Eichner, the creator and star of the critically acclaimed live talk show Creation Nation, steps up as "a gay male comic that's as raw and real as Richard Pryor or Chris Rock," according to production notes. "Eichner will unleash his comic fury on closeted stars, hypocritical black Presidents, and the state of Facebook in a post-racial America." The evening of comedy and music is directed by Benjamin Salka (I Sing!) and has musical direction by Sonny Paladino and production design by Richard DiBella.
Eichner is the star, writer and co-creator of Creation Nation: A Live Talk Show, a variety show with comedy sketches, stand-up, original musical numbers, filmed segments and live interviews with celebrity guests.
Eichner was the star and writer of Bravo-TV's first scripted webseries, "My Life on the Z List: Jen's Vlog," and last year he was seen starring in comedy segments on Bravo's "A-List Awards" with Kathy Griffin, and co-hosting Bravo's "A-List Awards Red Carpet Show" with Tim Gunn. He is currently writing for the upcoming third season of Logo TV's "Big Gay Sketch Show" and was nominated in the "Brink of Fame: Comic" category for Logo's 2008 NewNowNext Awards.
The show makes its debut at Joe's Pub, 425 Lafayette Street in The Public Theater complex, playing four performances. All shows are at 7:30 PM.
