Brooklyn Comedy Festival 1Brooklyn
New York, NY
The butt of many a joke, this week Brooklyn proves that if there's one thing they have a handle on, it's comedy. Founded last year by Ashleigh Walker, Julian Kiani and Chris Nester, the Brooklyn Comedy Festival ups its ante for 2014 with more funny people, bigger venues, and a bounty of after parties. Featuring the various realms of comedy, from sketch and standup to improv, this year’s performers include Michael Che, Lucas Bros, Ted Alexandro, Sasheer Zamata, Sean Patton, Dan Wilbur, Dave Hill, Nikki Glaser, and more. Among the programming you’ll find special fest editions of Friends of Single People, Cheap Date, and First Comes Love, as well as panel discussions, a closing night double-bill blowout at Baby’s All Right, and a wrap party/pig roast on Sunday at Crown Victoria. Check the website for full details, and take note, many of the shows are free.
