Vaudevisuals interview with Jake Broder – “His Royal Hipness Lord Buckley”

I have always enjoyed the work of Lord Buckley and the people who have been inspired by him.

When I saw that Jake Broder was doing a show about Lord Buckley at 59e59 Theatres  (one of my favorite NY venues) I had to get an interview.

North Coast Repertory Theatre presents

 HIS ROYAL HIPNESS LORD BUCKLEY

By JAKE BRODER
Directed by DAVID ELLENSTEIN
Starring JAKE BRODER
With MICHAEL LANAHAN
Musicians MARK HARTMAN, BRAD RUSSELL, DANIEL GLASS
Following sold-out runs in London and Los Angeles, Jake Broder returns to New York with his critically acclaimed salute to counter-culture icon Lord Buckley. The largely forgotten comedian of the 1940s and 50s, who was described by Frank Sinatra as “the most sensational comic of our time,” is cited as having inspired a myriad of entertainers including Robin Williams, Johnny Depp, Whoopi Goldberg, George Carlin, Richard Pryor, Lenny Bruce, and Bob Dylan, among others.
In His Royal Hipness Lord Buckley, Broder and his be-bop jazz trio will transport audiences back to an exciting reimagining of a Buckley performance in a swirling mix of comedy, be-bop, and cabaret.
“STUNNING! EXTRAORDINARY!”
-The Evening Standard

“IT WAS F*CKING AWESOME!”
-Kevin Spacey

“THE MESMERIZING JAKE BRODER INCARNATES THE 1950S CULT LOUNGE PERFORMER LORD BUCKLEY ON A HEADLONG RIDE THROUGH THE LATE BEAT PHILOSOPHER’S OEUVRE.”
-The New Yorker

“THE COOLEST, GROOVIEST, GRANDEST COMEDIAN WHO EVER FLAPPED HIS CHOPS ON THIS SWEET SWINGING SPHERE.”
-Washington Post
