Here's news of a couple of shows happening in the Big Apple this month that we here at 404 Funny would definitely go and see if we weren't 3,400 miles away.
First off, our good friends Skinny Bitch Jesus Meeting have gone and booked another hideously expensive run at the Edinburgh Fringe in August without the merest thought as to how they're going to afford it.
So, if you're in NYC, please help them out by going along to see them at 2010 Sketchfest NYC! at the Upright Citizens Brigade, 307 W. 26th Street, on Thursday June 10th at 11pm.
Alternatively, why not try Mr and Mrs Bruce Vain’s Free Booze & Comedy Hour at the Shetler Theatre on the 12th Floor (!) of 244 W 54th St., which is between 7th & 8th Avenues, this Saturday, June 12th, at 9.30pm. Tickets for the latter show can be had for $8 online from http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/114051 (the booze may be free but the comedy ain't, my friends).
If you're in Cincinnati or Washington DC, please visit the SBJM website for details of shows in late June and throughout July.
And if you can't make it to one of the above shows, you could always donate a dollar or five to their fighting fund here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/sbjm/skinny-bitch-jesus-meeting-goes-to-edinburgh. (Gosh, we wish we had friends who gave us that sort of money.)
Liam McEneaney's weekly show Tell Your Friends! has become one of NYC's most talked-about comedy nights - and now it's being made into a movie! Eeek!!
