It's great-- I was simultaneously laughing with Ted (he clearly has a blast doing it) and laughing at the character he created. He makes fun of some of the tropes of comedy performance while also embracing them. If you take a date to this, and they don't leave saying "What the hell did I just see," then they're a keeper with a good sense of humor. Be prepared for some full frontal fun. Sit up front and he will get you in on the action. Yo, "The New Yorker Magazine" theater critic, where you at on this review section, huh? Get some taste.

This show is so much fun. Ted's energy is infectious. It's a perfect thing to take a friend to for an offbeat and unexpected night out in New York. And you may get driven home by Ted is his cab! (like I did!)
Great show! Super fun! Ted truly is the complete performer. The show is thoroughly entertaining and Ted is a talented class act not to be missed.
I loved the show! The combination of comedy and magic left me full of laughter the whole night long. Ted is an engaging, energetic performer that interacts beautifully with his audience. I would definitely see the show again, hands down.
Had a BLAST watching Ted and his dance-crazy sidekick! Hysterical, witty, and executed to perfection-- This show is the real deal! Thanks for all laughs, Ted and company! A must see!
Crazy fun. Creative and interactive. I didn't know what a complete performer was until I saw this show. Probably the most unique show I've ever seen on or off or off-off broadway. Someone even won a free cab ride home at the end!!!!!!!!
Great show! Bizarre. Charming. Interactive. Fun. I'm not saying anything original here. Just go see it!
My husband and I went to this show last night for the first time. It was so much fun!!! We will be back for sure, with friends in tow. Trust me, go -- you will have a great time!
My son and I didn't stop laughing. Ted Greenberg has phenomenal timing, wit, memory and off-beat connection. I can't imagine anyone not loving this
The show was a hoot! That Ted was a writer for The Letterman Show comes across loud and clear given the very "Lettermanesque" brand of humor (or is it that David L delivers very "Greebergesque" comedy?) In any event, if you like the madcap hijinks of that late night show, then this silly, zany gem is for you. If not, then don't bother to friend me on Facebook. Thanks, Ted!
Was not sure what to expect, but found the show 100x funnier than the brief on-line video I saw somewhere- this is not your average evening- and I was kicking myself for not seeing it earlier- one of the problems of living in NYC is you put off the better things far too long.
Saw Ted Greenberg's The Complete Performer for the 2nd time Saturday night. It was funnier than ever. It's hard to describe the show without giving away its many surprises. But, I will say it's fast, furious, charming and unexpected. I brought my grown daughter, and she loved it too. Everyone in the house -- which was packed by the way -- loved it as well. Do yourself a favor and go.
This was my second time seeing the performance and it was as funny as the first time. Lots of laughs at what is best described as "charming weirdness."
Thanks Ted Greenberg for an amazing performance last night! What an amazing time to celebrate my new opportunity in the Big Apple again in style for the second time at your show! Your one of my favs now & Craig Ferguson would be jealous to know that your also my fav. Sorry Craig...Ted Greenberg rocks & is hilarious I could not stop laughing!!! I highly recommend seeing this show if you haven't yet it's a must! Thanks Ted you're very talented...
Went this past weekend with my girlfriend & had a great time! Situated in a cozy theatre space with a bar, it made for a fun start to our evening! I'd recommend it to any of my out-of-town friends when they come to the city. Definitely a highlight! 5/5!
Love this show. I had no idea what to expect, but every aspect of it was fun. A perfect night out with my girlfriends, laughing at Ted and enjoying ourselves. Highly recommend.
