Not Friday is FREE Comedy on Mondays

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

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.

After years of denial, Kiley has finally admitted to baring a striking resemblance to Velma from Scooby Doo. Instead of traveling in a van hunting ghosts, she prefers wandering on foot in search of tacos, cheap beer, and fake birds. Growing up in Portland, Kiley enjoyed the balance of urban and green spaces. Then she spent her four years at Ithaca College, and found herself craving more sprawling asphalt in her life. So she moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where most of the buildings look like they're about to collapse. Kiley's favorite activities include: getting lost, crafting, sewing, biking, and geeking out at museums. Her love of taxidermy probably makes her a terrible vegetarian, but she doesn't care.
