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!

Born helpless, nude, and unable to provide for herself, Molly Austin eventually overcame these handicaps to become a conjurer of charm, a wizard of wit, and a queen (or king, depending on your religious views) of komoidía! Molly has been performing with The Peoples Improv Theater since 2006 and has studied improv as well as sketch at the Upright Citizens Brigade. Molly also stretched her acting muscles at the Deena Levy Theater Studio for two years and can now cry on command. Molly is one half of the smash hit webseries, EMOTISTYLE .
