We know everyone’s all excited about Stephen Colbert’s late night TV re-debut and they’re trampling their own mothers for a shot at tickets, but before joining the stampede, allow us to remind you that Brooklyn has some late night shows of its own that draw great guests and are free. For instance, The Corrigan Show, which has brought your free shots to see people like Steve Buscemi, Kim Gordon and Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson, is back at Over the Eight (594 Union Avenue) this Sunday with another free lineup of famous interview subjects, highlighted by David Cross.
If you’re unfamiliar with The Corrigan Show, the concept is pretty simple. Veteran character actor Kevin Corrigan, using the built in advantage of being beloved veteran character actor Kevin Corrigan, gets famous people to show up at Over the Eight and talk to him about what they’re up to. It’s just like a normal talk show except it’s in a tiny room that only fits 40 people. This Sunday, if you can be one of the first 40 people to grab a ticket at 6:30pm, you’ll be able to see Corrigan talk with David Cross, Taran Killam and Michael Rapaport.
A look at the IMDB shows that any movies Cross would be promoting have come and gone, so maybe in between talking about his life in Brooklyn, he’ll tell you all about the new sketch show he’s doing with Bob Odenkirk. If you do manage to snag a ticket to the show, you’ll be close enough to ask Cross if he has change for a dollar, but don’t do it, unless you have some time to kill.
