Life is The Scott Gryder's Cabaret, Old Chum...

The Scott Gryder and The Nick Sula

I am not big into cabaret or show tunes, but the best of anything is always something to see. A prime example of this would be seeing Scott Gryder's hilarious act, including the rock steady accompaniment of Nick Sula on piano and occasional vocals. Gryder spins his web of comedy, quirky song choices and a finely tuned tenor voice that evokes Mandy Patinkin at his best. The Scott Gryder ( ) is able to switch gears from over the top schtick, ad libs that any improv pro would be proud of, kitschy show tunes to poignant love songs smoother than a Maserati... Seeing him and Nick perform at 3160 N. Clark in Chicago last night was like seeing a show on Broadway. Oh, what a night! Above are a few pictures I shot with my phone last night, and when I first caught Scotty and Nick this past November.
