The Tybee Post Theater launches its Tybee Comedy Revue in two weeks! You won’t want to miss this fantastic night of stand-up comedy starring nationally known comedian and pianist extraordinaire Jerry Farber and Atlanta comedy superstar Kristi Leigh Snyder.
Snyder will open for Jerry, bringing the audience comedy that’s authentic and vulnerable delivered with random bursts of theatricality. She has worked as a professional stage actress in film and commercials and often features for headliners such as Jerry, who lives in Atlanta and is one of the city’s most recognized and acclaimed performers.
Jerry has entertained audiences in comedy clubs around the country for over two decades with a style of hip piano finesse and warm-blooded humor. Best of all, he personalizes each performance, weaving his audience into each routine. He performs at a near exhausting pace that leaves a crowd roaring at his Georgia Redneck Routine and mesmerized by his music.
He is a local TV and radio personality in his own right, and even ran for mayor of Atlanta twice in the tradition of Pat Paulsen, finishing third twice behind none other than Andy Young and Maynard Jackson. As Farber is fond of pointing out, “A guy like me could never run for office in a country like China or Syria, or Chile – or Mississippi.”
This is only the second ticketed event on the historic Tybee Post Theater’s stage which means it’s likely to sell out. Tickets are $15 for the general public and $13.50 for members. The doors open at 7:30 and the show begins at 8 p.m. The concession stand will be open, selling wine, beer, soft drinks and popcorn. Tickets can be ordered online (click here) or purchased at the box office.
