Title:GEMA Visits Broadway Hit “Oh, Hello”

GEMA meets
Alums Nick Kroll & John Mulaney
starring in “Oh, Hello”

On December 15, 2016, 25 GEMA members attended the Broadway hit show “Oh, Hello,” written by and starring Nick Kroll (C ’01) and John Mulaney (C ’04). “Oh, Hello,” tells the story of a pair of geriatric roommates after they lose their rent-controlled apartment on the Upper West Side. It has everything: a play within a play, a disturbing dream sequence, Steely Dan, and a large tuna sandwich that is lowered down from the sky.

During a private Q&A after the show, the GEMA members were given the opportunity to ask Nick and John any questions they had, ranging from “How did you two meet?” to “Do you remember a time 10 years ago when a boy bought you a slice of pie, wrote his Georgetown email on a napkin, and told you that if you ever needed an intern, please contact him?” They discussed freshmen dorms, the closing of all the fun bars in Georgetown, and the kind of drive and determination one needs in order to succeed in comedy and the performance industry.
