So reads the teaser for the upcoming series of concerts from two of the theatre's funniest gals, Hairspray's Jackie Hoffman and Forbidden Broadway's Kristine Zbornik. Hoffman, who has been enjoying a lengthy run of Monday nights at Joe's Pub in The Kvetching Continues, will join forces with Zbornik for an all-new holiday show entitled Together Again for the First Time. The duo will kick off their concert series Nov. 22 at Joe's Pub and will also offer performances Nov. 29, Dec. 6, 13, 20 and 27. Show time is 7:30 PM. The show, according to production notes, promises "an unprecedented evening of side-splitting, ear-shattering shtick." Directed by Michael Schiralli, Together Again features musical direction by Dave Brunetti.

Jackie Hoffman received a Theatre World Award for her work in Hairspray. Her other theatrical credits include Book of Liz (Obie Award), Straightjacket, Incident at Cobbler's Knob and One Woman Shoe (Jeff Award). Hoffman has been seen on screen in "Legally Blonde II," "Kissing Jessica Stein," "Large's Ark," "Mo' Money" and "Freaky Friday."

Kristine Zbornik has been seen in productions of Forbidden Broadway, Man of La Mancha, Caged, Splendora, Varla Jean Merman Is the Bad Seedling and Holiday Hams. She took part in the workshop of Bat Boy, and her one-person shows include Ball of Confusion, Serving Mankind and Zbornik in a Trunk.
