Brooklyn vs. Queens: A Comedy Throwdown

Friends of mine: If you’re in New York, you should come see my hilarious friend Sue Funke and her hilarious friends be hilarious. Details below:

On Saturday, October, 1 at 9pm comedians Liz Simons, Selena Coppock, and Sue Funke are producing a show at Gleason’s Gym in DUMBO titled, “Brooklyn vs. Queens: A Comedy Throwdown.”

The premise is to have similar standup comedians from either borough perform back-to-back. The match ups include: Brooklyn Gay vs. Queens Gay, Native Brooklyn vs. Native Queens, Blonde Brooklyn vs. Blonde Queens and, of course the girl comic-on-girl comic action of Brooklyn Lady Comic vs. Queens Lady Comic. Borough pride is on the line and the comedy brawls will be intense and hilarious.
