Show: Gay Stuff
Venue: Peoples Improv Theater
Location: 123 E 24th St. New York, NY 10010
Time: 10:00 pm
Description of Show:
An isle of misfit comedy nerds descend upon the PIT to exploit their personal damage for cheap laughs. This new comedy team originates from the D.C. political scene, modern dance landscape, evangelical Christian world, and more.  Through sardonic sketches, stand-up, sassy walks and political subtext, “Gay Stuff” will dissect internalized homophobia, oppressive bro prerogative, and marginalizing gay cliches- by way of dick jokes. It shouldn’t (and may not) work but you’ll have a lot to talk about either way, so win.  Throwing down 2 gay-tastic sketches, and spearheading this whole farce, is rebel-clown choreographer Jamie Benson. For some reason, Benson’s highbrow-meets-lowbrow dance work has been featured in the New York and LA Times, around the U.S., across the international film festival circuit, within the Phaidon book “Wild Art”, and granted funding by the Brooklyn Arts Council. Learn more at jamiebenson.com
Lineup: Hannah Goldman, Christine Driscoll, Jamie Benson

Comedians’ Power Hour (CPH) is a touring comedy show that pits two comedians in head-to-head competition telling jokes and taking shots of beer on an exciting and inebriated journey to be crowned Power Hour Champion. Like the college game it is named after, a typical CPH has two comics drinking a shot of beer every two minutes, but in this show the competitors also trade off doing two minute sets of stand-up. As the hour goes on, hosts throw out challenges that play into the comics’ intoxication levels like doing two minutes of another comics’ material or giving an improvised Best Man Speech.  The show is hosted by Sarah Kennedy (Today Show, NBC’s Stand Up Diversity), CPH originated in Albuquerque, NM and now has offshoots in NYC, Denver, Austin, Seattle and tours everywhere in between. Seeing a chance to change the typical comedy show format, a handful of Albuquerque comics created a game show that features a mixture of comedic styles and genres.
