Photographer Phil Provencio caught Michael Che on camera at Bar Matchless in Greenpoint Brooklyn. The show is called Broken Comedy, and the venue- one of our favorites in New York City- is a motorcycle racing bar by day. There’s a genuine CBGB “someone trashed the bathroom” vibe going on a Bar Matchless and the Broken Comedy Show is a perfect fit.
It’s absolutely one of the toughest rooms around, there are no easy laughs – so if you can get them to laugh here you’re rockstar status. As you can tell from the crowd shot, Che is a rockstar.
This particular night it was comedian Nimesh Patel’s birthday show. Nimesh is one of the co-founders & rotating hosts of the Broken Comedy Show. Whenever it’s someones birthday here there’s usually a lot of cheap champagne going around, and for some reason, skittles.
Che isn’t doing much- just writing and performing for live television on one of the most profilic shows on television every week. You may have heard of it– it’s called Saturday Night Live. He also is one of the strongest stand up comedians peforming today. Any chance you get to see Che on stage, take it. He’s the real deal.
