On Friday night I had the pleasure of seeing the comedy team of Jeffery Self and Cole Escola live at Joe's Pub in New York City. After working with these two for the last few months on their LOGO comedy series Jeffery and Cole Casserole, I've come to expect the unexpected. But still NOTHING can prepare you for the experience of seeing these two live.
It seems as though Jeffery and Cole approach everything they do with a sense of reckless abandon, and a throw it at the wall and see if it sticks attitude. But while it might appear that they are making it up as they go along, their routines are actually rather well thought out and constructed for high comic impact. Joining them on stage this night were writer/actor Michael Creighton, singer/performer Erin Markey, and singer/force of nature Bridgett Everett who's rendition of What's Up was uhm.....let's just say you had to be there. REALLY! I couldn't explain it if I tried. (though I will say it involved a strategically placed bottle of vodka, a pink razor, a pair of leopard print panties, and a revelation that a very surprised young man in the crowd won't be forgetting any time soon!)
If you ever get the chance to see the Jeffery and Cole posse live, don't think about it, just do it. You won't be disappointed.
