G: I am in excellent Physical and Emotional Health… and How are you?

C: I’m doing well, Gav, thanks. ‘An evening with Gavin Friday and friends’… what’s the occasion?

G: A Hal Willner Presents Event which always proves to be an Extraordinary Affair… The Occasion? A few days before i turn 50 years of age….Hal and My Good Friends all coming together to perform around the world of Mr. Friday… The Evening is also a Charity Event for RED.

C: What do you usually do on your birthday?

G: Preferably I’d Hide…. but usually I am very happy to have a quiet bite to eat with a few close friends.

C: Your 50th will be a little different then. Why Carnegie Hall?

G: The most beautiful looking, best sounding Venue in one of the Greatest cities on Earth… to play Carnegie Hall is a dream come true….

C: Joel Grey’s on the bill. He’s a legend. Tell me about him.

G: Joel Grey is as you say a living Legend.. He has been a touchstone to me as a performer since i was a teenager…. He and his performance in ‘Cabaret’ for me was the key to the door ….. it was my introduction to Brecht, Weill, Lotte Lenya… it opened a very inspiring can of worms…

C: Gavin Friday live on stage… what’s he like?

G: How would I know I’ve never seen him ‘Live’?? … but am very much looking forward to the Show

C: What’s with the boxer dog?

G: His name is ‘GAV’… He looks full on but he doesn’t bite.
