Wednesday, October 30 @ 9pm $10
The Skinny is a political comedy talk show with a twist: The host, Peter DeGiglio, is just an average schnook struggling to wrap his head around the events that shape our world. Joining him is a discussion panel of real life experts and a plethora of wacky variety acts.
The Adam Wade Show
Featuring Moth StorySLAM Champion, Adam Wade
Monday, October 14 @ 7pm $5
Moth storytelling favorite, Adam Wade, has put together many of his winning heartfelt and humorous stories for a special show. He'll also sing a few songs, and play video shorts. No two shows will be the same. A different featured guest will start the evening off.
The BTK Band
Monday, October 14 @ 9pm $5
Raconteurs regale the audience with true stories from their lives while The BTK Band, NYC's hardest-drinking improvised storytelling rock band, improvises music and lyrics to turn their stories into songs. As if Tom Waits and The Moth delivered a baby from the gaping maw of Chaos.
Naked Girls Reading
Wednesday, October 16 @ 9pm $20
A monthly nude literary salon featuring in-the-buff readings by local burlesque luminaries, professional librarians, authors and other Naked Girls.
Adventures with Melanie Hamlett
Monday, October 28 @ 7pm $7
If Melanie Hamlett is known for one thing, it's adventure (much to the dismay of her parents). Adventures with Melanie Hamlett brings NYC's top comedians to the theater stage for some epic tales around an intimate make-believe campfire. And just in case you don't believe some of it, Melanie will have pictures. We'll provide the entertainment and trailmix. Just don't forget your Nalogene water bottles and seven bucks.
