Featuring Mike Agranoff and John Forster
The partnered charity for this concert was Autism Speaks
Coffeehouse of the Absurd is an evening of intelligent and satiric comedy featuring MIKE AGRANOFF and JOHN FORSTER. Mike is renowned for songs of twisted logic ("Railroad Bill", wherein the title character gets into a heated argument with the singer of the song), mile-a-minute patter songs (The entire story of Hamlet in 3 minutes) and some of the most brilliant parodies this side of Weird Al Yankovic. John obviously fell asleep one too many times as a child listening to his Tom Lehrer albums. This is evidenced by his twisted sense of humor, his delightfully skewed view of the human condition, and his prodigious skills as a pianist. His songs have a knack for taking the plausible but improbable, and leading that to its implausible but inevitable conclusion by way of unlikely rhymes, horrible puns and ironic satire. Mike and John do a round-robin style show that is guaranteed to leave their audience in stitches!
