free stand up comedy festival nycI sat down with my good friend and comedian/producer Joe Gerics. Joe is the producer of many Standup comedy shows around NYC and recently just started co-producing the Free Stand up Comedy Festival starting this Saturday September 5th. See link below for schedule and details.
We met up just before his show Country Time at the New York Comedy Club.

So When does the festival start?

The festival is starting Saturday, the kick off show is here at New York Comedy Club at 5pm and we’re gonna have 2 shows every night.  So 14 shows; one in Manhattan and one in Brooklyn and Queens every night. We started it for a couple reasons, same reason I started producing. Really just stage time and to immerse myself more within the comedy community. I wanted to be on a festival, so i thought, weIl I’ll just run my own festival. Thats always been my plan, you have to create your own stage and your own opportunity. read more
