2005_08_artscolbert.jpgObviously Labor Day is the weekend to kick back and squeeze out the final drops of summer before retiring your Nantucket Reds in favor of muted browns and tweeds. Obviously. And obviously the last thing you ought to do on a weekend such as this is put any effort into anything. However, Gothamist highly recommends you take action as soon as possible to snag the now-on-sale tickets to see Elliot Kalan’s interview with Stephen Colbert at Juvie Hall. The show will take place on September 9th but tickets are available and selling quickly now at SmartTix. Long live Mr. Noblet!

If you are planning on staying in town this week, the latest installment of How to Kick People will be Wednesday at 7:30pm at Mo Pitkin’s [34 Ave A between 2nd and 3rd St., $8]. The Rejection Show’s Jon Friedman, comedian Ophira Eisenberg and author Jonathan Ames will be there, as well as music from Jesse Hartman.

On Thursday night, check out “Farahnakian & Flynn present Ahimsa”. This evening of improv begins with a set from SNL writer Liz Cackowski and her scene partner Kristen Schaal, whose ability to create original characters has always impressed Gothamist. They are followed by improv master and PIT founder Ali Farahnakian and Dion Flynn. [The PIT, 154 W. 29th St., $5]
