If you love late night comedy but are wondering why the hell Carson Daly is still famous, we’ve got a show for you! Scott Rogowski, the self-proclaimed “Hostess with the leastess” brings you “Running Late,” a comedy show in the style of late-night talk. His show next Thursday is going to be the first one to take place in Brooklyn and will feature a couple of pretty funny people from a couple of funny New York institutions: Rachel Dratch of SNL and Alex Karpovsky of Girls.
For real though, why sift through 30-90 minutes of sort-of relatable humor when you can grab the best parts live? Rachel Dratch has been hilarious for at least 15 years since she first hit SNL audiences over the head with that baby arm of hers, and Alex Karpovsky is, well, kind of becoming a big deal. You might even recognize him on the street at this point. Though, thanks to Girls, you also might just mistake him for someone you once slept with.
Also slated to be present are afro’d Brooklyn-native/comedy weirdo (in a good way) Reggie Watts and bowtie sports guy Ken Rosenthal. Grab a ticket here and then be prepared to learn the secrets of what it’s like to make out with David Mamet’s daughter.
