Join us for a very special holiday edition of Littlefield's new, weekly comedy show, Night Train with Wyatt Cenac! There will be dancing!

Comedian Wyatt Cenac (“The Daily Show,” “King of the Hill”) and Producer Marianne Ways (“Hot Tub with Kurt and Kristen”), in conjunction with Littlefield, are proud to announce the start of new weekly comedy showcase NIGHT TRAIN. Hosted by Brooklyn comedy favorite Wyatt Cenac, the show will feature comedy from the best local and international stand up comedians and will--at times--feature established and new musicians, local celebrities, and the occasional surprise only found in Gowanus. Beginning Monday, November 5, NIGHT TRAIN will take place every Monday night at 8:00pm at Littlefield.
