BackFat Variety: “A Highly-Curated Sampling of the Brooklyn Comedy Scene”

July 27 @ 8:00 pm - 10:15 pm

| Free

BackFat Variety returns Thursday, July 27! BackFat is a free comedy show that’s been touted in Time Out, The New York Times, and profiled in Brooklyn Magazine for good reason: it’s a not-too-long, highly curated sampling of the Brooklyn comedy scene, and has been drawing crowds since 2012. The July lineup is…

ROB CANTRELL (as seen on FX’s Totally Biased, The Colbert Report, Last Comic Standing)
MIKE BROWN (as seen on MTV)
CHANEL ALI (as seen on Seeso’s Night Train)
ANDREW CASERTANO (as seen on Animal Planet)
and DEWEY LOVETT (Winner of The Standup Showdown at The People’s Improv Theater)

The show is hosted by EMILY WINTER (writer for Fusion, TV Land) and LARRY MANCINI (from the punk band The Tracys). BackFat is a free event (it does accept cash donations to pay performers), so no ticket is required, though it’s recommended to arrive by 8:15 to nab a seat. The show starts promptly at 8:30.
