Tonight I’m producing and performing in a fun show - you should check it out if you’re free…
Showcasey Jones — Adult show & tell comedy show is back… Saturday, October 11th at 8pm at OVER THE EIGHT in Williamsburg.
Bring your weird family photos, show us how many flips you can do in a row, showoff the tattoo your uncle gave you at last year’s family retreat! Anything crazy, cooky, strange or insane… and the best of the best will win $25 cash and bragging rights as one of the weirdest people in NYC Last week’s winner brought a jar filled with cat parts - and he went head-to-head with a couple guys who modified a baby doll to smoke from a bong.
Plus, live stand up comedy from some of NYC’s best - Sue Smith (Best Week Ever), Andrew Short (Underbelly), Lukas Kaiser (Spike TV), Correy Reppond, Gabe Pacheco (Story Pirates) & more!
Over The Eight - 594 Union Ave, Brooklyn, NY
Alexander Graham Bell invented the phone many years ago - possibly more than ten. And when he was making the first phone call, he asked his community to submit short scripts for that very first call. As we all famously know, the winning contribution that ended up being the first phone call was “Hey, I have a telephone too.” (That phrase having been inscribed on the backs of telephones up until this day)
But what many people don’t know is that there were several rejected submissions. Now, it was common practice in Graham Bell’s era to burn the winning submissions. So we don’t have any of them.
I know the title of this post is misleading. You thought you’d get to see some fun scripts that didn’t quite make it. Well, you know, why do you get your hopes up still when you’ve been rejected so many times? This is why you’re not going to make it as a physical therapist. Ok?
I really think you should take that manager’s gig at Long John Silvers. We’ll talk tonight.
