Cole Escola — "Quick! Pretend I'm Asleep!”
Friday, April 5th | Dynasty Typewriter at The Hayworth
Two Shows: 7:30pm & 9pm
Cole, a comedian, actor, and writer, has been named one of the 2014 OUT 100 and Time Out New York's Top Ten Downtown Cabaret Performers. Most notably, Cole played ‘Matthew’ on Hulu’s “Difficult People” where he also served as a writer. He played ‘Chris” on “Man Seeking Woman” on FXX, and recurred on the Netflix series “Girl Boss”, Amazon’s “Mozart In the Jungle” and the Tru Tv series “At Home with Amy Sedaris”. Cole just finished writing on the upcoming Broadway Video series The Other Two for Comedy Central. He was also the co-creator, writer, and star of the lo-fi cult-hit TV show "Jeffery & Cole Casserole." Other TV appearances include "Nurse Jackie," "Law & Order," and "Smash." He originated the role of Bridget Everett's fetus in "Rock Bottom" for The Public Theater in a performance Variety referred to as "heroic." His sketch comedy show, "The First Gay President," sold out every performance and generated buzz and praise from the likes of PAPER Magazine and Lena Dunham. Due to overwhelming demand, his wildly popular solo show, ‘Help! I’m Stuck!’ has extended its run at Joe’s Pub in NY each month, and previously made its way west for a sold-out run in Los Angeles.
