Power Hour! Open Mic is brought to you by Amy Shanker, Brett Hiker, and Cameron Ford. Originating in Chicago, this mic mixes your hot new bits with some beer and piano. While you’re working on getting famous, a designated weekly “drinker” is on stage beside you working on a pitcher or 2 of beer. He or she will occasionally chime in to riff with your set. This is a fun, no-fail mic; if you drop the ball, the drinker will pick it up. And don’t worry! At the end of the mic, we’ll watch as the drinker attempts to do their set.
Bucket at 6:50
Start time: 7PM Saturdays Downstairs at Creek and the Cave
Power Hour! was created/hosted by Chris Damen with Keith Paesel, Ken Witzgall, Ashley Huck, and Cameron Ford at the Gallery Cabaret in Chicago, IL.
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.
