Famed bearded New York comic Dan St. Germain is bringing his stand up to Union Hall tonight (12/16). He’s truly redefined the comedy hustle, performing at every venue from The Stand to Conan in the past few months. Now, he’s showcasing his talents in his home turf and bringing some talented friends along with him. Joining the “Spooktacular” is none other than Brooks Wheelan (SNL), Jared Logan (Comedy Central), Kevin Barnett (Sleepwalk With Me), Jacqueline Novak (fresh off her new album “Quality Notions”), and comedy duo Team Submarine (Chicago Sketchfest, NPR, UCB). Get tickets now before they’re all gone!
Speaking of scary comedy, Eliot Glazer is hosting his Haunting Renditions show at The Bell House tonight. Hear Glazer transform quotidian pop melodies into sweeping ballads, right before your very eyes! Tonight he’s doing holiday songs, natch. But that’s not all — tonight he’s also joined by none other than his sister, Broad City‘s Ilana Glazer (who just did two sold-out shows at the same venue); also singing with the duo is Milk of RuPaul’s Drag Race. The best part? Tickets are still available. For now at least.
If you still need more laughs tonight, check out Rhett Miller‘s second annual Holiday Extravaganza show at City Winery tonight. It’s a stacked lineup, featuring Dave Hill, Wyatt Cenac, Jen Kirkman (who performed at Cenac’s ‘Night Train’ this week), and more. Tickets are still available. In addition, Kirkman has been playing shows all week around the city, including several upcoming nights at The Stand. Get tickets to her shows at The Stand on Wednesday (12/17), and Thursday (12/18), and Sunday (12/21).
Finally, coming up later this week, don’t miss everyone’s favorite nerd Chris Gethard perform with all his favorite comedic oddities at “Chris Gethard Fucking Loves Weirdos,” coming to Union Hall this Saturday, December 20. This show features Shannon O’Neill (UCB, Broad City), stand up comedians Elsa Waithe and Dan Licata, and Connor O’Malley (Late Night with Seth Meyers). Tickets are on sale now.
