Tony and Emmy Award-winning comedian, actor, producer, writer and director Billy Crystal brings his U.S. tour to Orlando for a show at Dr Phillips Center on February 1, 2017.
Coming off the heels of his recently critically-acclaimed Australian tour, Crystal promises a hilarious and intimate evening for the Orlando engagement.
“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. “It’s loose, unpredictable and intimate – the most fun I’ve had on stage in a long time.”
He got his start as a stand-up comic, but got his big break when cast as Jodie Dallas, the gay son, on the 70s ABC series “Soap.” He was also a cast member on “Saturday Night Live” during the 1984-85 season, coining classic characters such as his parody of Fernando Lamas, a smarmy talk-show host whose catchphrase, “You look… mahvelous!,” became a media sensation.
During the late 80s and early 90s, Crystal was comic gold in films such as The Princess Bride, When Harry Met Sally, City Slickers, and as the voice of Mike Wazowski in the blockbuster Pixar film Monsters, Inc., and its prequel Monsters University.
He won his Tony for 700 Sundays, a two-act, one-man play, which he conceived and wrote about his parents and his childhood growing up on Long Island.
Crystal has hosted the Academy Awards nine times, was a founding host of the Comic Relief charity, and his latest memoir, “Still Foolin’ Em: Where I’ve Been, Where I’m Going, and Where the Hell are My Keys?” was an instant New York Times best seller.
