TOO CLEVER BY 20% --An Evening with John Forster

Urban Stages, 259 West 30th St., New York, NY 10001

Four-time Grammy nominee JOHN FORSTER bursts out of lockdown to perform his uniquely inspired and hilarious songs which have won comparisons to the likes of George Carlin and Frank Zappa. The Boston Globe: “If Joni Mitchell and Daffy Duck had a love child, he’d probably write songs just like JOHN FORSTER. His sharply observed satires range from sheer slapstick to Jon Stewart-acute, so it’s little wonder that songwriting legend Tom Lehrer said, ‘You don’t need me anymore—you’ve got John Forster to kick around.’”

Proof of Vaccination required.

General Admission: $30
