"Full disclosure: I've been going here every other morning for an egg and cheese sandwich on a bagel. Hands down, the best egg sammy in the neighborhood! Great crew in there. (I like to talk about the Mets while waiting.) I'm now growing a bagel around my waist, but it's so good and it's important to support small businesses during these times. It's important to give back to the community."
The new HBO dramedy comedy series Somebody Somewhere features a lineup of actors and comedians that will be instantly recognizable to many New Yorkers. The show, which follows a directionless character played by local cabaret icon Bridget Everett returning to her Kansas hometown, is a comical look at a woman adrift (something many of us can probably relate to after the last few topsy-turvy years.)
Brooklyn resident and funnyman Murray Hill also appears in the show Fred Rococo, a cabaret emcee by night and local agricultural professor by day. Hill, who was recently displaced from his apartment because of a 4-alarm fire on his block, didn’t want to move too far from Williamsburg, his home of 25 years. However, he did move slightly closer to Greenpoint. These are some of his favorite neighborhood haunts, within walking distance, where he’s already become a regular.
Somebody Somewhere premieres on HBO on Sunday, January 16 at 10:30pm.
