While it’s not hard to find an actor or writer waiting tables or bartending in New York to make ends meet, we found one Tony Award nominee who doesn’t plan to give up his day job. Here’s why.
Robert Askin’s comedy about an evil sock puppet, Hand to God, which our reviewer described as “funny, filthy, violent and sensitive” has been nominated for five Tony Awards. Conceivably it won’t be hard to come up with a drink named after puppet Tyrone, who believes all our troubles started when some jerk invented right and wrong.
Askins will be turning over his bar towel on June 7th, when he’s due at Radio City Music Hall for the 69th Annual Tony Awards®.
For the rest of us, we’ll be watching on CBS, starting at 8/7c.
