Heeello ladies! This monthly stand-up special only features comedians with two X Chromosomes. Hosted by Andrea Shapiro and sponsored by Raising Astoria!
The storytelling workshop taught by Kelly Jean Fitzsimmons is coming to a close, and the students want to show you what they’ve learned. Each student gets up on stage to tell someone else's story, using devices that they’ve learned and cultivated throughout the class. The next round of No You Tell It! has yet to be announced, so stay tuned.
Calvin Cato knows how to live-tweet a show - just watch his twitter feed blow up during an episode of Fox’s “Empire” to see what we’re talking about. He also knows how to host a show, thank gosh. This month’s LGBT and LGBT-Friendly line-up includes: Ophira Eisenberg, Chris Doucette, Frank Liotti, Sydnee Washington, May Wilkerson, Samantha Ruddy. Tickets are $5.
First Day Productions is proud to Present The Tempest...as a cabaret! If you fell asleep during the reading of the play in high school, or pretended to understand the colonial undertones during a Shakespeare Lit class, now’s the time to actually enjoy it! The show will run Thursday and Friday night. Doors open at 7:30 and tickets are $20 a piece.
As always, host/producer Jeremy Wein has pulled through with a killer line up. You may recognize some of these faces from shows like “Adam Devine’s House Party,” “Boardwalk Empire,” and “Mystery Science Theater 3000”: Mike Kelton, Joe Pera, Nore Davis, Frank Coniff, Sharron Paul and Micah Sherman. Tickets are $5!
There’s a lot to choose from for Saturday (like a Nonfiction Book Proposal class, a Board Game Meetup and back-to-back comedy shows) but the zombie classes are too weird to pass up. At 3pm Melissa Ross teaches you how to apply the makeup of the undead, and at 5pm you’ll learn about the evolution of stone tools into modern weapons, and how they can be used once the imminent zombiepocaplyse hits NYC. It’s all in preparation for the season finale of the Walking Dead Sunday at 9!
If you’re interested in writing fiction but need a gentle kick in the butt to get started on your story, this is the class for you. Tim Fredrick coaches new and long-term writers through fiction techniques, devices, emulation, and on his or her own piece.
