We're celebrating the recent release of A Night at Whiplash this Friday night at The Bell House in Brooklyn. The lineup is pretty badass: Jon Benjamin, Jon Glaser, Michael Che, Aparna Nancherla, Jared Logan, and a dance piece by Monica Bill Barnes and Anna Bass. Even better? For the $20 price of admission you'll get a code for a free download of A Night at Whiplash. That's a lot of great comedy for not all that much money.
The show kicks off at 8pm this Friday night, and you can buy your tickets right here. See you on Friday!
The clever folks at Above Average have posted the trailer for their new web series, Chioke Nassor's Storytime, which features comedians telling some of their favorite true stories and then playing each character in the re-enactment of that story. The first three episodes premiere this week, with stories from Aparna Nancherla, Eric Andre, and Jonathan Ames. Of course, you'll recognize Chioke's name as one of the writers in Splitsider's own Exquisite Corpse Project. Below, check out an old episode of Storytime, with a story from stand-up and improviser Sasheer Zamata about missed connections and flashing.
