Two Left Feet Comedy

Two Left Feet Comedy

Are you looking for plans for your Thursday night? Want to change up your routine of hitting up the bars and clubs and do something new and exciting? Come out and see a comedy show in your life! Be a part of the most humorous experience of a lifetime. Esther Razzi Comedy, the premier producer of comedy shows in the tri-state area, is putting on the show, Two Left Feet Comedy Night. Experience jumbo sized laughter at Jimbo’s Bar and Grill. The talent included in this lineup is so ridiculous that you will never second guess coming to this show! You will be amazed at the level of humor that these human specimens are able to produce, with a woman who looks like one of the golden girls, a guy called nine volts, a man renting an apartment from a 90-year-old stripper, and a woman who has her mother in law in the trunk of her car, these comedians are bound to be hilarious.  The headliner is Sharon Simon but you won’t need to obey the command Simon Says laugh for her set because her jokes are just that funny! The creator Esther Razzi comedy loves to riff about how she is self-conscious about her name, Esther and how she has experimented with a new name.  When Thursday night rolls around you’re always strained and tired from that rough work week. We’ve all been there. Your boss practically screamed at you, you weren’t able to meet any of the deadlines and you were passed over for that promotion. You’re pretty sure that your significant other is about to break up with you and what do you know the local pizza place just raised their prices. Life is hard! So what’s a better way to deal with all the stress in this thing called life than to see a comedy show. It’s really true that laughter is the best medicine for anything. After the comedy show, you’ll feel like a new person. Suddenly that headache you’ve had will wilt away and it won’t feel so awful that those jeans are just a little too tight. You’ll even feel like you can ask that crush out that you’ve been intimidated by. read more

I was a junior member on a team selling big buildings and I had to get in the office at 6:30 am and do cold calls ALL day. I wore heels! But it taught me about work ethic and life. I feel super lucky now that I get to do something I love because wow that life was not right for me. Before I started comedy, I was very panicked that I was gonna rot under that fluorescent lighting. read more

It all started in a Whole Foods at Columbus Circle where several Indian comics would come together for a writing session and ramen. After several of these sessions (and several bowls of ramen), comedians Akaash Singh, Tushar Singh, Alingon Mitra, and KC Arora decided it was time to do shows together. That was the creation of the American Born Desi Comics (ABDCs)

The ABDCs started with a weekday show at Caroline’s on Broadway. It sold out and that is when they decided they would do it again. After several packed out shows at Caroline’s on Broadway, the ABDCs decided it was time to take their talents on the road. After doing shows in the tri-state, they decided they would go somewhere they thought they would be well received, the deep South. read more

1. What other jobs did you do before starting stand up comedy?
Man, I worked a lot of random jobs from late night shifts at The Home Depot to the shady cell phone hookups at RadioShack to graphic design photoshopping to packing boxes in a warehouse deep in Elizabeth, NJ. All were perfectly terrible places to prepare me for the emotional roller coaster that is stand up comedy. ? I actually still have a career, before I even started performing, my brother & I opened a Latin vegan restaurant almost 13 years ago in Brooklyn. We are working one of our restaurants at some point every single day. read more
