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.
Every month comedian Dan King writes a pilot script for a new sitcom. Come on out to Test Pilots Live! to see live table-reads of each new script. It’s important that you come see these live because these ideas will never ever make it to television.
Check out test-pilots.com every month for new scripts from Dan and come to the show to see the funniest people in New York bring these ideas to life.

Medusa Presents: Improv Against Humanity. Each month Medusa gathers New York’s top storytellers, improvisers, and stand ups to make comedy out of horribleness. The show, inspired by the infamous card game, is proven to be one hell of a way to say goodbye to a bad week. Prepare to laugh at misery with the joy of a true New Yorker as your host, Medusa, ends the evening with a completely improvised documentary based on a terrible card you’ve chosen! It’s more fun than [an unhinged ferris wheel rolling toward the sea].

The Kaleidoscope is an experiment where friends and strangers get together and perform. Every week, four improvisers will form teams with whom they have never performed to create teams that have never existed and will never exist again. Like a kaleidoscope: every time you look you will see something different. Hosted by Tao Yang
