Hey comedy fan!
Running a comedy club is hard work. When you’re running around picking up drink orders, keeping your social media game on point, and making sure every caller gets their reservation in, sometimes we don’t give our fans as many updates as we’d like to. But lately, we’ve gotten back on track, and we’ve got awesome news to share.
First off, let’s talk about our show scene this past week. We had a ton of special guests. Last Tuesday night, we had actor and comic Godfrey grace our stage. Godfrey has appeared on BET, VH1, Comedy Central, and feature films like "Soul Plane" & "Zoolander." We also had comedian and actress Jessica Kirson, whose television appearances include NBC’s "Last Comic Standing," "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," and “The View." We also welcomed Emmy-award winning writer and producer Judy Gold and America’s Got Talent runner-up Tom Cotter.
Monday and Saturday night we were lucky to have actor and stand-up comic Judah Friedlander as a special guest, who you probably recognize as the writer with the funny hats from 30 Rock. We’re excited for Judah’s new book, “If the Raindrops United: Drawings and Cartoons.” It doesn’t come out until October (Aw man!) but you can pre-order it on Amazon.
Oh, and Amy Schumer stopped by July 6th for a star-studded show with Judah Friedlander and Greer Barnes. Amy’s first feature film, Trainwreck, comes out THIS Friday! So, if you need us, we’ll be at the movies. Yes, all day! Genius needs time to settle in (at least, that’s what we’ll tell our bosses.)
So that was our night-life. As for the daytime, when we haven’t been running around making sure the club looks spiffy and beautiful for our nightly shows, we’ve had two groups of NYC camp kids & counselors come in for comedy workshops. Kids got to try out their joke-telling skills on our stage before getting the chance to see Comedian Neko White do a private performance. Neko, for his part, proved himself if he hasn’t already - if you can handle kid hecklers, you can do it all.
So that’s us - we’re busy, busy, busy! But what about you? We love hearing from fans. Don’t forget to hit us up on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, & Google Plus. If you’re not already following us on Instagram, make sure you check out the #instacontest we just unveiled - just a few simple steps and you could be on your way to winning two FREE tickets… and drinks!
Until next time,
The Stand Up NY Team
