Being on the rise from working your way up the ladder of any comedy scene is one very admirable thing. It’s a whole other thing to be so on the rise that you can throw a three day comedy festival in Brooklyn to celebrate your birthday. Then again, Niles Abston has honed his comedy chops tirelessly and built such a following that he will be doing exactly that at the Bushwick Public House in Brooklyn this week.
Coined as Niles Abston’s Basement Fest, Niles will be taking over the space for three nights from Thurs. Feb. 17th-Sat. Feb. 19th and hosting a live podcast recording of Niles Abston’s Big A$$ House Party, the beloved bodega comedy show, Peaches and Cream, This Week Sucks Tonight (voted Phoenix, Arizona’s NUMBER ONE live comedy show), and taping an hour set all himself.
Here’s the whole schedule:
2/17 @ 7:30PM ET & 10PM ET: Niles Abston’s Big A$$ House Party: A live podcast, comedy, music, and film experience hosted by Niles Abston
@ 7:30PM ET: Peaches and Cream Comedy Show: Hosted by Lili Michelle and Joey Dardano, Brooklyn’s wildest stand up show comes to Basement Fest!
