Popped Collar Comedy Show (FREE)
Nov 24, 2018 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pmFree
About a year ago I asked if I could start a comedy show at the cafe on my block. A few hours before showtime, me and some friends rolled a bunch of tires down the street for a makeshift stage. And it worked. There have been over sixty(!) shows, and I’m psyched about every lineup I put together.
NO COVER NO DRINK MIN. All ages are welcome. Beer and wine bar
Host- Whitney Chanel
Whitney is an up and coming comic who tells it like it is! You can catch her railing against political correctness all around the city and at her show at Nabe Harlem Restaurant and Lounge.
J.P. McDade is a standup comedian who has performed at various comedy clubs, bars, and small theaters around New York and across the country.

In addition to writing for this web series, he has appeared onscreen in several others.

In New York, J.P. is a regular at Stand Up New York and Caroline’s and appears at other comedy clubs like The Stand and The Standing room, as well as independent shows, such as his free weekly show at Lucky Jack’s called Too Many Cooks.

He also made his television debut on Comedy Central’s “Roast Battle II.” In 2017 he joined the writing staff of truTV’s Comedy Knockout, in which he has appeared multiple times.
