Inner Circle Show 2018
The Inner Circle Show is an annual charity event where New York City's political reporters spoof the President, Mayor and top politicos in the state and the nation and in turn take a comedic hit in song, dance and sketches from the Mayor himself.

Held on April 21, 2018 at the New York Hilton Midtown, the evening begins with a cocktail hour and photo opportunity for the cast and audience alike. Dinner is served afterwards.

Then on with the show! In song and dance, the reporters, including many who can actually sing and dance, and a few who make a valiant effort, review the news in biting dialogue and song lyrics. Mayor Bill de Blasio is the center of attention as the members of the print, broadcast and digital media take to the stage to make light of his reign at the top. The governor and the president are not spared either.

Tradition holds the mayor answer the reporters' jibes with a review of his own, with a little help from his show business friends.

Past shows have included appearances by Steve Buscemi, Cynthia Nixon, Eli Manning, Caroline Kennedy and the casts of Chicago, Mamma Mia! and Mary Poppins (guests of Mayor Bloomberg); Julie Andrews, the cast of The Sopranos, and "Rudia," better known as Rudy Giuliani in drag (guests of Mayor Giuliani). Fiorello La Guardia once rode in on a circus elephant and David Dinkins mounted a horse to attend one show. Ed Koch entered dressed in a gold lamé suit with a mechanical bird on his head. Michael Bloomberg, "flew in" as Spiderman and pretended to smoke dope as "Mair" with the cast of "Hair."

The Inner Circle has been entertaining New Yorkers since 1923, when reporters based in City Hall began holding dinners to satirize the politicians they covered. It has been going strong ever since.

Dinner guests can avail themselves of a special Inner Circle room rate at the New York Hilton Midtown by mentioning the Inner Circle when making room reservations for Friday night April 20 or April 21, 2018.

The Inner Circle is a 501(c)3 charity; profits are distributed to neighborhood charities in the New York City area recommended by Inner Circle members.
