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

Lonely orphan boy, Tim Unkenholz, got his most cherished wish of all when one night he was visited by a blue fairy who granted him his very own comedy open mic.
“It shall be called, ‘Butt Factory’!” proclaimed the fairy.
“Why?” asked Tim, but the fairy disappeared in a marvelous cloud of vanilla glaze. Now Tim and his new comedian friends gather together every Tuesday at 6pm to laugh and clap in hopes of summoning the fairy so he can explain this puzzling combination of words—and maybe life itself.
2 minutes of stage time to help Tim conjure the Butt Factory Fairy! Come on down!
Most comics in this city came here from somewhere else to chase a dream or run from something. Either way, we’re all New Yorkers now. But where we’re from definitely shapes our style, our attitude and our life. We’re all a little bit different, but the same because we just wanna make people laugh. This monthly showcase picks comics from one particular town and lets them stretch their legs doing a longer set so we can soak up more of their hometown flavor. Hosted by Trey Galyon, who isn’t really from anywhere. He’s lived in Boston, Lexington, Orlando, Philly and Austin. He’s running from alot of somethings but bringing some of the best talent in NYC to The Creek and Cave the fourth Tuesday of the month at 10pm! Oh, and it’s always free!
