What’s That Joke? @ The Creek and The Cave
Aug 30 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
What's That Joke? @ The Creek and The Cave

We’ve combined the styles of Standup and Improv to bring to you an epic comedy show. Some of the funniest NYC Improvisors will make up a set on the spot based off the last joke from some of the funniest NYC Standup comedians sets. It might sound audacious but just wait till you hear how it works!

The audience’s job (You) will be to watch the show and pay specific attention to the last joke of each Standup because we will be asking you for a brief title to that joke, like “Spooky School Bus” or “Subway Barf” or even something that is way better than those!

Your generated titles will be presented to an Improv team who will have to use them to create Improv scenes. Does that sound confusing? maybe but if you come to the show we promise it will make sense! Just trust your hosts Danny Stratton and Leland Long who both love improv and stand-up and know that both forms of comedy can be mashed together to create a wonderful beast of a show!

Stand-up From:
Mark Normand (Comedy Central)
Aparna Nancherla (Netflix)
Martin Urbano (Jimmy Kimmel)
Jo Firestone (Tonight Show)

Improv From:
My Dark Little Corner (Magnet Theater)
Stedman! (Del Close Marathon)
