NOT FRIDAY with Cenac, Katz, McCaffrey, Kronberg & Donnelly

I love Mondays. Take a look at our lineup for Monday, August 2nd:




Kevin McCaffrey (Late Night with David Letterman)


Ben Kronberg (Jimmy Kimmel Live)
 
Sean Donnelly (Lil Seany Boy Show)

Not Friday is a free weekly comedy show that takes place every Monday night at 8:00 at Aces and Eights, 34 Avenue A and 3rd Street, NYC.  I will be performing along with co-producers James Harris and Adam Pateman.  2-for-1 drink specials.  21 & up to enter.

By the way, the NYC 2010 Kidney Walk is approaching, and I'm looking for team members and donations.  We had a lot of fun last year, and after 2 comedy shows and the Kidney Walk we were able to raise over $3000 for the National Kidney Foundation.  I would love to exceed that amount this year, but I can't do it without your help.  Please visit http://donate.kidney.org/goto/johnszeluga to join the team or make a donation.  Even the smallest amount helps!

Thank you,

John Szeluga

Sunday Night Stand-Up, followed by Not Friday

I want to tell you about 2 great shows coming up in just a few days. First, I'm very happy to be returning to Sunday Night Stand-Up, which is produced by two of the funniest people I know, RG Daniels and Erik Bergstrom. This is a free show that takes place Sunday night at 8:00 over at the Three of Cups Lounge, 83 1st Avenue, New York, NY.

By the way, Erik Bergstrom is the author of Grimmer Tales, a book I very highly recommend.  If you can't find it at your local bookstore, go order a copy from Amazon.  Trust me, you'll like it.

Then on Monday night at 8:00 it's time for another Not Friday over at Aces and Eights, 34 Avenue A and 3rd Street. This week's show features Rory Scovel (Comedy Central's Live at Gotham), Jared Logan (Last Comic Standing, Comedy Central's Live at Gotham), Nick Vatterott (MTV), Chris Locke (The Jon Dore Show), and Katie Crown (Comedy Central's Comedians of Comedy Tour in NYC, Total Drama Island).  As always, I will be performing along with co-producers James Harris and Adam Pateman.

Free show, with 2-for-1 drink specials!  21 & up.

Keep it real, homies.
