HAUNTING RENDITIONS LIVE is what happens when Eliot Glazer, a classically trained vocalist-turned-comedian, takes some of pop music's most infamous songs and turns them into highbrow, sweeping ballads. Like a twisted version of MTV Unplugged, Austin City Limits, or VH1 Storytellers, HAUNTING RENDITIONS LIVE is an intimate night of bad music made good.
ELIOT GLAZER is a UCB-trained writer and performer who currently serves as a staff writer on Darren Star's new TV Land series, YOUNGER starring Sutton Foster and Hilary Duff. Eliot co-created and stars in the cult favorite web series, IT GETS BETTERISH, which Time Out New York called "the next big thing" and HAUNTING RENDITIONS, which has received national media attention. His video, SHIT NEW YORKERS SAY went viral in January 2012 and has over four million hits on YouTube. His blog, MY PARENTS WERE AWESOME, was turned into a book in 2010 by Random House. He has been a blogger for BuzzFeed, Best Week Ever and New York Magazine's Vulture, as well as the New York Times Magazine. Last year, Broadway Video's Above Average released his sketch series, ELIOT'S SKETCH PAD. Most recently Eliot starred in and produced several digital shorts in support of the HBO series LOOKING and is currently hosting the show's official podcast. He has contributed to Funny or Die's BILLY ON THE STREET and written for VH-1's BEST WEEK EVER. Eliot will next be seen in a recurring role on season of two of Comedy Central's hit series, BROAD CITY. He is currently developing VERY COOL BOOBS for Comedy Central, an original half-hour, scripted comedy in which he'll create, executive produce and star.
