On Friday May 9, 2008 the NYC UCB Theater has an incredible night of comedy lined up, but two shows in particular are absolutely worth seeing.

At 8:00pm comedian Mike Birbiglia is doing 60 Minutes of New Comedy. Mike is huge. He just finished taping a pilot for CBS, he just put out a DVD and he has quite a few shows happening in May and June. To see 60 minutes of NEW comedy for a mere $8 is a ridiculous bargain. If Birbigs' 5/9 show sells out, you can wait in stand-by OR catch one of his other 60-minute performances on 5/15 and 5/23.

Then at midnight The Doug Benson Interruption is going to take over the UCB Theater. This particular installment will feature PATTON OSWALT, Esther Ku,Team Submarine, Anthony Jeselnik, and Rob Cantrell. For those who don't know, The Doug Benson Interruption is a show hosted by the EXTREMELY funny and EXTREMELY doobified comedian Doug Benson. He invites his fancy pants comedy friends to do stand-up while he sits in the crowd interrupting them with whatever might pop into his head. The last Interruption I went to didn't end until something like 2 in the morning. It's one of the loosest, funniest comedy shows around.

Advanced reservations for this particular edition of the Interupption are now sold out, but there will be a stand-by line. People often make reservations and just don't show up. If you show up instead, you might be able to get inside.

Patton also has some other upcoming shows scheduled including a bunch at Caroline's...

Patton Oswalt is signed to Sub Pop. That makes him music in my book.

Is there anyone on Earth less funny than Patton Oswalt? Ok, maybe Fred Armisen. But besides him?

Posted by SF Hipster | May 8, 2008 7:04 PM

Hey 6:02, clearly you're a moron because this is on the music page.

I feel your pain. It IS SUCH a hardship to ignore the occasional coverage of comedy. Especially with that gun to your head forcing you to read the posts and comment on them. Also, shut up and die.
Thanks.

I hate birbigs with a passion. There's something so middling about him. You have to be average in every way to laugh at his schtick.

Two guys..why I always saw your profile on a millionaire&celebs dating site "LovingRich.com" ? what a u looking for there?

Remove comedy coverage from this website. 90% of people coming here do not care.

Posted by Anonymous | May 8, 2008 11:58 PM

That's an order! Personally, I like a little variety. Sometimes, if there is a post I'm not particularly interested in, I don't read it. It's not that hard.

8:24, it's on the home page, hence that's the problem. I think most people coming here would just like to see it under the Comedy tab and not on the homepage.

I tried to get a job at Chapel Hill Comics. It didnt work out.

bunch of fuckers.

I vote for more comedy on the homepage AND more Neil Diamond coverage. No, seriously. I also vote that most of you are a bunch of babies.

Posted by Beeeeve | May 9, 2008 12:12 PM

I think the comedy updates are convenient on the homepage, primarily b/c I'd rather not click on a separate tab if I don't have to. It's easy enough to scan past these occasional briefs the same way I do the myriad of bands I have no interest in. Plus, some of these niche comics aren't that easy to track via Myspace or their personal websites, unless they're doing huge showcases (like a Reggie Watts). But somehow BKV can find all their hole-in-the-wall performances. Pretty handy.
