She’s here to teach you a lesson for making fun of the 90s

So, what are you doing this weekend? Got anything big planned? Oh wait, before you think about the answer to that, figure out what you’re doing tonight, since it just wouldn’t be right to forget all about Thursday. After all, it does so much for you, like uhhh…be the day before Friday. Which come think of it isn’t all that great. Still! Here’s some fun things to do that have been found on the Brokelyn Events Calendar, so go out and do one and make your Thursday a great one. (more…)

The Brooklyn Comedy Festival is upon us, and you might be forgiven for thinking, “Hey, aren’t we living the Brooklyn Comedy Festival every day?” Well yes in a sense we are, but who are we to look an entire comedy festival gift horse in the mouth, especially when it means stumbling into a number of bars means a chance to see some of the city’s best comics all performing together, including in some shows that usually only happen in Manhattan.

Last year, we were privilged to be able to see 19 of Brooklyn’s best comedians jump on stage for five minutes at a time at the world’s first Macaulay Culkin Show Summer Comedy Fest. Of course, that was last year, and everyone knows that the summer is made for sequels. Lucky for us then that yet another Avengers-like lineup of Brooklyn comedians is converging on Shea Stadium this weekend for the Macaulay Culkin Show Summer Comedy Fest 2, another star-studded comedy Event. With any luck it’ll avoid Age of Ultron‘s missteps, particularly the way they handle the use of Black Widow. (more…)
