One of the First In-Person Comedy Festivals This Year Will Be in Brooklyn: The Tiny Cupboard Penthouse Comedy Summer Comedy Festival
OK, so Moontower is in September. JFL is going to Cancun in the Fall. Then, there’s a bunch of big time comedy festivals that are counting on 2022 to do their thing in person (Edinburgh Fringe, SF Sketchfest).
Now, with the full tilt sprint of live comedy reopening across the biggest cities in the U.S., one might be wondering if there’s going to be a comedy festival before any of the aforementioned happenings.
Well, Brooklyn’s Tiny Cupboard, which has been holding down local stand-up comedy in Brooklyn, for however long this pandemic has lasted. To mark their run, they’re holding their very own festival in August, with Penthouse Comedy (who has also been very active in doing in-person shows in NYC), that utilizes their rooftop and their indoor space, The Pink Church, for four days.
The festival has been minted as The Tiny Cupboard Penthouse Comedy Summer Comedy Festival (or maybe people will start calling it TCPCSCF?).
Like a festival should, they’ve got a massive line-up that features many of NYC comedy’s best and brightest stand-ups, podcasts, and more. Just take a gander at that flyer and you’ll see what we’re talking about.
Tickets are only $25 for a single day pass and $75 for all four days. Best go get them here.
