Gimmie The World

Wed Aug 21 @ 9:30PM

A character show? YES. But is that enough? NEVER. 

A group of comedic chameleons will each perform a character piece. Once that’s over you’ll want more….as usual.  So all the characters will improvise a scene together...for you. What sort of strange world would all of these characters live? Well, that’s for you to decide. 

Perhaps a country club from your home town? Or maybe behind the tennis court wall there....  Oh oh oh how about a haunted ranch in New Mexico!!! Seriously! The possibilities are endless and it’s up to you. So please help us out…. and give us the world! We really need it.

Big City Comedy Hotshots

Fri Aug 16 @ 11 PM

Andrew and Ian were just small town Boston boys with big city dreams. They strolled up New York’s comedy ladder to become the Big City Comedy Hotshots they are today. They kick ass at comedy and are so funny and smart (we aren’t just saying that because we are them. I’m a different guy writing this. I’m Ian...drew.... yes. Iandrew). They made friends with big stars who respect them a lot. Come watch them in what some NY Times has called “a comedy master class?” and what a Boston Globe has said “please keep them in New York.”

Also featuring comedy acts that Ian and Andrew have approved using their heightened comedy sensibilities. DISCLAIMER: all acts are best friends with Andrew and Ian.

Hosted by Ox Cable (Andrew and Ian)

Woof! Another Consecutive Yr of Living / Where U Belong

Sun Aug 4 @ 8:30PM

Another Consecutive Yr of Living

Another Consecutive Year of Living (ACYOL) is a serial birthday play about Evan Garrett’s 29th year on this planet. Starting on May 12th, 2019, Evan will write and perform a 30-minute play every week to illuminate the events that occurred that week. In 2020, for his 30th birthday, he will perform all 48 plays in one 24-hour event. The goal: create a process piece communicating how one person can change over the course of 52 weeks.

For Evan, this epic process is a question about if he can consistently make art he believes in when confronted with the repetition of life. Will this play light a path for Evan to continue on? Or will it act as a love letter saying good-bye to a dream-- exhausting the creative air from within him and reifying himself to the endless excel sheets on his screen?

Each week will guide him along the way; maybe at 30 he will learn which way he wants to go...

ACYOL is updated every week-- join us on our website and Facebook page

Where U Belong

When Big City hot shot Elby RichGuy gets engaged to the hottest man on Wall Street badabingbadaboom I'm walking here is there any cocaine on this party Elf starring Will Ferrell, she must return home and reconcile with her past... in Trash City USA.

Chase, Larry, and Jason Present: The Personal Introspection and Doin' Drugs Retreat

Sat, Jun 15 @ 11PM

Deep in the virginal forests of Peru, or, more accurately, slightly into Brooklyn just off the second busiest L train stop in the commercial center of the United States, there will be the deepest, most important connection one can have with the known world: a really fun adults-only retreat with mostly strangers!

Come see Shamans-In-Residence/Brooklyn Comedians Chase Montavon, Larry Sass-Ainsworth and Jason Weitzman get you to understand the most important facets of yourself: who you are (the "Me"), who you are as a person (the "Myself") and who are You "the "I"). You will learn truths about yourself and maybe in like the next life you will get to be something cool like a fish or a BKX rider. And the ways to obtain this level of self-knowingness are easy: taking incapacitatingly strong illegal drugs. 

Namaste you there!
