Ryan Raftery returns to Joe's Pub tonight, August 6th (NOW SOLD OUT!) and again on Monday, August 27th at 9:30pm, with his fourth solo show, "Ryan Raftery KING OF THE JEWS!". Audiences have come to love Raftery's hilarious parodies and interpretations of pop songs, musicals and rock classics alike.
Described as a "demented Rat Packer for the millennium", Raftery has been seen on television on ABC's "Ugly Betty", "Malcolm in the Middle", "What I Like About You" and, most memorably, on "Law & Order: SVU" as Dennis Faber, the lovable Amish teenager with measles. In addition to his previous solo shows (Ryan Raftery & Friends: A SOLO ACT, Ryan Raftery's THIS ISN'T IT and Ryan Raftery's IT GETS WORSE!), Raftery was a part of a workshop reading of "Catch Me if You Can" as well as a performer in the Defying Inequality benefit at the Gershwin Theater.
"Ryan Raftery KING OF THE JEWS!" features backing vocals by Dianna Lora and Jason McCollum and musical direction by Daniel Lincoln. The show is directed by Jay Turton and produced by Conor McGill. For the August 27th show, Brandon James Gwinn will be subbing for Raftery's usual MD Daniel Lincoln due to a prior booking out of town.
