The importance of a stalwart, landmark weekly comedy show in a comedy scene is so vital. It acts as a linchpin for the scene itself, a platform for deserving talent to brightly shine, and a very fun lab for the bunch that takes on the hallowed duties of hosting such an endeavor. Names such as The Meltdown, Butterboy, Comedy at the Knit, Hot Tub, and Put Your Hands Together might come to mind in this regard (feel free take a moment to get nostalgic about any and all of those shows if you were ever in attendance).
Vulture is now looking to join those ranks by embarking their very own curated weekly live comedy show Pretty Major at the revered Brooklyn stage that is Union Hall every Tuesday at 7PM ET, starting on Sept. 14th. A fantastic cadre of Marcia Belsky, Jay Jurden, and Zach Zimmerman will be presiding over as hosts and, already, we have a pretty good feeling about this.
Just look at the month of line-ups they’ve announced and you’ll know you’re in for a treat of their favorites of the best of NYC comedy.
9/14: Please Don’t Destroy, Taylor Garron, Kylie Brakeman, Sydnee Washington, Francesca D’Uva, and more!
9/21: Jaye McBride, Larry Owens, Jes Tom, Devon Walker, and more!
9/28: Catherine Cohen, Nore Davis, Fareeha Khan, Mary Neely, Martin Urbano, and more!
10/5: Zack Zucker, Spike Einbinder, Grace Kuhlenschmidt, Chris Gethard, and more!
Tickets are only $12 and you can (and really, really should) go get them here. They’ll likely sell out pretty quick.
FYI, to out of towners that Vulture’s own Jesse David Fox knows and loves:
FYI: Union Hall is handling the booking. HOWEVER, if you are an LA comedian I know and you're going to be in town or a SURPRISE DROP-IN type, please please please reach out to me. Love, Jesse https://t.co/chis8DNXkG
