Mischievous musical comedy twosome MEL & EL invite all of the Citizens of New York to avoid heat stroke by stepping into the luxuriously air-conditioned theatre at their raucous monthly extravaganza, MEL & EL: OUR TIME OF THE MONTH, at 92YTribeca, 200 Hudson Street, NYC, tonight, July 12th at 7:00PM.
Created and performed by funny femmes Melanie Kinard and Ellie Dvorkin with composer Patrick Spencer Bodd, MEL & EL: OUR TIME OF THE MONTH is like a modern-day Laverne & Shirley full of dirty songs, delightful banter and devilish dish. Hailed as “outrageous” by The New York Times and “hilariously squirm inducing” by the Village Voice, MEL & EL features new material every single month along with a special guest comedian, phenomenal food and drink deals, and a generous dose of in-your-crotch comedy.
Chock full of new material inspired by the birth of Mel’s baby and El’s new lovesick status, this month’s show will feature original songs like “Facebook is Evil”, “White Lady with a Black Baby”, and “Judging You”, and a special appearance by guest comedian Ophira Eisenberg (Comedy Central, VH-1, NPR’s Ask Me Another).
