Show: Bryan Callen
Venue: Gotham Comedy Club
Location: 208 W. 23rd Street NYC
Time: 8 & 10pm
Description of Show and Lineup:

Featuring Veronica Mosey and Rich Francese!
Bryan Callen: Bryan Callen is an actor, comic and podcaster. He’s currently in the middle of his fourth season as “Coach Mellor” on ABC’s THE GOLDBERG’S. He’s also the co host of the popular podcast THE FIGHTER & THE KID. In addition to performing in comedy clubs and theaters all over the U.S and Canada, he’s preparing for the release of his latest one hour special called NEVER GROW UP. In 1995 Bryan became an original cast member of MAD TV and went on to do many TV shows like Entourage, Sex & and CIty and Californication. He also played “Eddie” in The Hangover and “Samir” in The Hangover part 2.
Since Hollywood is a place where your last job has nothing to do with getting any future jobs, there’s little point in going through his whole resumé. Not to mention the fact that Bryan is actually writing this bio so it feels a tad obnoxious. The important thing Bryan wants you to know is that he has never been better than he is RIGHT NOW!
It’s also worth mentioning that Bryan likes to box, and play tennis. He is not good enough to compete at either sport, but he enjoys telling people that his boxing and tennis are “high level”. Thank you.

SATURDAY 11/18

 

Show: Tinder Live with Lane Moore feat.
Venue: Littlefield
Location:
635 Sackett Street Brooklyn, NY
Time: 8:30pm
Description of Show and Lineup:

Tinder Live has been named one of the best comedy shows in NYC for good reason. Produced and hosted by comedian Lane Moore (The Onion, HBO’s GIRLS, Brooklyn Magazine’s “50 Funniest People In Brooklyn,” former Cosmopolitan Magazine sex & relationships editor), Tinder Live is a totally improvised, anything-can-happen interactive comedy showstopper with helpful and oftentimes ridiculous Tinder tips, tricks, real-time swiping, and messaging (and sometimes even real-time phone calls with Tinder matches)! You’ll relate to Moore’s live-swiping and laugh at her reactions and find inspiration in her ridiculous, random emoji-filled messages (and sometimes even phone calls!) to would-be suitors. It’s also a great show to attend with a date, Tinder or otherwise. If you’ve ever been on an online dating site (or a bad date in general), you need to see this show.

Show: Monroe Martin & Derek Gaines: No Need For Apologies
Venue: Comedy Cellar at The Fat Black Pussycat
Location:
130 W. 3rd Street NYC
Time: 8:30pm
Description of Show and Lineup:

Monroe Martin is a colorful and imaginative comedian with a lifetime of hard knock experiences that have been spun into side-splitting jokes and stories.
Monroe was born and raised in Philadelphia, one usually wouldn’t find Monroe’s life story laughable. After all, how inappropriate is it to laugh at a foster child who jumped around from one dysfunctional family to another? Sit in the audience of one of Monroe’s performances and you’ll find yourself laughing at his adversity. Monroe’s honest and open approach to joke and storytelling universalizes his experiences.
 
Monroe’s creative and charismatic comedic voice has created a buzz within the New York comedy circuit. His intelligent and hysterical perspective resonates and has earned him respect among his peers.
Derek Gaines: The man with the smile of a thousand angels, Derek Gaines, a California born New Jersey resident, raised a new face in the wonderful art of comedy. July 29th 1984 was the day that the Lindenwold’s only campaign began. Derek started in the vicious comedy clubs of Philadelphia and then began to move around the tri-state area (Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York) working and still working on what he would like to call the “Left field crusader show”, the style of comedy that speaks to all but touches the very hearts of the Black, “can’t-be-a-thug suburbanite only children” of the US. Derek trusts and believes God for this gift he has been given and just wants to bring it back for the people. “Progress and not peril” is his motto and he plans to take that with him through every stage of his career.
