Art School: A Cross-Genre, Multi-Disciplinary, Post-Conceptual Comedy Show
April 8 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$8 – $10
Join us for the latest exhibition of Art School: A Cross-Genre, Multi-Disciplinary, Post-Conceptual Comedy Show. Hosted by Tim Barnes (Comedy Central), Jordan Mendoza (Comedy Central), and Joanna Solotaroff (HBO’s 2 Dope Queens, Sooo Many White Guys) and joined by New York’s best, boundary-pushing comedy acts. This month’s guests include: Benito Skinner (Carolines on Broadway), Johnny Butler (Grammy Award Winner), Jamie Graham (Dixon Place) and Dom O Briggs (MSG Poetry Slam).
Just like actual art school, this show is all about experimenting. It’s a highly-curated, comedy journey that incorporates all kinds of creative mediums: stand-up, storytelling, performance art, dance, magic – we’ve even had a fully immersive art installation!
The show will make you say, “Is it comedy though?” and “Oppressive but, like, in the best way” and “Hmm.”
