Hunter and Stan Freberg with Penn Jillette Writers Guild Theater — Beverly Hills
Friday, November 19th — 7:30PM
Hunter and Stan Freberg are launching a new series of CDs, Songs in the Key of Freberg, Songs About Life. They entertain throughout the world as “Two Funny Frebergs.” Stan and Hunter take aim at little daily frustrations: we will still scream at the phone company, cringe at the thought of remodeling, grumble during traffic and listen shell-shocked to pharmaceutical side effects on television commercials. The vicissitudes of life that exist to annoy and frustrate us all seem a little less agonizing with Stan and Hunter’s spin.
Legendary comic icon Stan Freberg has been making people laugh for decades. He has released more albums than we can count, and has sold millions. His albums and his humor resonate with all generations. Remember the recent Mad Men episode when Peggy and her colleague chanted “John and Marsha”? That was Matt Weiner’s homage to Stan. It was Stan who came up with the term “Grammy,” and we can only imagine what his mantle must look like. Stan received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on the same day as Marilyn Monroe, in 1960.
