A Funny Thing Happened

a funny thing happened“A funny thing happened on Tybee…”  We’ve all got plenty of stories about our adventures at the beach and Tybee tends to be the perfect backdrop for all sorts of hilarity and shenanigans.  Coming soon, we’ll have our own Tybee Comedy Revue and we bet you’ll enjoy the laughter.  The curtain is up and the lights are brightly shining at Tybee Post Theater.  It’s Show Time, y’all.

Tybee Comedy Revue debuts its fantastic night of stand-up comedy starring nationally known comedian and pianist extraordinaire, Jerry Farber. Jerry lives in Atlanta and is one of the city’s most recognized and acclaimed performers, entertaining there and in comedy clubs around the country for over two decades. His style is inspired by both jazz and comedy greats, from Dave Brubeck and Errol Garner to Woody Allen and Mark Russell.

Opening for Jerry is another Atlanta comedy superstar, Kristi Leigh Snyder, a mega watt amalgam of “Carrie Bradshaw-Liz Lemon blend, with a Monica Gellar undertone; a Julia Sugarbaker bouquet on the nose, with a nice Blanche Devereaux finish.”  In other words, she’s a hoot!
