Got e-mail from them saying they were doing New Year's Eve.
Sounded good as a Comedy Club is often our choice for NYE.
And being in Queens was a big plus. Shorter, safer trip home.
The price was one of the highest of all the clubs in NYC.
Kind of odd given that it's in LIC and not Times Square.
But we were told that it would be featuring SNL's Cher Oteri (who didn't work cheap) and a $50 bottle of champagne per table.
Well, the very first thing Cher said when she got on stage was 'I don't do standup".
While it's not written in stone that comedy clubs must be all stand up acts, it's pretty much a given unless it is specified that it will be sketch or Improv.
Cheri’s sketch was as boring as can be. I’d have to even say it was just stupid.
The “$50 bottle of champagne” was actually a 375ML bottle that retails in the store for $26.
Most of the other acts were pretty poor also.
This is the saddest part.
The people there (owners, managers and workers) are absolutely delightful!
You feel good the moment you walk in. They are so friendly.
Unfortunately, they also think they’re funny and they perform *there* regularly.
To the best of my knowledge, they don’t perform elsewhere.
And my guess would be because they wouldn’t get the gig.
Carmen Lynch was the final act and she saved the evening.
She was very funny. And after the show she spent time with my wife and I and she was as delightful to chat with as she was entertaining on stage.
So, a big thanks to her!
But otherwise, $250 for a really mediocre show is just not something I can let pass without comment.
