Night Train with Wyatt Cenac
Hosted by Brooklyn-based comedy favorite Wyatt Cenac, 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.
When Marcus Monroe takes the stage you can’t help but take notice. Dubbed “the rock star of jugglers” by the New York Press, Marcus combines innovative juggling with a high-energy original take. This makes him one of the most sought after variety performers. Not only is he is giving comedy-juggling a much needed extreme makeover, but Marcus is taking a strong lead in the new generation of variety performers.
Marcus is the recipient of the prestigious Andy Kaufman Award, and has performed at some of the largest music festivals including Bonnaroo, Summerfest and Outside Lands. In the summer of 2012 Marcus was a featured performer at SF Sketchfest and performed onstage with special guest Neil Patrick Harris. Marcus is a favorite at the Comedy and Magic Club in Hermosa Beach, alternative comedy shows such as Hot Tub with Kurt and Kristen and a frequent performer at Monday Night Magic in New York City. Most recently Marcus starred in the cast of the hit Off-Broadway show La Soirée.
Marcus has appeared on dozens of national TV shows and has already been seen by millions, including a performance on The Late Show with David Letterman. Other TV appearances include: MTV’s TRL, ABC Family’s Switched!, the host of Discovery Kid’s Mad Science, The History Chanel’s Pawn Stars, MTVu’s Dean List and CBS’s Secret Talents of the Stars. Marcus also appeared as the juggling consultant in the Zach Galifianakis movie It’s Kind of a Funny Story.
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.
