The lights come up, the music starts, and Jason Kravits walks on stage with… nothing. No script, no songs, no story.
Over the course of an exhilarating 75 minutes, Jason keeps the crowd on the edge of its collective seat by regularly pulling audience suggestions from a fishbowl (e.g. "The last text you received," "Words to live by," etc.), then using them as fodder to create an entire life story in song, with every bit of it - including every lyric and melody- made up on the spot! Backed by John Thorn and the most fearless band in the business, Off The Top is music, comedy, improv, cabaret and magic, all stirred together and poured into a martini glass, creating one intoxicating cocktail of fun.
Jason has been been a familiar face on American television for over three decades, having made appearances in over 50 television shows, including The Big Bang Theory, Curb Your Enthusiasm and even the final episode of Friends. Off The Top marks his return to Crazy Coqs after playing to sold out crowds at the Adelaide Cabaret Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe, as well as his regular home stage, Birdland in NYC.
Dubbed "Hilarious" by the New York Times and "Seat of your pants perfection" by Adelaide Festival Reviews, Off The Top isn't just cabaret... it's the show of a lifetime. Every time.
