NYT Critics Pick SealSTUPENDOUSLY ENTERTAINING!
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.
– Ben Brantley, The New York Times
★★★★ A NEW YORK MUST!
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!
– Adam Feldman, Time Out New York
OH, HELLO DARES TO BE HILARIOUS!
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!
– Johnny Oleksinski, New York Post
★★★★ MESSY, PUERILE, CRASS & UPROARIOUSLY, STOMACH-ACHINGLY FUNNY! THE AUDIENCE HOWLS!
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.
– Alexis Soloski, The Guardian
SO HILARIOUSLY SILLY AND FUN,
you’ll forget how awful your life is.
– Amy Schumer
BROADWAY’S PITCH-PERFECT, HILARIOUS NEW LAUGHFEST!
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.
– Dave Quinn, NBC4
VERY FUNNY!
After seeing Oh, Hello, I NEVER WANTED TO SAY GOODBYE!
– Mel Brooks
TERRIFIC, HYSTERICAL FUN!
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.
– Peter Marks, The Washington Post
STRAP YOURSELF INTO THE ROLLERCOASTER AND RIDE ALONG FOR 95 MINUTES OF HILARIOUS INSANITY OR INSANE HILARITY, TAKE YOUR PICK.
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.
– Steven Suskin, The Huffington Post
OH, HELLO is a welcome arrival.
Going for the funny bone, it’s aswirl with jokes and jabs at actors, stage hokum and overripe clichés. I was in stitches.
– Joe Dziemianowicz, Daily News
A BRILLIANT, SURREAL, ZINGER-FILLED BROADWAY HIT! A ZANY RIOT. – Tim Teeman, The Daily Beast
★★★★ GROTESQUE AND GLEEFULLY MISANTHROPIC!
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.
– Max McGuinness, Financial Times
THE FUNNIEST SHOW IN TOWN! A THEATRICAL MAGNUM OPUS!
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!
– Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter
POLITICALLY INCORRECT, GLEEFULLY SILLY FUN!
A MUST-SEE FOR CRANKY NEW YORKERS!
– Matt Windham, amNY
THE FUNNIEST COMIC DUO OF THEIR GENERATION! YOU’LL LAUGH FOR DAYS AFTERWARDS JUST THINKING ABOUT THEM."
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.
– Jordan Riefe, The Hollywood Reporter
Hamilton has a rival for THE HOTTEST TICKET OF THE SEASON!
Very powerful and moving and hilarious. DON’T MISS IT, YOU DUMMY!
– Jesse David Fox, New York Magazine
A HIP, HILAROUS, 90-MINUTE MACHINE GUN FIRE PLAY.
The show is a limited run, so run right over there!
– Roger Friedman, Showbiz 411
HILARIOUS! THE AUDIENCE GETS BLIND DRUNK ON THEIR OWN LAUGHTER!
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!
– Ben Brantley, The New York Times
THE FUNNIEST SHOW OF THE YEAR!
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.
– Elisabeth Vincentelli, New York Post
A NONSTOP LAUGH FEST! A TRUE MADCAP WONDER!
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 ever seen.
– Zach Freeman, Chicago Tribune
BRILLIANT! THE DUO’S COMEDIC GIFTS ARE INDISPUTABLE!
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!
– Matt Pair, The Chicago RedEye
VERY, VERY FUNNY! I TYPE THIS REVIEW STILL SORE FROM LAUGHING!
The near-constant laughs lasted through the collective audience dance at the end. Everyone left the theater quoting favorite one-liners.
– Beth Spotswood, The San Francisco Chronicle (SFGate)
A JOKE-A-SECOND LAUGH ENDURANCE TEST!
With the frenetically funny pace, there’s not a dry eye in the house from all the laughter-induced tears.
– Jordan Burchette, The Wrap
A marvelous master class in improvisational comedy, with acerbic wit and near constant laughter. – Pat Levy, Consequence of Sound
