Ted Leo at How Was Your Week? in February (more by Erik Erikson)
Ted Leo

Julie Klausner's weekly How Was Your Week? podcast, which is often taped at The Bell House, will tape there again on June 27 with special guests Ted Leo and the Pharmacists (Ted was also a guest on the show back in February), Jim Gaffigan, Katie Notopoulous, and other very special guests. Tickets for that show are on sale now, and after its taping, it will be available for free on iTunes, like the rest of the How Was Your Week? podcasts.

Ted Leo, meanwhile, plays in Citizens Arrest at Warsaw on Thursday (6/14) as part of the FFF/Chaos in Tejas showcase at the Northside Festival with Ceremony, Magrudergrind and Royal Headache.

Speaking of comedy shows at the Bell House, the Greg Barris-hosted 'Heart of Darkness' featuring Kristen Schaal, Dave Hill, Jon Glaser, and Mind Warrior Hamilton Morris, with music by The Forgiveness w. Aerial East, Das and Alexandre Tannous, happens at the Brooklyn venue on Saturday (6/16). Tickets for that show are on sale now.

Speaking of Kristen Schaal, she also performs at Kurt Andersen's Kings County show on June 29 at Galapagos with Jessi Klein and Eleanor Friedberger (who plays the Seaport in July). Tickets for that show are on sale now. There's also a Kings County show at The Bell House on June 24 with Wyatt Cenac, Lucy Sexton, Chairlift, and a "A TOP SECRET SPECIAL GUEST". Tickets for that show are on sale now.

Kristen has also been doing warm up shows in advance of her 1-hour taping coming up in San Francisco. She's got two left, and they happen on Tuesday (6/12) and Thursday (6/14) at UCB East. Both are sold out but there will be a standby line for the Thursday show.

In other comedy news, Brooklyn Brewery is hosting a new monthly series called Tom Shillue's Funny Story. The first of those goes down this month on June 21 with Tom Shillue, Bobby Tisdale, John Mulaney, and more TBA. Tickets are $10 and include a free beer.

"Are these heart of darkness shows fun? Never been"

YES. HOD is probably the most fun I've had at a show in NYC in ages. Better than just stand-up. An awesome experience.
