Butterboy with Jo, Aparna and Maeve
Butterboy with Jo, Aparna and Maeve
Three chuckle monsters descend on Littlefield every Monday at 8pm, clutching with them a horde of the freshest, silver-tongued comics and phone sex operators this city has to offer. Legends in their own right, these three friends, Aparna Nancherla, Maeve Higgins and Jo Firestone combine forces to host the funniest and best show in Gowanus! Accompanied by the musical stylings of DJ Donwill and the sensual silence of a rotating Idris Elba impersonator, you won't want to miss it. Plus, find out which parts of this blurb are bold, unapologetic lies!

You can also see Jo doing stand-up in different basements around the city.

Nimesh Patel
Nimesh Patel
Nimesh Patel once fought two girls and lost. At his party, he cried not because he wanted to, but because no one showed up. He's violated all of Notorious BIGs 10 crack commandments. His hatred for weathermen is only surpassed by his fear of cats that shed hair. Lastly, he wrote this on the bus this morning, because that's where his life is right now. When he's not busy crying, he performs comedy at colleges and clubs all over. He is from New Jersey, a fact he regrets mildly. Find him on Twitter @findingnimesh. Please. He needs you.
