Last week, I was sitting on the train at 1:30am, reading the last chapter of a book by Linda Ellerbee (you may remember her as the host of Nick News). A dude sat down next to me and I could feel him staring at my book. “Can I offer you a bookmark?” he asked. I said ok, and he slipped a tiny piece of cardstock advertising a free comedy night into my book (pictured at left). I said, “That kid doesn’t look very excited about this.” He assured me that the kid’s face was the best part of the photo.
But I was focused on my book and my brain was fried from working and then waiting a half hour of the L Train. I failed to ask this guy who performs there, if he was a comic or why people should go to his night over any others. But I’m willing to endorse comedy nights with subtle guerrilla marketing campaigns and the flier/bookmark does promise comedians from SNL and Comedy Central. So really, you got nothing to lose. Check out Not Friday for FREE Comedy every Monday night at Aces and Eights. There will be something to laugh at.
