SARAH SILVERMAN & FRIENDS

Two-time Emmy Award winner Sarah Silverman is as versatile of a performer as they come. Her repertoire includes film and television, stand-up, iconic online videos, and authoring a New York Times best-seller. Her film credits include Sarah Silverman: Jesus Is Magic, A Million Ways to Die in the West,The Aristocrats, School of Rock, and There’s Something About Mary. She starred in Comedy Central’s The Sarah Silverman Project and has guest starred in The Good Wife, Monk, The Larry Sanders Show, and Seinfeld. Silverman starred in the HBO stand-up special We Are Miracles, for which she won a Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special category. She’s going to bring some friends with her too!

TRACY MORGAN

Tracy Morgan needs no introduction, but here’s one anyway: Morgan is best known for his stints on Saturday Night Live—where he created characters like Brian Fellow and Dominican Lou—and his starring role for seven seasons on 30 Rock, where he played an exaggerated version of himself. Morgan suffered serious injuries in a 2014 auto accident, but he’s miraculously back at full strength.

REGGIE WATTS AND HIS BAND KAREN

A special evening with Reggie Watts backed by his 4-piece Late Late Show band Karen! Reggie is an internationally renowned vocal artist / beatboxer / musician / comedian who wows audiences with his live performances which are 100% improvised.  Using his formidable voice, looping pedals, and his vast imagination, Reggie blends and blurs the lines between music and comedy. You probably recognize him from Comedy Bang Bang or multiple appearances on every late-night show (he’s currently band leader for The Late Late Show With James Corden) or even Pitch Perfect 2.

 

BIG TERRIFIC WITH JENNY SLATE, GABE LIEDMAN & MAX SILVESTRI

In 2008, Gabe Liedman, Jenny Slate, and Max Silvestri started a weekly comedy show in Brooklyn that was eventually declared the city’s best by the likes of New York Magazine and Time Out. In addition to bringing other comics to new light, the trio have crafted big careers of their own, with Slate appearing on TV and in film (including the lead in Obvious Child).

MICHAEL CHE

Michael Che is the current co-host of SNL’s Weekend Update, and was previously a Daily Show correspondent. Critics and audiences agree, NY-based writer and standup comedian Michael Che is a star on the rise. Having been named one of Rolling Stone’s “50 Funniest People,” Buzzfeed's "50 Hottest Men in Comedy," and Variety’s “Top 10 Comics To Watch,” he is quickly leaving his mark on the media landscape. 

CHRIS GETHARD: ‘CAREER SUICIDE’

Chris Gethard is host of The Chris Gethard Show on Fusion, which was just renewed for a second season. The show started as a cult hit on public access, with Gethard forming a bond with his deeply dedicated viewers and guests. Gethard has also been seen on Broad City and Inside Amy Schumer. His new hour of stand-up is called 'Career Suicide', and it focuses on “suicide, alcoholism, and all the other funniest parts of life.”

 

2 DOPE QUEENS WITH JESSICA WILLIAMS AND PHOEBE ROBINSON

2 Dope Queens consists of Jessica Williams ("The Daily show") and Phoebe Robinson ("Broad City"). They host a monthly stand-up and storytelling show in Brooklyn and invite some of their funniest friends from film, TV, and music to talk about black hair, white boyfriends, and everything in between. Their parents and the New York Times love them and their podcast. You will too.

7 MINUTES IN PURGATORY

7 Minutes in Purgatory, a stand-up comedy show hailed as an “outrageous experiment” by the Chicago Tribune, returns with a special one-night-only event! Host and co-creator of 7 Minutes In Purgatory, Ian Abramson, will challenge seven comedians to perform their material to a camera alone on the roof of The Hideout. Audience members will watch a live feed of the comics as they awkwardly and hilariously attempt to perform without knowing the crowd’s reaction. Special guests will be announced soon!
