Murray Hill: Let’s call it a comeback!
Thursday and Friday, 29 and 30 September, 9pm
Let’s call it a return is an ecstatic and sincere comedy show about a man who loves to perform and performs live. After working in show business for 300 years, Murray Hill is back at Joe’s Pub to celebrate with his old school comedy, improvisation, light singing and original music from his band The Rimshots! Hill’s apartment burned down this year and he lost everything. Well, everything but his love of the show! So he’s coming back as a phoenix rising from the ashes, or a middle-aged man rising with the help of Viagra.
Car glare: treasure
Friday 21 October, 7pm
Produced with the musical director Long live De Concini, Machine Dazzle’s treasure is a future psyche-sex-adelic synthe rock experience with stories about Machine’s mother, their relationship and the legacy she left him.

Dugal said, “Whether you come from these cultures or not, you can hear the story in the music, it’s a visceral experience. When it’s hard to find a starting point in a constantly changing world, it’s grounding and humbling to experience a sound that’s hundreds of years old. It reminds me that human beings have given birth to beauty and wonder from the very beginning. Your body cannot deny the connection it feels with these sounds!
