Legendary comedian Murray Hill is hosting a New Year’s Eve blowout-bash, with performances by some of New York City’s best comedians and musicians, not to mention three sizzling-hot burlesque acts. Oh, and a monkey.

“The acts in the show, well, they’re incredible and jaw-dropping performers, each and every one of them,” said Hill. “The show is a true variety show and there is something for everyone! And who knows what these acts will do — I never know! And yes, the show includes a monkey!”

Hill styles himself as the hardest-working middle-aged man in show business — a well-earned moniker for a guy who works six days a week boozing, schmoozing, and playing up his rat-pack persona past the stroke of midnight.

“The best thing about performing in New York City for so long is the experience of pounding the boards — there’s no better education than the dumps, dives, and theaters in this city, and I’ve done ‘em all,” Hill continued. “New Years Eve is the ultimate night to entertain, and you’ve gotta have a well-oiled host to deliver.”
