WHIPLASH: FREE Comedy Every Monday Night
In New York, there are two options for going to comedy clubs: There are the kind that charge a pint of plasma for a cover, have drink minimums on their $9 drinks made with well liquor that should be used to polish silverware and the comedians who base their routines on not getting laid after they get married. Then there are the places like Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theater, where you have to fight for a folding chair, the beers are cheap and the comics range from David Cross to improv troupes that act out an audience member’s fucked up family stories. Every Monday at UCB, Leo Allen hosts WHIPLASH, a FREE night of comics who are actually funny! Tonight’s line-up is Hannibal Buress, Kurt Braunohler, Marina Franklin and a secret guest who’s on a TV show that may or may not involve parks. Guests in the past include Zach Galifianakis, Janeane Garofalo, Patton Oswald, etc. As a bonus, my buddy from work promises that there are always attractive people in attendance.
