Schtick or Treat: 30+ NYC comedians perform as their favorite comedy legends

Here we go! Matt Ruby and Mark Normand present two BIG shows...

A pre-Halloween comedy tribute show
30+ NYC comedians come together to perform as their favorite comedy legends!
Sat Oct 25 @ 8pm - FREE
The Creek in Long Island City
10-93 Jackson Ave at 49th Ave
Just one subway stop from Brooklyn and Manhattan

The idea: Bands often perform special "tribute" sets on Halloween and do an entire show as a famous band. It's always a lot of fun and crowds love it. So we figured why not do the same thing with comedy? It will be a quick turnover show where each comic gets up to three minutes to do their thing. Expect mayhem.

Thursday, Oct. 30 @ 8pm - $5

The most inappropriate comedy chat show/podcast around makes its Manhattan debut! The past couple of shows were standing room only at The Creek so we're excited to bring it from LIC to the LES. This show will feature Victor Varnado (Conan), Myq Kaplan (Live at Gotham), Brooke Van Poppelen (UCB), Mike Lawrence (beard), and boundary issues. Lots of boundary issues.

It's a podcast too:

I've never been more excited.

Amazing line-up! I love that Tom McCaffrey is not only performing, but he'll also be impersonated as well.

Abbi Crutchfield said...

I think Ben Kissell should be doing Norm MacDonald since he channels him on stage all the time. But I'm interested in Jesse Popp's version.

Mo Diggs said...

I am amped about seeing Steve Martin.
First time performing since 1981!
