Following their Off-Broadway run in Coup de Theatre, Kiki & Herb took to the stage of Carnegie Hall for a special one-night "farewell performance." That Sept. 19, 2004, performance was recorded and released on the Evolver label. They have since played a national tour, Broadway and Joe's Pub, among other venues. Justin Bond and Kenny Mellman created Kiki & Herb in 1992 and have been embodying their respective alter-egos ever since in various shows. The infamous twosome make their way through a number of songs, occasionally taking the off ramp into the brash and boozy bio of the "septuagenarian" (as her press release states) Kiki. As she "drags" us through those unforgettable moments, her shy straight-man accompanist Herb tickles the ivories. Previous works include Jesus Wept and There's a Stranger in the Manger!
