Jeff Kramer was married in Skaneateles

This motivated him to write the funniest play in the world.

The Post-Standard's humor columnist Jeff Kramer is shamelessly using his Skaneateles wedding to plug his new play. It opens June 15 at The Redhouse in Armory Square and will run for two weekends including a Sunday matinee.

"It's about a guy who backs out of getting a vasectomy, but can't bring himself to tell his wife," Kramer said. "I'm touting it as the funniest play in the history of the world."

The play, "Lowdown Lies," is a production of the Armory Square Playhouse, which will take a step beyond its usual script-in-hand readings programs and present a full production of this new comedy. The cast features Central New York diva Moe Harrington, Jenn Flynn, Mark Eischen and Brendon Cole. Len Fonte, who is also a playwright, is the director.

"Moe has been disappointing as a diva. She's approachable, fun, hard-working and eager to share the credit with her three wonderfully talented co-stars, Moe Prop 1 (male), Moe Prop 2 (female) and Moe Prop 3 (male). It's disillusioning to all of us. Excuse me. I've gotta go. Moe's calling "

Kramer is the son-in-law of Skaneateles residents Robert and Sally Neumann. But given the subject matter, he thought better of playing this trump card, as it could make for awkward holiday celebrations. Not that these celebrations aren't already awkward having Kramer as a son-in-law.

"I was married in Skaneateles - it says so right on my marriage license," he said.
