It’s in Queens
#PickoftheWeek | Get your giggles at comedy album launch party in Astoria
He’s won an Emmy. He’s written for “The Daily Show” for Trevor Noah and Jon Stewart. And he’s enjoyed stints with Comedy Central and the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.
Now he’s ready for the big time…Queens.
Matt Koff will throw a Release Party for his debut comedy album — “Who’s My Little Guy?” — at QED Astoria on Friday, Nov. 1, at 7:30 p.m.
Puns, crazy stories, impressions, general hilarity, and beer.
The host, who has toured the country as a stand-up comedian, will do some of his favorite routines as part of the fun. But he’ll also get a little help from some friends. Other scheduled performers include Jo Firestone (“The Tonight Show”), Ronny Chieng (“Crazy Rich Asians”), Matt Wayne (Comedy Central), and Brendan McLaughlin (“Best Week Ever”).
During the show, Heather Berlin, a multi-titled cognitive neuroscientist and assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, will listen to “Who’s My Little Guy?” backstage and then offer her psychoanalysis of Koff based on what she’s heard.
What a night, but what’s the story behind “Who’s My Little Guy?” After doing comedy related for current events for over a decade, Koff decided it was time to fulfill his dream and create an album that delves into more personal experiences. Recorded at Union Hall in Brooklyn, the album makes light of Koff’s neurotic mother, the awkwardness of celebrating Christmas as a Jew, being fired, and getting in a bicycle accident in New York City
You know. Wholesome stuff.
Tickets are $10 each. QED is located at 27-16 23rd Ave.
