This weekend we put on three of our most exciting live comedy events to date. Three shows in two days. We teamed up with our pals at The Stand to book a solid lineup of some of NYC best working comedians (even a drop in from an LA guy). They all went down during Comic Con’s New York Super Week which is the week of live programming leading up to NY Comic Con next weekend at the Javits Center in NYC.
SiriusXM Comedy was on hand to tape these events which will air on their comedy channels beginning this Thursday and run through Comic Con (more on that in a second). Comedy Dynamics also came into help us produce the shows and we couldn’t be more grateful for our pals helping us out.
The first show of the weekend was the brainchild of Mike Lawrence, the Nerd of Mouth podcaster hosted “Days of Future Laughs.” Mike invited his comedian friends who included Dan Soder, Christi Chiello, Evan Williams, and Jared Logan on stage. After each of the comedian’s spots, Lawrence sat down with them to discuss nerdy topics like comic books, movies, cartoons, D&D, and wrestling. The midnight show brought in some heavy hitters as Yannis Pappas hosted Aaron Berg, Monroe Martin, Crystian Ramirez, and Gary Gulman. Adrienne Iapalucci even showed up for a guest spot. After some brief sleep, we all rejoined at The Stand for the final stand-up show of the weekend as Mike Lawrence once again hosted some killers in Dan Soder, Janeane Garofalo, Joe List, and Kurt Metzger. At the last minute, LA’s Byron Bowers did a guest spot.
The night was terrific and we couldn’t say enough great things about the weekend. Special shoutouts to the readers and fans of this site, the staff at The Stand – Patrick, David, and Chris for helping organize, TommyK and (especially) Christine for helping iron out on-site glitches. Gil and Aaron from SiriusXM for getting us on the airwaves. Brian from Comedy Dynamics for the support and kickass pens, all the comedians, and most definitely comedian Mike Lawrence for putting together one and hosting two shows for us! Y’all are the best.
LISTEN LIVE! The shows will air on SiriusXM back to back, premiering on Raw Dog Comedy Hits, Channel 99 this Thursday (10/9) at 3pm ET right after Ron & Fez. They will replay a few times over the NY Comic Con weekend in case you missed anything. Friday at 10pm ET, Saturday at 10am ET, and Sunday at 4pm ET. Mark the calendars.
