Grease 3 - Threase

Every Friday night this month you can see the production Show Business Weekly described as "standout music and a genuine absurdity not to be missed:" Grease 3: Threase

Tonight’s recommendations for the best in New York City comedy (in chronological order, with top picks noted and shows over $10 marked with $) include:

7:00 pm ($8): Award-winning improv duo Lucas Kavner and Bradford Jordan make stuff up with “a celebrity guest improvisor’ at Swords

[TOP PICK] 8:00 pm ($10): The thoroughly wonderful comics of sketch troupe Fearsome—Shayna Ferm, Katherine Bryant Flaherty, Alex Goldberg, and Chris O’Connor—are joined by such other immense talents as Livia Scott and Amy Heidt to perform a new comedic musical that’s very, very loosely based on a classic Travolta/Newton John vehicle: Grease 3: Threase

8:00 pm ($10): Two male sketch duos performing on a double-bill: Two Fun Men, who reportedly are all of those thingsl; and very smart and somewhat nerdy comics Dan St. Germain (MTV; quick-witted rising star) and Jared Logan (Last Comic Standing, Comedy Central, co-host of Righteous Kill) doing a show about history’s most infamous rivalries in They Hated Each Other

[FREE] 8:00 pm: NYC stand-ups—not announced this week—performing at O’Hanlon’s (14th Street off 1st Avenue) hosted by someone also not announced this week: Hot Soup

[$] 8:30 pm & 10:30 pm ($25 & 2-drink min.) A stand-up who’s starred in his own Comedy Central hour-long special The Things We Do For Love, and performed on David Letterman and Jay Leno, headlining tonight and Saturday at the Gotham Comedy Club: Pete Correale

[TOP PICK] 9:00 pm ($10): Some of the finest improv in NYC from the comedy genius members of The Stepfathers

10:00 pm ($7): Singing improvisors who use an interview with an audience member to craft The Made-Up Musical

10:30 pm ($10): Jonathan Gabrus, Sue Galloway, and other fine improvisors make up scenes about an audience member’s legal dispute at The Law Firm: Law & Disorder

[TOP PICK] Midnight ($5): Charlie Todd (Improv Everywhere), Geoff Garlock, Alex Scordelis, and Doug Stoley are among tonight’s guests joining “opinionated audiophile John Frusciante hosting a revolving panel of music-loving comedians, writers, and musicians for a live monthly discussion about the state of music past and present, what you should and shouldn’t be listening to, and why KISS sucks so much. It is a guarantee that your favorite band will at some point be brought up, dissected, and either praised to the rafters or dismissed with the wave of a hand that knows how to properly handle vinyl:” Break Up Your Band
