Hot Tub with Guest Host Adam Newman
Hot Tub is a weekly evening of comedy, music, and other weird shit. Come see the best and the newest comedians in the city! This edition will be hosted by the great Adam Newman!
Chris Gethard
Chris Gethard
Chris Gethard is the host and star of "The Chris Gethard Show" on Fusion and the host of the popular Earwolf podcast "Beautiful Stories from Anonymous People". Chris recently starred in the Mike Birbiglia film, “Don’t Think Twice" and can be seen as ‘Todd’ on Comedy Central’s “Broad City". Other credits include Comedy Central’s “Inside Amy Schumer,” NBC’s “Parks and Recreation”, “The Office” and “The Heat.” Chris is the author of the book A Bad Idea I’m About to Do and his first stand-up album (“My Comedy Album”) debuted on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart in 2014. Chris's one man show, Career Suicide (produced by Judd Apatow) recently finished a successful off-broadway run at The Lynn Redgrave Theatre in NYC.
Michael Che
Michael Che
Critics and audiences agree, NY-based writer, actor and standup comedian Michael Che is a star on the rise. Having been named one of Rolling Stone’s “50 Funniest People,” Buzzfeed's "50 Hottest Men in Comedy," and Variety’s “Top 10 Comics To Watch,” he is quickly leaving his mark on the media landscape. A native of lower Manhattan, Che’s comedy uses humor to identify humanity in the most controversial actions. He applies street culture to world issues with a delivery that The New York Times describes as "a reflective, laid-back stage presence with jokes that draw as much from his city upbringing…as from blunt, insightful points that bring the abstract into focus.”

Che is currently the co-anchor of Saturday Night Live’s iconic “Weekend Update” segment where he is also a staff writer for the show. He also recently released his first hour-long stand-up special entitled Michael Che Matters on Netflix. His first special aired in 2014 on Comedy Central’s The Half-Hour stand-up series. Prior to joining SNL, Che was part of “The Best F*&#ing News Team Ever!” as a correspondent on Comedy Central’s Emmy & Peabody Award-winning program The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. In February of 2014, he became the first-ever standup [comedian] to perform on NBC's Late Night with Seth Meyers, which marked his second late night appearance following his 2012 late night television debut on CBS's Late Show with David Letterman.

Che has made numerous other television and film appearances including Chris Rock’s Top Five, Comedy Central's hit series @midnight, and as a weekly cast member on Vh1’s Best Week Ever.

In August 2013, Che headlined a successful month-long run of standup shows entitled “Cartoon Violence” at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, with The Guardian raving, “his effectiveness as a comic is instant.”

Che has performed on the Oddball Comedy and Curiosity festival tour, at The Melbourne International Comedy Festival, The Montreal Comedy Festival, Comedy Central’s South Beach Comedy Festival, The Moontower Comedy Festival, and Bonnaroo, where The Nashville Scene proclaimed “Straight up: Michael Che is going to be a star.” He was crowned the winner of the New York’s Funniest Stand-Up competition at the 2012 New York Comedy Festival, and both Time-Out NY and Comedy Central have listed him as one of their "Comics To Watch." He headlines comedy shows nationally and internationally.
Simon Feilder
Simon Feilder
Since diving headlong into the world of stand-up comedy, UK-based comedian Simon Feilder has been a semi-finalist in the BBC New Comedy Awards, a finalist in the Amused Moose Talent Quest, Laughing Horse New Act, Bath New Act, Leicester New Act Competition and Jongleurs Comedy Callback. Always the bridesmaid. Simon has been described as "Highly entertaining" by TimeOut and “Compelling to watch... Unashamedly feelgood.” by Chortle.co.uk. In 2011 Simon was picked by Bound & Gagged Productions to be part of their AAA Stand-up show at the Edinburgh festival. An in-demand voiceover artist, Simon has lent his wild enthusiasm and vocal talents to BAFTA-winning kids’ show Yo Gabba Gabba for NickJr and the BAFTA-nominated Jim Jam & Sunny for CITV.
Brent Sullivan
Brent Sullivan
LA-based stand-up comedian Brent Sullivan describes his act as a true interpretation of himself on stage. Full of dichotomies, he has been described as wonderfully sarcastic, lovingly condescending and “gay – but not gay.” Brent has been featured on the Comedy Central series “Live at Gotham” and developed his own live show, "Fag Life: A Conversation with Fred Phelps" at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater. His live show became such a success he was given an extended run and continues to tour the show with the UCB Theater Company. Brent is also the co-creator and co-star of the hilarious web series "It Gets Betterish," which MTV’s Clutch Blog included on it's "5 Web Comedies to watch" list.
Die Roten Punkte
Die Roten Punkte
Die Roten Punkte (The Red Dots) are the Prinz and Prinzessin of Berlin’s underground rock scene. Orphaned as teenagers, Astrid and Otto found themselves homeless in Berlin before they dove into a rock baptism by fire (started by one of Astrid’s cigarettes). Born-again as Die Roten Punkte, the duo was catapulted into European stardom. Described as “a lipstick-smeared, tantrum-loving, sonic collision between the B52s, Kraftwerk and the early Ramones”, Die Roten Punkte are truly one of a kind. Astrid’s avant-garde style and legendary antics inspire both reverence and fear, while Otto’s dynamic stage presence brings to mind a whirling dervish on meth. With a string of awards and sell-out shows across New York, Montreal and Edinburgh, this counter-culture rock duo has reached the pinnacle of their artistry. They are art rock incarnate.
