They’re long, they’re narcissistic, and they deserve to be honored the way only a nebbishy showman knows how. Murray Hill celebrates the ultimate bonfire of the vanities at his 8th Annual Oscar Party with the help of the people who actually should be winning the Oscars (if there were Oscars for performance art): Neal Medlyn, Erin Markey, Diane O’Debra, Kate McKinnon, and the cast of Our Hit Parade (Medlyn, Kenny Mellman, and Bridget Everett). Hill should be be dressed to the nines for this occasion—except when he’s dressed in nothing but spandex as Randy “The Ram” Robinson from The Wrestler. Attendees can weigh in on all the pomp and circumstance in interviews from the red carpet leading into Joe’s Pub.
