GO ART! Salon presents "Without a Net: A Show Biz Odyssey" with comedian Hiram Kasten at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 21 at Seymour Place, 201 East Main St., Batavia. Reservations are required.

Kasten is a familiar face on many of television's most popular programs. He has guest starred on "Everybody Loves Raymond," "Curb Your Enthusiasm," "My Wife and Kids," "Sabrina The Teenage Witch," "Mad About You," "Fresh Prince of Bel Air" and many, many more.

He was a regular on the fifth season of "Seinfeld" as Elaine's office chum Michael, and was regularly befuddled as the friendly pharmacist Mr. Piel on "Seventh Heaven." Kasten has also guest starred on several hour-long dramas such as "Without A Trace" on CBS along with "Dirty, Sexy Money" on ABC. He has been on Ray Romano's new series, "Men of a Certain Age."

As a comedian, he has performed all over the country and starred in the hit show, "The Rat Pack is Back" in Las Vegas. As a regular opener for old friend Jerry Seinfeld, amongst others, Kasten is known for his storytelling skills that make each evening's show special and new.

Now, alone on stage with nothing but his mouth, Hiram Kasten takes us on the unique odyssey of a poor kid from the Bronx, who only wanted to be on television and, while never at a loss for detractors, he traveled the road less taken to see his dream come true.

With his sharp wit unleashed, he shares the story of a passionate life lived each day without a net, all the while befriending some of the biggest names in show business.

From the nightclubs in New York City, to the casinos of Las Vegas, to standing on the immortalized sound stages of Hollywood, the personal and behind-the-scenes moments that Hiram Kasten shares are at turns hilarious and touching, instructive and inspirational, and as true and beautiful as the human comedy itself.

A themed light supper and beverages are served with this Salon.

A contribution of $22 for GO ART! members, $25 for non-members is requested...or enjoy the series of three at $60 for members, $70 for non-members.
