What We Like: Anthony Bourdain, 'The Big Stink!' and 'A Longwood Christmas'
(page 1 of 3)
with Eric Ripert
Nov. 2 at the Merriam Theater
Anthony Bourdain caused quite a stir recently when he went on the record slamming TV chef Paula Deen, calling her “the worst, most dangerous person in America.” Never one to mince words, Bourdain is also great at making us feel like we’re in on the joke, which should make for provocative theater at his Philly appearance this month with internationally acclaimed New York chef and restaurateur Eric Ripert. Bourdain’s brilliantly blasé gastro-itinerant series, No Reservations, just wrapped up its
seventh season on the Travel Channel, and it continues to surprise and occasionally offend—much like the man himself, warts and all. Visit kimmelcenter.org. —Hobart Rowland
