Starting in 1982, the city of Atlanta threw an annual party called “Freaknik” which essentially became the largest black spring break party in the country. The party became so big and wild that the city shut it down for good in 1996, but we’re all in luck, because comedians Andy Sandford, Noah Gardenswartz and Steve Forrest are bringing Freaknik back, and they’re bringing it to Long Island City! “Comedy Freaknik” will be a lot like the original Freaknik, except it’s going to happen once a month, and it will be a comedy show hosted by three white guys. That’s basically the ONLY difference.
Hosted by Teresa Sheffield and featuring Reggie Edwards & Dean David

NYC Talent Show is the world’s greatest open stage and a real New York City Tradition. It’s a decade old art performance show started at Bowery Poetry Club by Diane O’Debra and Victor Varnado where anyone can walk on stage whether they are a first time performer or a seasoned veteran and get treated like a star. A star that leaves the stage when bellman’s bell is rung telling them that their time on stage is over.
Now exclusively streamed live on Camfrog, you can come down and entertain thousands every week or watch everyone having fun at watchhavingfun.com
Performers on the show have included Kristen Schaal, Hannibal Buress, Jim Gaffigan, and Jonathan Aimes.
