The Way Station presents I Got a Bad Feeling About This . . .2 Year Anniversary Show! on Sunday, August 17 from 7-9:30PM. Comedian Jordon Ferber, AKA Han Shlomo, and Sarah Shanok host the best comedy and music show in the galaxy! Break out the pan galactic gargle blasters and lets have a party! We are definitely firing up the Hyperdrive on this one! Their midichlorian count is already on its way up!

I Got a Bad Feeling About This is named for the famous line uttered in every Star Wars film, and known by even fair-weather fans. Lots could go wrong, but the force was with them! This monthly comedy event caters to the unique tastes of the factually critical, pop culture savvy Way Station regulars, an audience as eclectic as the Mos Eisley cantina. Jordon seeks out Sci-Fi-sensitive comedians, and Sarah secures unconventional musicians to accent the sets at the Prospect Heights watering hole.

Cumbia collective Wawa Wasi is a favorite, featuring musicians David Cornejo, Pony Tinajero, Daniel Siles, Andres Marin, Pablo Siles and Maciej Lewandowski. The band became an instant hit after performing their Cumbia version of “The Imperial March,” commonly known as Darth Vader’s Theme, now a show standard. Wawa Wasi also covers Linkin Park, Gorillaz, Dick Dale, the Offspring and The White Stripes, in addition to their own original songs, played on innovative instruments including wooden boxes and animal bones. In addition to The Way Station, Wawa Wasi has appeared at Goodbye Blue Monday and Don Pedro.

More about Jordon Ferber
Jordon Ferber started his stand-up comedy career in 1999 at the age of 21. While majoring in Film at Occidental College he became a regular host at The Garage in Los Angeles. For the next two years he honed his skills and ultimately decided to pursue stand-up in the big city, returning to New York in 2001. As a native New Yorker, he had no trouble getting on the circuit, and has since performed in almost every club in Manhattan, including Carolines, the Gotham Comedy Club and Madison Square Garden. His unique delivery and ironic take on life is always funny, and has made him a favorite on the NY scene. He produced a weekly stand up comedy showcase called Straight Up Stand Up for 4 years at Zinc Bar in the West Village, and currently produces and hosts comedy and music showcase, “I Got a Bad Feeling About This . . .” at The Way Station in Brooklyn. He has been seen on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” and “The Restaurant” and is a regular on WOR’s “The Joey Reynolds Show.” Ferber was also featured in the 2006 New York Underground Comedy Festival’s Emerging Comics Contest.

More about Sarah Shanok
Sarah Shanok is a Brooklyn bartender and freelance writer, who really digs the nightlife and likes to boogie. She recently published a music review in Ladygunn Magazine, and her short story, “Cutting Christmas” was included in 2013 book, Mother’s Day at the Orphanage: Stories Without a Home. She has also written for Encore Magazine, New York Press, Our Town, and West Side Spirit. She managed indie rock band The Telephones for many years, booking the band at local music venues including, Mercury Lounge, The Knitting Factory, and Arlene’s Grocery. They played really great music for drunk strangers, and she helped. She is very funny, but has stage fright, so now she works behind the scenes to help others get heard. Sarah produces monthly comedy and music show, “I Got a Bad Feeling About This,” at Brooklyn bar The Way Station, where she also passes the hat for donations between sets and reminds people not to take money out!
