New York's Funniest Show Is Still Avenue Q

Having seen Avenue Q over a half a dozen times in the last few years I can honestly say that I have never been to show as funny and as original as the 2004 Tony Award winner for Best Musical. Let me guess. You forgot the show won Broadway's top prize didn't you. It's o.k. since most people are still in denial that a little show about puppets beat the mighty and powerful Wicked. Trust me. I didn't forget.

Now while Wicked continues to sell out night after night Avenue Q is still chugging along. Only now it's Off-Broadway. The show which was originally scheduled to close in September 2009 after a six year run on Broadway instead made the leap to Off-Broadway where it began it's journey in 2003. Now that's what I call full circle. For those of you who still haven't seen Avenue Q I just have one thing to say. What are you waiting for people? I dare you to find a show funnier than this one.

In fact the reason I had to see the show so many times is because everytime I would see something that would make me scream with laughter I would end up missing something else. Oh sure the show isn't for everybody. Although I have yet to find anybody who hasn't cracked up at the thought of two puppets having sex. You're laughing right now aren't you? Told you so. Get your tickets to see Avenue Q Off-Broadway. You will laugh your a** off. I guarantee it.
