8PM Show Lineup

David Wain is a founding member of Stella and The State, as well as the director of “Wet Hot American Summer.” His new film, “The Ten,” is a comic look at the ten commandments, starring Paul Rudd and Winona Ryder, among many others.

Mike Daisey is a monologist and author, whose new show “Truth {the heart is a million little pieces above all things}” is currently running at Ars Nova. The New York Times called him “the master storyteller… one of the finest solo performers of his generation.”

Heather Lawless is an acclaimed standup comedian, and the co-founder of the popular monthly show The Variety Shac. She can be seen on Comedy Central’s recent “Invite Them Up” compilation, and was featured on MTV2′s “Wonder Showzen” this year.

Tanya Morgan is not a soul singer, but rather a hip-hop group, whose debut release, “Moonlighting,” has been acclaimed by The Source and received 4.5 stars from Pitchfork Media.

10PM Show Lineup

Kurt Andersen is the host of Public Radio International’s “Studio 360,” public radio’s premier arts newsmagazine. He was also the co-founder of America’s last great satirical magazine, “Spy,” and is the co-editor of the new retrospective book, “Spy: The Funny Years.”

Jonathan Coulton is a comic singer-songwriter who has been heard on The Daily Show and National Public Radio. His sensitive and hilarious songs tell stories of computer programmers and evil robot warlords in love. And other, more normal stuff.

Elephant Larry is a New York-based sketch comedy group who have been acclaimed thusly by El Tiempo de Nueva York: “A hilarious multimedia mix of the deadpan and the maniacal. The sketches call to mind, variously, Monty Python, Kids in the Hall and Second City, yet they don’t feel like knockoffs.”

Andres du Bouchet is a standout in the New York City standup scene. You may have seen him on “Tough Crowd,” or on Comedy Central’s “I Love the ’30s”.

Possibly special guests: We’ve got a little space in the late show for drop-in guests, and have a couple of maybes we can’t tell you about. Maybe we’ll just have Coulton stretch, but maybe you’ll get to see someone awesome.
