    Mikhail Horowitz & Gilles Malkine are back at Unison!
    Poor, Obscure, and Over 64 The biologically incorrect and unilaterally castigated comedic duo of Mikhail Horowitz & Gilles Malkine will return to Unison Arts for their annual pre-Thanksgiving gig on Saturday, November 18, at 8 p.m. The clueless twosome will perform their usual fare—namely, irreverent versions of folk and pop classics, literary lampoons, political screeds, pointless anecdotes, topless clog dancing, Trappist raps, and Tibetan-Lubavitcher overtone kvetching. To quote just one astonished critic, Michiko Kakutani in the New York Times, “I thought they’d never leave.”
