Cornelia Comedy Festival Returns

John Morrison

Two guesses where this picture was taken.

Last year our tenured professor of standup Mr. John Morrison launched the first-ever Cornelia Street Cafe Comedy Festival to great success (at least that’s what he tells us). This week he and his co-conspirators at New York Underground Comedy Festival return to diabolical form with three-nights of one-off comedy, determined to outdo even their own appraisal of success.

Make that two nights, unless you’re lucky and proactive enough to’ve already reserved a seat for John Oliver & Wyatt Cenac‘s now sold-out Monday night show. So let’s talk about Tuesday and Wednesday nights: Tuesday at 830pm we proffer Todd Barry & Friends. I’m sure you know Todd Barry, right? He of multiple Comedy Central Presents presentations, stalwart Louis CK compatriot, and part-time thespian singing backup for Mickey Rourke in The Wrestler? Todd leads off Tuesday night’s show, alongside the hilarious and lovely (rare combination?) Rachel Feinstein and a slew of likeminded Morrison Motel Regulars.

Wednesday night at 830 we fulfill our obligation to old-fashioned civic engagement with Politics: Left, Right, and Wrong. In the Left corner, we bring you superbly funny and esoterically named Myq Kaplan, recently voted too funny for Last Comic Standing. On the Right, for your delight and/or revulsion we present Stephen Kruiser, a Tea Partying animal loosed behind enemy lines in the West Village. They’re joined by still more comedian-geniuses from our stable of comic genius.

Will Toddy barry unassumingly charm you to tears? Will Morrison strangle Kruiser in a bench-clearing backstage brawl? One and only one way to find out. Tickets on sale while they last, call our Semi-Automatic Ticket-Selling Hotline at (212) 989-9319 for reservations. And, while you’re at it, visit the Cafe’s stunning new website at http://www.corneliastreetcafe.com! Alright!

A taste of Todd:
