On Friday night, we were fortunate enough to host the first East Coast edition of SideOneDummy Storytellers. A show that LA punk rock label SideOneDummy puts on monthly at its offices. The premise is simple, label co-owner and comedian Joe Sib hosts some comics and a musical guest to come on and tell a story about a topic/theme each night. On our night in the Vintage Lounge at the Gotham Comedy Club, Sib asked the performers, “what band changed your life?” Leaving guests, Jesse Malin, Greg Behrendt, Janeane Garofalo, and Kyle Kinane to tell us their story about music and bands. The answers ranged from bands like The Ramones to Michael Jackson. Hell, even Ray Parker Jr’s “Ghostbusters” theme song hilariously reared its head. Read More

The Laugh Button is putting on three different stand-up comedy shows during Comic Con’s New York Super Week. New York Super week is a week full of fun activities around the city leading up to the New York edition of Comic Con. The Laugh Button has partnered with our pals at Comedy Dynamics and SiriusXM Comedy to help contribute to the awesome week of programming. Over the course of two days, we will host three shows at The Stand.
In the early evening of Saturday, October 4th, we will give the stage to comedian and comic book fan Mike Lawrence for “Days of Future Laughs,” a show so top secret, only Mike knows what to expect. At the midnight hour on the same day, Yannis Pappas will host some of our favorite NY comedians and rising stars – Aaron Berg, Monroe Martin, Crystian Ramirez, Rachel Feinstein, and Gary Gulman. Then, after we all take naps, we reconvene on Sunday night (October 5th) for a total blowout, where Mike Lawrence hosts a murderer’s row of comedians for the final night not to be missed with Big Jay Oakerson, Dan Soder, Janeane Garofalo, Joe List, and Kurt Metzger.
SiriusXM Comedy will be on hand for a live recording, to air during New York Comic Con the week after. Lastly, we must thank Comedy Dynamics for helping us present the entire evening.
