Schtick or Treat
Bands often perform special "tribute" sets on Halloween and do a show as some bigger, more famous band. It's fun and crowds dig it. This is like that, but with comedy. Schtick or Treat gives upwards of 30 NYC comics three minutes each to perform jokes as their favorite comedian. It's a night of hilarious and irreverent tributes, with sets by everyone from "Richard Pryor" to "Mitch Hedberg" and "Sarah Silverman."
Hosted by Mark Normand (John Oliver's Stand-Up Show) & Matt Ruby
