONG NATIONAL DOWNER IS OVER! Directed with chutzpah by Alex Timbers, the show is completely un-PC, infectiously energetic and packed with winning zingers. There’s no sentiment, no tears, no after-school-special lessons — only antics and belly laughs. And thank god for that!
★★★★ MESSY, PUERILE, CRASS & UPROARIOUSLY, STOMACH-ACHINGLY FUNNY! THE AUDIENCE HOWLS! – Alexis Soloski, The Guardian
With infectious pleasure, Nick Kroll and John Mulaney enjoy themselves to an outrageous, overwhelming, ecstatic degree. Unless you’ve landed a ticket to Hamilton, the Lyceum theatre is the place to be.
SO HILARIOUSLY SILLY AND FUN, – Amy Schumer
you’ll forget how awful your life is.
BROADWAY’S PITCH-PERFECT, HILARIOUS NEW LAUGHFEST! – Dave Quinn, NBC4
YOU'LL BE GLAD YOU SAID ‘OH, HELLO’ TO THESE TWO!
Kroll and Mulaney are masterful as Faizon and St. Geegland—two incredibly nuanced and well-rounded characters who manage to be wildly offensive and incredibly loveable at the same time. Both are equally excellent. The laughs rarely slow down. Built for an audience of ‘comedy nerd and theater dorks,’ it will resonate strongly with New Yorkers and Steely Dan fans alike. Alt-comedy fans will surely love it. But rarely do theatergoers get to see such a refreshing, relatable character study.
VERY FUNNY! – Mel Brooks
After seeing Oh, Hello, I NEVER WANTED TO SAY GOODBYE!
TERRIFIC, HYSTERICAL FUN! – Peter Marks, The Washington Post
Blessed with a gift for antic, topical wit, a palpable love of the stage and a bizarre fixation on tuna fish sandwiches, comedians John Mulaney and Nick Kroll hold a theater crowd in their loony spell for a giddy, galloping 90 minutes. Their brand of comedy is a winning melange of all the brows: low, middle and high.
STRAP YOURSELF INTO THE ROLLERCOASTER AND RIDE ALONG FOR 95 MINUTES OF HILARIOUS INSANITY OR INSANE HILARITY, TAKE YOUR PICK. – Steven Suskin, The Huffington Post
OH, HELLO starts out funny and moves past hysterical to sublime, and never lets up. Laughter ricochets through Broadway’s most historic playhouse, with Kroll & Mulaney skillfully stroking the hapless audience by stoking the comic fires with globs of chicken fat (AKA schmaltz). These actors are keen and their characterizations inspired. As for the scenery—designed by Scott Pask—it is full of jokes, including some real belly laughs.
OH, HELLO is a welcome arrival. – Joe Dziemianowicz, Daily News
Going for the funny bone, it’s aswirl with jokes and jabs at actors, stage hokum and overripe clichés. I was in stitches.
A BRILLIANT, SURREAL, ZINGER-FILLED BROADWAY HIT! A ZANY RIOT. – Tim Teeman, The Daily Beast
★★★★ GROTESQUE AND GLEEFULLY MISANTHROPIC! – Max McGuinness, Financial Times
Their blend of local color, highbrow repartee and toilet humor makes for an improbably enjoyable evening. Oh, Hello may just consist of two evil old men gassing on stage for 90 minutes, but YOU’LL LOVE THEM BY THE END.
THE FUNNIEST SHOW IN TOWN! A THEATRICAL MAGNUM OPUS! – Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter
The jokes come fast and furious, delivering more laughs per minute than any show on Broadway. It features one hilarious one-liner after another. Audiences roll with laughter!
POLITICALLY INCORRECT, GLEEFULLY SILLY FUN! – Matt Windham, amNY
A MUST-SEE FOR CRANKY NEW YORKERS!
THE FUNNIEST COMIC DUO OF THEIR GENERATION! YOU’LL LAUGH FOR DAYS AFTERWARDS JUST
THINKING ABOUT THEM."
– Jordan Riefe, The Hollywood Reporter
Yucking it up in ludicrous New York accents, their laughter spreads to the audience and the jokes keep rolling
with a hit-to-miss ratio of close to 100 percent. It’s hard to imagine it getting any funnier. In fact, bring a
handkerchief to wipe away tears. If laughter is the best medicine, these guys are peddling an overdose.
Hamilton has a rival for THE HOTTEST TICKET OF THE SEASON! – Jesse David Fox, New York
Very powerful and moving and hilarious. DON’T MISS IT, YOU DUMMY!
A HIP, HILAROUS, 90-MINUTE MACHINE GUN FIRE PLAY. – Roger Friedman, Showbiz 411
The show is a limited run, so run right over there!
HILARIOUS! THE AUDIENCE GETS BLIND DRUNK ON THEIR OWN LAUGHTER! – Ben Brantley, The New York Times
OH HELLO is a hoot! The joy in watching them comes from what at first registers as a single joke keeps growing
bigger and bigger and bigger, until its warped, silly worldview takes over your mind, too. It turns out these
guys are best savored in large doses. It’s really, really funny!
THE FUNNIEST SHOW OF THE YEAR! – Elisabeth Vincentelli, New York Post
And that’s selling it short. I laughed so hard that tears were streaming down my cheeks and my glasses kept
fogging up. It’s nonstop, fantastic lunacy.
A NONSTOP LAUGH FEST! A TRUE MADCAP WONDER! – Zach Freeman, Chicago Tribune
The laughs keep rolling in this impressively well-constructed piece of meta-theater. You will not find two
comedians having a better time than Gil Faizon and George St. Geegland: two frumpy, dumpy, grumpy old men
gracing the stage in this outlandish and seriously hilarious show. How to describe this demented duo to the
uninitiated? They’re so strikingly eye-catching and hard to turn away from, it’s easy to get swept up in their
bizarre beliefs and mannerisms. They present the absolute best piece of improvised audience interaction I have
BRILLIANT! THE DUO’S COMEDIC GIFTS ARE INDISPUTABLE! – Matt Pair, The
There’s A SPECIAL KIND OF LAUGHING that happens when something is so CONSISTENTLY FUNNY AND UNPREDICTABLE that
you feel like you don’t know when laughs will emerge from you or what they’ll sound like, only that it’s
guaranteed to happen every 10 seconds or so. THAT’S THE JOY OF OH, HELLO!
VERY, VERY FUNNY! I TYPE THIS REVIEW STILL SORE FROM LAUGHING! – Beth Spotswood, The San Francisco Chronicle (SFGate)
The near-constant laughs lasted through the collective audience dance at the end. Everyone left the theater
quoting favorite one-liners.
A JOKE-A-SECOND LAUGH ENDURANCE TEST!
– Jordan Burchette, The Wrap
With the frenetically funny pace, there’s not a dry eye in the house from all the laughter-induced tears.
A marvelous master class in improvisational comedy, with acerbic wit and near
constant laughter. – Pat Levy, Consequence of Sound
