Tell Your Friends! So Long at Lolita Bar (June 19, 2012)
Intrepid readers of this blog may recall that about a month ago I mentioned that the venerable weekly comedy show Tell Your Friends! (aka TYF!) would be closing up shop in June. Well, now it appears that after more than six and half years of Tuesday nights, a bunch of special shows, and one movie, the end is nigh for TYF as we now know it*. Join Liam McEneany on June 19 for a final bow at Lolita with Bryan Tucker, Kurt Braunohler, Wyatt Cenac, Kristen Schaal, a top secret special guest**, musical guest Eden & John’s East River String Band, and the house band, A Brief View of The Hudson.
More info on the final lineup after the jump. (I do recommend getting there early though, this one is going be packed.)
* Liam tells me that TYF will actually continue, but not in its current form as a weekly workout room. You can look forward to semi-regular “Big Show” TYFs at venues like the Bell House.
** Could it be Louis CK? Really, I have no idea, but that would be my guess.
