Pig Pile

Pig Pile is a monthly variety showcase hosted by Nick Maritato and improv powerhouse Priest and the Beekeeper. Each month is a mix of stand up, improv, sketch, and videos. You never know what’s going to happ—ehh… actually you can expect comedy. We’re pretty consistent when it comes to comedy. Also the show has literally nothing to do with pigs, so don’t expect pigs. Though we would never turn one away. Actually that may be against some city code. So you know what: no pigs, just comedy. Let’s just stick to comedy.

If the little angel and devil on your shoulders ever hung out without you, became best friends, and started their own podcast, it would probably sound a lot like Mormon and the Meth-Head.  A former Mormon and a former Meth-Head  come together to form an equally wholesome and horrific duo.  Vulture calls them “your typical pals who tour as stand-ups together, share a storied past of social isolation, and love each other in a “You’re the best friend I’ve been looking for my whole life” way.”
 
They are indeed an unlikely pair. They have led two completely different lives. While Aaron was stopping strangers on the streets of Milan to teach them about Joseph Smith, Jessa was teaching dudes how to keister meth in Arby’s bathrooms across Portland. In their respective routines, they each tackle topics like love, sex, drugs, and alcohol, but with polar opposite perspectives. Audiences get to see their world through Aaron’s naive, innocent eyes as well as through Jessa’s bleary, bloodshot ones.
 
A teen mom-turned-meth-addict-turned comedian, Jessa Reed tells raw and candid stories about about her past and her new life as a homeschooling housewife trying to blend in with the normal people. Her honesty is shocking, inspirational and not for the faint of heart. Jessa has been seen at clubs and festivals around the country, and made her stunning television debut last year on Comedy Central’s “This Is Not Happening.” Then Epix aired a brilliant episode on her story on their late night stand-up series “Unprotected Sets.”

Once adored by mothers everywhere, Aaron Woodall is a nice young man coming to grips with a dirty, cynical world. As he finds out that love isn’t real, God is dead, and beer doesn’t even taste very good, Aaron effervescently shares his disillusions with a sense of wide-eyed excitement. Aaron was one of Team Coco’s Top Ten Comics To Watch at last year’s New York Comedy Festival and his jokes have been seen on FOX, Hulu, Fusion, and Epix. His first special is streaming now on Dry Bar Comedy.

The Muppet Christmas Carol: Live Reading and Sing Along at The Creek and The Cave in Queens!

On Friday December 20th at 8pm join a group of New York City’s best and brightest comedians and take part in a special rendition of the holiday classic “The Muppet Christmas Carol”! In the film, the Muppets perform the classic Charles Dickens holiday tale, with Kermit the Frog playing Bob Cratchit, the put-upon clerk of stingy Ebenezer Scrooge (Michael Caine). Other Muppets — Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Fozzie Bear and Sam the Eagle — weave in and out of the story, while Scrooge receives visits from spirits of three Christmases — past, present and future. They show him the error of his self-serving ways, but the miserable old man seems to be past any hope of redemption and happiness.

This show will be a live stage reading of the film, mixed with sing-alongs, dances, act-outs, snacks and more! Featuring Rosa Escandón, Sherm Jacobs, Casey McGowan, Ben Katzner, Anya Blue Ivy Volz, Alon Elian, Kendall Farrell, Pamela Ross, Ajani Thompson, Bronwyn Ariel Isaac, Matt Storrs and more!

All proceeds from the show will go to Coalition for the Homeless, the nation’s oldest advocacy and direct service organization helping homeless men, women and children in New York City!

Last year we raised $550 and our goal for this year is to top that!
