Every week, The Tuesday Special devolves from a comedy show into something else entirely, and the last show was not even a comedy show, but an exploration of humanity. This begs the question…do we need comedy at all?

What is THE TUESDAY SPECIAL? It’s a new FREE weekly show at Over the Eight in Williamsburg every Tuesday at 10pm. The show is NOT hosted by Brett Davis, but instead one of his horrible characters. From there, the show can take on any format, but they will certainly make you feel uncomfortable.
