That said, my top NYC comedy recommendations for November 2018 (with more to come soon) include:

Tinder Live 11Saturday 11/3: A show celebrating the app that redefined online dating, with the lovely and quick-witted Lane Moore (middle; HBO’s Girls; Sex & Relationship Editor of Cosmo; writer for The Onion, McSweeney’s; author of upcoming book How to be Alone) going on a live Tinder safari for guys while a packed audience watches her every choice with fascination. Offering comments and suggestions are guest comics Connor Ratliff (left; brilliant improvisor & character comic; The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Orange is the New Black, Broad City, The Chris Gethard Show, The President Show; co-star of legendary improv group The Stepfathers; host of The George Lucas Talk Show), Michelle Collins (right; host of TLC’s 90 Day Live and Sirius XM’s The Michelle Collins Show; former co-host of ABC’s The View and Bachelor in Paradise: After Paradise), and Kyle Ayers (bottom; Fuse’s Uproarious; written for CBS, Comedy Central, TBS, BBC, The New York Times). This show usually sells out, so I recommend nabbing tickets in advance online for Tinder Live (8:30 pm, $15, Brooklyn’s Littlefield at 635 Sackett Street; take R subway to Union Street)

Seventh Annual Gotham Storytelling FestivalToday-Monday 11/5: This annual East Village storytelling festival this year features tales about Tinder dating, schoolteaching, chronic illness, immigration, and more, all taking place at the Kraine Theatre. For show descriptions and showtimes, please click Seventh Annual Gotham Storytelling Festival ($20 per show, or significantly less if you buy 3 or more shows at a time; The Kraine Theatre at 85 East 4th Street off Second Avenue)

He is literally the only person in NYC providing daily summaries of what’s happening comedy-wise. It must be exhausting keeping that monster of a website alive. It is your daily comedy itinerary and it scares me how on top of his shit this guy is.

NYC Top Comedy Choices for Thursday 2/11/16

February 11, 2016

If you’re funny and a talented writer, consider submitting a short story to my fiction anthology Ghosts on Drugs. I’m being flooded with submissions from fantasy/SF/horror writers, but not many comics; and this is a great opportunity to land a prestigious book credit, plus upfront pay and a share of the royalties. Full details are here.

First Comes LoveKyle Ayers placed an ad on Craigslist claiming to be the CEO/Producer of a major adult film company. He asked for 3-4 page porn scripts from aspiring adult film writers. What he didn’t expect was to get over 1,000 responses in one week…which he now has comedians and friends act out verbatim on stage, for better or worse. This month is the show’s First Anniversary, and its small army of a cast includes Anna Drezen and Matteo Lane: First Comes Love (8:30 pm, $10, Brooklyn’s Bell House at 149 7th Street in Brooklyn; take R subway to 9th Street or F/G to Fourth Avenue)
