As The Name Suggests, “The Empire Biscuit Comedy Festival” Will Host a Comedy Festival at a Biscuit Shop


Though we had not thought of this question previously, it’s definitely worth asking now, “Wouldn’t three nights of live comedy and biscuits be lovely?”

Empire Biscuit in NYC, a dining establishment that pretty much deals in just biscuits, will try their hand at something way outside the biscuit wheelhouse by hosting three nights of a comedy festival.

With the line-up they’ve got, it looks like they’ll be having a pretty good time over those few days.

So far, at the Empire Biscuit Comedy Festival will be:

Liza Treyger
Alingon Mitra

Mark Normand
