TUESDAY 8/16

Show: Comedy 101. Tell a Joke or Be a Joke

Venue: The Village Underground

Location: 130 W 3rd Street

Time: 8pm

Description of Show: The concept for Comedy 101 is simple: open mic meets a roast. Five brave open mic comics hit the stage and try to tell a joke while a panel of three “mentors” who are some of New York’s fastest and funniest and most ruthless comics sit in judgment. If our open micers can’t make our panel laugh, and fast, they get interrupted with some “advice” and “tough love.”  The “advice” is rarely helpful, but brutally funny.  The show is hosted by the brilliantly funny  and  from SiriusXM’s Bennington Show, with our celebrity mentors to be announced.
