Get your tickets and head over the Bell House in Gowanus for 50 First Jokes hosted by John F. O’Donnell. Reaching its sixth birthday, this annual event is a must for any comedy nerd (take no offense, I am a comedy nerd myself.) The premise is simple: O’Donnell invites 50 of his comedian friends to come and tell their first joke of the year. More than a normal comedy club night, though, the event does double duty as a meet and greet for young comedians, and allows the audience a look into the process of how a joke is conceived and how it evolves.
Tickets are $12 at the door, but get them in advance here for a $2 discount.
