Pick of the Day: Poppycock 6/29 (in NYC)
Not only are venues and shows coming back in the realm of live comedy, but new things are springing up from the ruins of the pandemic that we are very much excited to see.
The exquisite Slipper Room, which hosted so many beloved comedy and variety shows, not only survived, but is back at a robust schedule several nights out of the week. In fact, they’re about to have a brand new show, that ought to be high class affair with the appropriate name, Poppycock.
Hosted by Matt Richards, it’ll be an intimate night of stand-up that will feature NYC comedy’s best (and handpicked by those in the know and not just the “very best” in a general hackneyed sense). The line-up for this coming Tues. 6/29 with doors at 8PM ET will have Rosebud Baker, Dulce Sloan, Jared Freid, and, just added, The Lucas Brothers. Also, this will be a Yondr event and you’ll have to leave your phone in a protected bag, so you don’t have to be distracted from any sort of notifications throughout the show.
Tickets for Poppycock start at $20 (with a $20 minimum at the bar) and you can (and very much should) go get them here.
