Night Train with Wyatt Cenac
Hosted by Brooklyn-based comedy favorite Wyatt Cenac (The Daily Show, King of the Hill), Night Train show features comedy from the best local and international stand up comedians, and--at times--special guest appearances by musicians, local celebrities, and the occasional surprise only found in Gowanus.
Found Footage Festival
Found Footage Festival is a one-of-a-kind event that showcases footage from videos that were found at garage sales and thrift stores and in warehouses and dumpsters throughout the country. Curators Nick Prueher and Joe Picket have been hard at work to compile the oddest and most hilarious videos that are sure to put you in the mood for love.
Marcus Monroe is a precocious entertainer taking a strong lead in the
new generation of variety performers. Internationally, Marcus has
brought his unique brand of humor, wit and specialty juggling to
venues as varied and exciting as the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in
Scotland, Brighton Fringe Festival in England, Cirkus Cirkor in
Sweden, and the Shoebox Tour in Canada. His technically difficult
juggling routine combined with his electric on-stage presence inspired
the New York Press to dub Marcus "the rock star of jugglers!" making
him a much sought-after act for many of today's hottest musicians.
Marcus has shared the stage with Aimee Mann, CAKE, Talib Kwali,
Hanson, Gavin DeGraw, and Ryan Cabrera.
CARLA RHODES is the world's foremost (and only) rock'n'roll ventriloquist. Most recently, she was a finalist in the 2012 Andy Kaufman Awards. She's been throwing her voice since the age of 9 and was mentored by the legendary Shari Lewis. You've seen her on MTV and numerous other TV programmes. Live? She's been up and down and all around the good ol' USA. Notable New York City venues include The Cutting Room, Joe's Pub, Galapagos and just about every alternative comedy and rock'n'roll venue in New York City. Across the pond you've seen her at The Glasgow Comedy Festival (Glasgow, Scotland for those of you that couldn't put it together) and delightful places in London, UK too! Unfortunately, you've most likely seen CECIL SINCLAIRE in the gutter, not looking at the stars. Dubbed by New York Magazine as one of the "Ten New Comedians That Funny People Find Funny," according to Backstage "Carla Rhodes isn’t your typical ventriloquist... She's intent on shaking up the norm..." and described in The Villager as "the Savion Glover of vents, almost single-handedly injecting a notoriously uncool and backward-looking performance branch with a badly-needed kick in the ass," Carla Rhodes is certainly bringing ventriloquism screaming into the 21st century! CARLA RHODES & CECIL SINCLAIRE currently reside in New York City.
