• This Week at QED: March 2nd - March 8th

    So far, March is living up to it's name and coming in like a lion. A really big, mean, hangry lion. Duck into our doors for safety. 

    It's dark, it's different, and it may be dumpy, but it's hilarious. TV's Frank Conniff (TV's Frank on Mystery Science Theater 3000) is back for his monthly Monday night shenanigans! This time, he brings: Hari Kondobalu, Kevin Avery, Carolina Hildago, and Livia Scott.
    Due to some schedule adjustments, we're having a last-minute open mic! Crazy gals Kambri Crews and Lauren Krass co-host. Sign up is at 7PM, participants get 5 minutes. If you can't make the usual Sunday night gig, now's your chance to get on stage! 
    Let your tour guide Harmon Leon take you through the depths of American culture - like America's Most Beautiful Baby Contest or an interview with OJ Simpson. Leon is a Vice contributor and has been called "a comedy force to be reckoned with" by the Edinburgh List, and we're calling him whip-smart, hands on, and hysterical. 
    We LOVE nights when Laugh it Up, Astoria come to play, and it's not just because we're all cut from the same Queens-made cloth. It's high-energy and really funny. This lineup features: Anthony DeVito, Julia Lundy, Alexis Guerreros and Rachael Parenta. 
    Sharpen your pencils! This three-hour social drawing event with focus on figure drawing from a live model (stick figures are totally welcome, if that's what you're into). The $10 ticket price includes one free drink, but you'll need to bring your own materials. If you haven't been to one of these yet, now is definitely the time! 
    Get ready for the raunchiest jokes NYC has to offer. Comedians include: Frank Conniff (Mystery Science Theater 3000) Josh Gondelman (Last Week Tonight w/ John Oliver) Liza Treyger (Chelsea Lately), Emmy Blotnick (Comedy Central's Comics to Watch), and Leah Bonnema (AXS TV's Gotham Comedy Live). Hosts Ben Conrad and Lucas Connolly strongly encourage you to bring your grandparents and/or boss. 
    This workshop encourages you to write down the little stories of your life, the ones that nobody else knows about. Anne Born gives each student individual attention and generally makes feel warm and fuzzy, even when the subject matter is embarrassing (think your 6th grade hairstyle). Plus, it's totally free!
