NYC had an explosion of outdoor comedy shows throughout the last two years. Starting off with doing stand-up in parks, sometimes acapella without a mic, then shifting to any place that had an outdoor space where could line-up some chairs and a mic and mic stand. One of the most popular and beloved was Kevin Casey White and Kevin O’Brien’s Wacky Shack, held at Central Organic in Bushwick, Brooklyn, NYC.
When the weather permitted for evenings that weren’t freezing, Kevin and Kevin threw up great line-ups and sustained and backyard party vibe that would have crowds standing on the sidewalk looking into the cozy back patio of Central Organic.
We’re thrilled to hear that these two funny Kevins will be bringing back Wacky Shack to Central Organic and keeping it as a weekly, every Wednesday around 8PM starting on Star Wars Day, May 4th. Donations will be accepted.
They haven’t announced their first line-up for their glorious return, but you better bet it’s going to be stacked with NYC’s best (and they won’t have been stuck inside for several months this time). Get more details for Wacky Shack and donate here.
