Specific Ignorance

The complete opposite of general knowledge, Specific Ignorance is a trivia panel show like no other. Three local comedians compete as a team against the audience, however here’s the catch – each comedian picks one subject, but the audience write the questions about the subject the comedian picked. If the audience can think up a question that the panel of three comedians fail to answer correctly, whoever wrote the question wins a free shot of sponsored liquor! (Also the audience gets some points…)

If, at the end of the night the audience has accumulated more points than the panel, as a punishment, the audience will choose one of the comedians to perform improvised standup comedy based solely upon the subject they chose!

It has been called one of the most enjoyable and innovative new comedy shows in the scene today.

When: Friday, September 30, 8PM

Where in Queens:  The Creek and The Cave, 10-93 Jackson Avenue, Long Island City, NY 11101

Admission: $5
