Praised as “a founding father of a genre that fuses performance art, music and stand-up comedy,” The New York Times hails Isaac Mizrahi's show as “raucously funny.” Mizrahi will perform classics by Charles Aznavour, Blondie and Cole Porter. He’ll be joined by his band of (handsome, thin, single) (maybe not single) jazz musicians, led by Ben Waltzer. Mizrahi will tell (mostly true) irreverent stories and will re-gift items he’s picked up from overzealous fans, business associates and gala dinner swag bags.
Isaac Mizrahi has worked extensively in the entertainment industry as an actor, host, writer, designer and producer for over 30 years. He is the subject and co-creator of Unzipped, a documentary following the making of his Fall 1994 collection which received an award at the Sundance Film Festival. He hosted his own television talk show The Isaac Mizrahi Show for seven years, has written two books, and has made countless appearances in movies and on television. He currently serves as a judge on Project Runway: All-Stars.
Mizrahi has performed cabaret at Café Carlyle, Joe’s Pub, West Bank Café and City Winery locations across the country. He has directed productions of A Little Night Music and The Magic Flute for the Opera Theatre of St. Louis. Annually, he directs and narrates his production of the children’s classic Peter and The Wolf at The Guggenheim Museum in New York.
Mizrahi has his own production company, Isaac Mizrahi Entertainment, under which he has several projects in development in television, theatre and literature. He is at work on a memoir due out in 2019.
