Jay Johnson: The Two and Only


Through the art of ventriloquism and a diverse array of comic figures, Jay Johnson - best known as the schizophrenic character Chuck & Bob on the classic TV comedy series Soap - takes his audience on a multi-dimensional journey that combines his storytelling (which explores the history of the form from ancient time to vaudeville, as well as his work on the television series) and his skill, with a parade of characters that range from a subversive monkey to a befuddled tennis ball. Johnson breathes life into every object he touches, leaving the audience howling with laughter.


THE TWO AND ONLY was the winner of the 2007 Tony Award for Best Special Theatrical Event. To read rave reviews and for more information about the show, please


"One of the funniest shows of the year! A knock-'em dead show, wildly rich in laughter and wisdom that gives it real emotional power. The audience jumped up cheering!" - The New York Times
