We just wrote about the Sixth Annual Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival, and here's another comedy festival and this one hits next week: The Brooklyn Comedy Festival. It's being held at a variety of venues in the general Williamsburg area from August 19 - 24.
According to the festival organizers, it will include a mix of sketch, improv, and standup and features some strong local comedians, such as Chris Gethard (who traveled to Lollapalooza with us just a week ago), The Lucas Bros., Dan St. Germaine, Calise Hawkins, Mike Lawrence, Nimesh Patel, and more. Schedule is at the BCF website and full performer list and show dates are listed below.
Happy (almost) Hanukkah! It begins tomorrow night (Saturday, 12/8) and in addition to gathering 'round the table for dreidels to play with and latkes to eat, there are plenty of events in NYC that you can attend to celebrate. Jesse Zook Mann and Evan Kleinman's film, Punk Jews, is premiering in NYC next week, and there are a bunch of shows like the Sephardic Music Festival, Matisyahu's 'Festival of Light' show at Terminal 5, and many others. And of course Yo La Tengo play all eight nights of Hanukkah at Maxwell's in Hoboken (12/8-15). YLT always bring out interesting guests to open these shows, but more on that soon (meanwhile leave your guesses in the comments).
In addition to the previously announced Hanukkah shows, there's also a comedy show at UCB East on Saturday (12/8). The show is dubbed Mark Spitz's Hanukkah Spectacularah and the event description reads:
What's a Spectacularah? It's like a Christmas special, but for Jews! Well, it's not just for Jews, but it's certainly not for Nazis . There will be characters, prizes, drinking games, and - most importantly - Jews performing stand up comedy!The lineup includes Barry Rothbart (The Tonight Show, Conan), Josh Rabinowitz (Just For Laughs), Adam Newman (John Oliver's NY Stand Up Show), and Adam Lowitt (Just For Laughs, John Oliver's NY Stand Up Show, The Daily Show) and Mark Spitz is hosting. Tickets are on sale now.
Matisyahu just released a new video for his new Hanukkah song. Check that out below...
