As mentioned, NYC comedian and actress Kristen Schaal (who plays Symphony Space in NYC tonight, 7/24) is moving to Los Angeles, which is sad or all of us, but probably great for her because she's surely moving on to exciting things. On Thursday (7/19), Kristen joined Eugene Mirman, Mike Birbiglia, Kurt Braunholer, John Oliver, Bobcat Goldthwait and musical guests OK GO at the new Williamsburg Park for a giant and free edition of "Pretty Good Friends" where Kristen's pretty good friends, special guest Jon Hamm included, helped wish her goodbye (You may remember Kristen was in Mad Men's first episode). Jon Hamm appeared as the Big Apple, as you can see in the picture above. More pictues from the whole show (Williamburg Park's 2nd-ever show) (it was supposed to be the third), backstage included, below...

Remeber when Bobcat Goldthwait was banging a ridicuously hot 17 year old NIkki Cox. Still hate that dude for that.

OK GO:

They use the sorta antics of a TMBG or Flaming Lips show or whatever, but the songs are so straightforward that it seems rather out of place (or what makes it at all fun).

"HEY! GetGetGetGet GetOverIt!"

Pretty lame chorus, structurally and executionally. I was hoping when I looked up the verse lyrics they'd at least be paired with something that makes that main retort contextually clever, but: Nope!

Lastly: I enjoyed all the really young women up front jumping up and down and screaming like they were seeing The Beatles. That was funny, at least.

this looks like it was a lot of fun

Ok Go is a band with more gimmicks than songs.

"this looks like it was a lot of fun"

YES! If you are a retard with painfully low self esteem!

Kristin rules. No more Daily Show pieces? She was just like Olivia Munn, only funny.

Great pics BV but can I constructively ask why you post so many that are so very similar? There are like 17 images of John Oliver there that are essentially the same shot.

*disregard above criticism in case of tits

"who is this person? she looks weird. why is there an audience there?"

She's the comedian who looks like Chelsea Clinton reflected in a spoon.

Stop with the racist comments! You totally ruin BV with this racist shit.

I find Kristen Schaal completely hilarious and completely adorable.

You win this time, LA.

This looked fun. The Mirman/TMBG last year was also fun.

If you insult people for reasons like "looks weird" or use "nerd" as an insult what can I say? You're an uninteresting person and I hope you improve the world by dying of ball cancer.

Not to be a total cunt, but how do people at these gatherings not look around and think, "wow, we all look the same-and we don't look that good?"

Jon Hamm-he can't lose, even in this yeast-infected scenario.
