Hasty roasts Ben Stiller as its Man of the Year

2 min read

The producers of the Hasty Pudding Theatricals, Evan Eachus ’08 and Scott Wilmore ’08, will present Man of the Year honoree Ben Stiller with his Pudding Pot on Friday (Feb. 23) at 8:10 p.m. in the Zero Arrow Street Theatre, prior to the start of the opening night performance of “The Tent Commandments.” The theater is serving as the temporary home for the theatrical group while its Holyoke Street location undergoes major renovations.

An actor, director, producer, and writer, Stiller continues to imprint his unique comedic and dramatic perspective on film, television, and stage. He can currently be seen in Shawn Levy’s box-office hit “Night at the Museum,” co-starring Robin Williams and Owen Wilson.

Stiller has starred in numerous major motion pictures including “Meet the Parents,” “The Royal Tenenbaums,” “There’s Something About Mary,” and “Flirting with Disaster.” In the spring of 2005, Stiller completed a successful run off-Broadway in Neil LeBute’s play “This Is How It Goes,” at New York’s Public Theatre. He can be seen next in an upcoming as-yet untitled comedy that’ll re-team Stiller with the writing-directing team of Peter and Bobby Farrelly.

For tickets to “The Tent Commandments,” contact the Hasty Pudding box office at (617) 495-5205 or visit The show continues in Cambridge through March 18 at varying times.
