NTDVH_Aug2014WEB

Brunch is for loud idiots with children named “Ryder” and “Aiden”. Outdoor movie screenings are a hellish, passive-aggressive struggle for lawn territory with no lumbar support. The real way to relax in New York this summer is to head down to Nat Towsen’s Downtown Variety Hour at Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, East Village, where there are no rich doors and poor doors (because all of the doors are poor doors).

This month’s show features:

Sasheer Zamata
* Cast member at NBC’s Saturday Night Live
* Co-star of Pursuit of Sexiness
* Hilarious standup comedian

Box Brown
* New York Times bestselling cartoonist
* Author of Andre the Giant: Life and Legend
* Performing a live comics reading with archival video!

Baratunde R. Thurston
* CEO/co-founder of Cultivated Wit
* Author of How To Be Black
* Former head of Digital at The Onion

Downtown History
* Learn about the city you inhabit while laughing and drinking

NYC Trivia
* Answer questions and win prizes from our local business sponsors!
* This month’s prizes: Pizza and comic books

$5
All ages
If you’re under 16, just wrap your entire body in a brown paper bag and have someone else carry you in.

Sponsored by Two Boots, Forbidden Planet NYC, and Prestone Printing
