Spend the Night with Billy Crystal
Special Guest: Bonnie Hunt
Doors: 7PM | Show: 8PM
Spend the Night with Billy Crystal has been described as “a smorgasbord of zesty stories and sharp impressions,” and a “trip down memory lane” led by Tony® and Emmy Award®-winning comedian Billy Crystal, who has been lauded as “brilliant, “eternally ageless,” “mesmerizing” and “dazzling.” Following its initial announcement last year, the tour, presented by Larry Magid Entertainment Group, has been met with an onslaught of fan demand and critical applause, prompting new dates to be added through the end of April. Actress Bonnie Hunt, who appears alongside Crystal as moderator and interviewer, will continue as his counterpart for all announced dates as well.
“This show is unique. There’s stand up, and ‘sit down’ which gives me great freedom to tell stories, show film clips and talk about my life and career and the world as I see it,” says Crystal of the new show. “It’s loose, unpredictable and intimate. The most fun I’ve had on stage in a long time.” Audiences and critics alike are praising the unique format as well, with the Orlando Sentinel noting, “The crowd happily ate up whatever Crystal was serving because it was prime fare,” and Sarasota Magazine praising Hunt’s presence, writing she “makes a good partner throughout the evening, getting in a few good comedy lines herself as well as asking Crystal the questions that spark his best stories.”

I have never laughed so hard in my entire life. If the saying that laughter is the best medicine is true, then I should be set for a while…

Fits of laughter rang out regularly in the packed theater without a spare seat in the house. Between the laughter, however, the adulating crowd sat spellbound as Crystal led them on a pleasant biographical journey…
Crystal is on point, humorous, slick, and still timely… Ideas, impressions come to him and he runs with it… In this, he is brilliant and eternally ageless.
