I'm doing two free comedy shows this Monday night. The first is Case of the Mondays at Manchester Pub, 920 2nd Avenue (on the corner of East 49th Street), New York, NY. This week's show starts promptly at 7:15, and seating is limited so try to get there early. Fire Island Beer Company is sponsoring the show, so come grab a $3 pint and enjoy some free comedy, featuring Ray Marshall, Harrison Greenbaum, TJ Del Reno, Hailey Boyle, Rachael Parenta, Ben Aflalo, and myself. Hosted by the very funny Phoebe Robinson.
Then at 8:00 it's on to Not Friday, the free weekly comedy show in which I perform with fellow producers James Harris and Adam Pateman over at Aces and Eights, 34 Avenue A and 3rd Street, New York, NY. Check out this week's lineup:
Pete Holmes. Pete has been on VH1's Best Week Ever, and he's been on Comedy Central for both Premium Blend and his own half-hour Comedy Central Presents. He has also drawn cartoons for the New Yorker, and is a regular on CollegeHumor.com.
Dan St. Germain. Dan was a 2009 ECNY Best Emerging Comic nominee, a finalist in the NY Comedy Contest, and a semi-finalist in the Boston Comedy Festival. He is a contributing writer for the Onion News Network, and he is currently working on a new film, Rex Gets Sober. Dan is also collaborating with Mike Drucker, writer for Jimmy Fallon, on another film project.
Jessica Watkins. James Harris says she's funny, and he's usually right about these things.
I'll see you Monday.
