Your Friends and Enemies

Your Friends and Enemies is a show about the creepy, marginalized, and perverse. It examines the dark and ridiculous, poignant and silly lives of people you like and people you hate, despite the fact they may be one in the same. Chicago performer John Hartman (The Second City Touring Company, Baby Wants Candy, Just for Laughs Chicago) brings his acclaimed solo show to the UCB New York for one night only. Starring John Hartman (The Second City Touring Company) "Emerging onstage as a slight figure with an aw-shucks demeanor, John Hartman doesn’t look like a man with a demented heart. But in his new solo show Your Friends and Enemies, the comic and improviser first disarms with charm, then ratchets up the icky, offering up 60 minutes of comic perversions via a menagerie of bizarre characters. Hartman has range. I couldn’t help but think he belongs in the Amy Sedaris school of hilarious multiple personality disorder. I thoroughly loved Hartman’s fringe characters coupled with the show’s whizbang timing. Hartman proves his friends and enemies share a common thread: They’re highly entertaining to watch." -Jason Heidemann, Time Out Chicago
