Max Silvestri @ Rififi, NYC - Oct 29, 2007 (CRED)
Max Silvestri

In addition to all the special comedy shows always going on, don't forget that there are plenty of shows that happen weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly in NYC that are always reliable, rarely over $5, and usually feature some of the biggest comedians in the business. Why, just the other day Invite Them Up featured Jim Gaffigan, Demetri Martin, Nick Kroll, Andy Blitz, and Max Silvestri. Nuts, right!? Here are some other recurring shows I highly recommend.

What else? -Klaus

The Ladies took to the stage this past Monday for the 1st ever Dykes On Mics. Jackie Monahan, Leah Dubie, Amy Beckerman and Gloria Bigelow are the self proclaimed Dykes who made this show possible. The weekly show takes place in the upstairs room at the Rubyfruit Bar and Grill every Monday at 8pm (531 Hudson St. New York, NY. Between W. 10th and Charles) With no cover and very funny ladies you really can’t go wrong. Come and check out some of your favorite comics as they work on new material and fine tune some their classic comedy bits.

Not your typical comedy show, Dykes On Mics has a homey, take off your shoes and get comfortable kind of feel. This past Monday was hosted by Leah Dubie and featured Kendra Cunningham who also doubled as the bartender, Shawn Hollenbach was representing the boys, Amy Beckerman talked about her attempts with heterosexuality, Anne Neczypor had the room in stitches with a dramatic reading of a recent email, Jackie Monahan gave us Katherine Hepburn like you’ve never seen before and Gloria Bigelow closed out the show with incite into the world of black gay rage. What can I say gay girls know how to make people giggle.

Come on out and support these very funny ladies next Monday, the 19th. You never know who might you see. Oh and this week I’ll be hitting the stage so don’t miss it.

great summary, it's always a little disconcerting to see how many of the great regular shows come out of rififi.

variety shac :: ucbt :: monthy

hot tub with kurt and kristen :: monthly :: pianos? comix?

though, i suppose those are both technically variety shows, not solely stand-up.

i really like going to gutbucket. it's a free show on fridays monthly at midnight at UCBT. comedians put their names in a bucket, 15 get drawn and they each get five minutes. it strikes this perfect balance of the audience really wanting everyone to succeed, and people doing their best five minutes of material. it attracts a lot of newbies, but by the time you realize someone is awful, they only have a couple of minutes left. it's the only standup open mike at UCB and i love going, but it always starts late and ends way late. the last time i went, the show didn't end until 3:00am, but the guy who went on last may have done to best set i've ever seen. which sucks because you're in chelsea at 3am, but you're in a good mood because you've been drinking $2 pbrs. oh, and the regular host, pete holmes, is _amazing_. really sharp and quick.

also, cbs/nyc sounded pretty certain it would find a new venue after the demise of mo's. people should keep an eye out for it, as it was a great value for some big names.
