American TV regular and Broadway veteran Jason Kravits is to return to Crazy Coqs for a star-studded, week-long residency, of his critically acclaimed, jaw-dropping, completely improvised solo evening of music and comedy, ‘Off The Top’
Special guest stars include Rachel Tucker, Sarah-Louise Young, Josie Lawrence, Joe Stilgoe, Ruth Bratt, George Ikediashi (Le Gateau Chocolat) and more.
The lights come up, the music starts, and Jason walks on stage with… nothing. No script, no songs, no story – and no net! By the evening’s end, he’ll have created an entire life story in song, with every bit of it – every lyric, every melody, every Sondheim standard and 11 o’clock number – made up on the spot, “off the top” of his nimble head.
Supported by the most daring band in the business, as well as a different celebrity guest every night, ‘Off The Top’ is an intoxicating cocktail of music, comedy and fun… and it’s never the same show twice!

A regular on American television, Jason has amassed over 60 credits, including roles on ‘The Big Bang Theory’, ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’, ‘The Kominsky Method’, ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’, ‘Young Sheldon’ and even the last ever episode of ‘Friends’.
