(Hollywood, California--March 13, 2014) Comedians absorb experiences and lessons, turning it all into material. Some comics hit the stage unfiltered, stepping out of their lives and into the spotlight. Others, like Hersh Rephun, convey their truths through the prism of characterization. Hersh can put up with "himself" (a responsible dad/husband) about a third of the time.
The other two thirds of his life are spent onstage or preparing to be onstage. At those times, he's whole, living out the good and bad through numerous characters. He can be a Gay Cubano named Pedrito, or Scarface imitating Christopher Walken in jail. These impressions (some of which can be seen in
from the documentary "Hersh Rephun: 20 Years to Kill") reflect a personal journey and provide a context for his story, down to every last embarrassing moment. After all, as Hersh explains, "What good is shame if we're too ashamed to share it?"
Tiffany King has a strong sense of self. She can charm and disarm audiences with a look, a word - or an unexpected burst of song. And she is ideally suited to the task of corralling one of standup comedy's most unruly talents as she emcees "A woman with three nuts," a running musical standup comedy show at the iconic Pig 'n Whistle.
Showcasing at least three "identities in crisis," Hersh transports the audience to Europe, Latin America and the US, traversing the choppy seas of religion, relationships, self-indulgence and mommy issues in the span of one hour.
Tiffany and Hersh – who have performed (together and apart) at such venues as The Ice House, The Comedy Store, Flappers, Hot Latina Comedy and StandUp NY – will entertain you til the last wheel comes off…and it does.
