S.U.C.K. Returns to The Mockingbird Bar with KNOWVEMBER On Today

S.U.C.K. (Stand Up Comedy Klub), returns to The Mockingbird Bar in the East Village with a performance on Friday, November 17 at 8:00 pm. The monthly show has been playing to packed houses since August of 2016 and features comics from Gotham Comedy Club, Funny or Die, UCB, The Wild Project, Del Close Marathon, NY Sketchfest, and Joe's Pub.

S.U.C.K. is composed of six of NYC's most intriguing comics, performers, and weirdos: including Hank Browning (Funny or Die, Broadway Comedy Club), Samantha Fontana (F'd in the East Village, Gotham), Gregory Lotsvin (Funny or Die, Broadway Comedy Club), Shane O'Neill (Tonight's Special, Characters Welcome at UCB), Jill Pangallo (Joe's Pub, Gotham), and David Perez (Shade at Steppenwolf, David on Demand).

Guest comics include Wanjiko Eke (Cinder Block Comedy Festival, MTV, UCB) and Dina Hashem (Bridgetown Comedy Festival, UCB's Whiplash, Comedy Central).

With a broad range of perspective, styles, and levels of depression, S.U.C.K. creates a show as diverse as New York City itself except that they only feature one person of color. But they DO have two half-jews, an adopted person, a gay gentleman who's occasionally mistaken for trans, and a white dude who can grow an afro.

Performances take place at The Mockingbird Bar (between East 2nd and 3rd Streets), 25 Avenue B, New York 10009. Subways: J/Z/M to Delancey-Essex Street.

Tickets are $5.00 and are available at

Doors open at 7:30 pm, no drink minimum.
