George and Henry may change your life.
The premise is straight-forward," says actor/writer Stephen Wayne. "One can't see, the other can't hear, and they go everywhere together." This two-man sketch-comedy features 34 West co-founders, Wayne and Jeff Querin.
In a mash-up of The Odd Couple and The Carol Burnett show, the comedy has a certain anything-can happen vibe. "When the audience is laughing, one of us will vamp off script- and then its anyone's guess what will happen" adds Wayne.
Wayne and Querin (ages 40 and 43) have a strict policy when portraying "old timers". The secret is to keep it hopeful and positive," explains Wayne. "Everyone can identify with the underdog. It never works to make fun of the character you're playing, whether he's 22 or 92."
