Did you miss the Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival at the Bell House again? Yeah, we're still bummed about it too. What is that you say? There are things to be excited about other than WTF with Marc Maron? Here's a few that we're pumped about:
- Now that Louie has finished season two on FX you'll be happy to know that you can still get your fix of self-deprecating humor from the man himself. The Bell House is hosting two nights of Louis CK this weekend and tickets go on sale Friday morning at 10 a.m.
- Aziz Ansari will be talking with Kelefa Sanneh at the SVA Theater this Saturday. Unfortunately Jean-Ralphio probably won't be with him.
- Fred Armisen, David Cross, Carrie Brownstein, and Johnathan Krisel will premiere the new seasons of Portlandia and The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret the New York Comic Con on October 16th.
- Asssscat has been at UCB every Sunday night and that will continue all of October. (Their East Village outpost just opened, too.)
- Julie Klausner, author of the totally enjoyable I Don't Care About Your Band: What I Learned from Indie Rockers, Trust Funders, Pornographers, Faux-Sensitive Hipsters, and Other Guys I've Dated , will be hosting How Was Your Week? live on October 20th at The Bell House.
- Tell Your Friends at Lolita every Tuesday is still awesome. It's cheap and famous comedy folks like to just show up.
- Weird Al is going to be at Beacon Theater on October 23rd.
- The New York Comedy Festival is November 9th to the 13th. The line up is okay: Wanda Sykes will probably talk about the mastectomy she just had, Kathy Griffin will say something stupid (hopefully it won't be about Bristol Palin) writers from SNL and the Onion, Sarah Silverman, Michael Ian Black, Norm MacDonald, Tracy Morgan, Bill Maher, Ricky Gervais, Louis CK, and more. But somehow it seems like we've seen it all before.
And did you know Gene Hackman has his own comedy show now? Well, sort of.
