As their careers and finances hit new lows, their reluctant partnership threatens to turn into something neither one wants. Recorded before a live audience at the UCLA James Bridges Theater in January 2018.

About Neil Simon
Neil Simon, America’s most prolific and beloved playwright, is the author of more than thirty plays and screenplays. As a child he found refuge and inspiration watching early comedians like Charlie Chaplin, eventually deciding to incorporate comedy into his many works. He was awarded a Pulitzer Prize and three Tony Awards and received more Oscar and Tony Award nominations than any other writer. Despite this, many still feel he is underrated. He now splits his time between New York and Los Angeles.
