A Touching Skankfest Recap From a New York Comedy VIP

You're confused by the words touching and Skankfest in the same sentence.

Last week Skankfest took over Long Island City comedy. Skankfest derived its name from the podcast at its center, the Legion of Skanks, hosted by Big Jay Oakerson, Luis J. Gomez and Dave Smith.

11 Concept Shows in New York Putting a Twist on Stand Up

A big part of being a comedian is taking risks.

Which is why comedians generally enjoy doing shows that challenge them to step outside of their comfort zone. For both them and the audience, it breaks up the monotony of the typical stand-up comedy show. New York City residents have access to literally thousands of comedy shows every year. Here are some of the best shows in NYC where comedians perform stand-up with a twist.

Big Jay, Dan Soder and Rick Shapiro Star in Animated Short Featuring O.J., Osama Bin Laden and Hitler

Luis J Gomez and Dave Smith have waded into this murky territory with their new animated short The Alliance of Really Really Good People. But as you can imagine coming from two thirds of Legion of Skanks, "subtle" it is not. This teaser episode promises to show that some of the worst people in history, from Hilter to Justin Bieber, are merely misunderstood defenders of America.
