I love New York, and I still very much want to live and do standup comedy there. But the homers who say Manhattan is 100% great are ignoring the Kubrick-like dehumanization that’s happening to its residents all over the city all the time. Obviously, this licking a shoe is hilarious. But I love the Asian dude sitting next to him who doesn’t react AT ALL to a man licking his shoe in a manner I can only describe as “vigorous.”

The latest This Is Not Happening show features an amazing lineup of comedians. This time, they’re all going to be telling sports stories. You’d be surprised how few comics even know what sports are. I think most of them are on this show.
As always, I’ve managed to keep the tickets priced at just $5. That’s a steal. I do it because I really like this show and I’m way more interested in making them a really fun time for the audience and myself. I seriously don’t even want to make any money off these.
Kevin Christy made the poster, as usual. I’m considering starting to sell prints of these after the shows and just giving the cash to Kevin. Enough people have asked where they can get copies. If I do, I’ll probably just sell them for 10 bucks or something.
