The Macaulay Culkin Show: 5th Annual Summer Comedy Fest

Shea Stadium (RIP?) presents the 5th Annual edition of our SUMMER COMEDY FEST at our new home at H0L0 in Ridgewood!

Brett & Sally are out on furlough to prove their innocence and present one of the show's most stacked lineups yet performing their funniest or most insane 5-minute sets, and this year is no different (and we have air conditioning this time):

JD Amato
Colin Burgess
Joe Castle Baker

Sam Taggart
Three Busy Debras (Mitra Jouhari, Sandy Honig & Alyssa Stonoha)

Visual Delicacies at Caveat

Visual Delicacies: An Anthology of Short Films is a screening hosted and created by comedian, filmmaker, and artist Lorelei Ramirez (VICE/ADULT SWIM).

Visual Delicacies features short films from filmmakers working today across a variety of genres. Inspired by mediocre white centered anthology series’ and inaccessible film festivals, Visual Delicacies highlights works from people of all genders, sexualities, races, and classes to create an equal playing ground for beautiful and thought provoking work. 

By gathering a group of visually decadent pieces for everyone to enjoy, Visual Delicacies creates an atmosphere for film appreciation and the comfort of knowing good things still exist. This night is meant to highlight some of the most exciting voices working in short form film today that might not yet be noticed or are well on their way and to give you, the viewer, a visual escape that’ll inspire you thereafter.

FEATURING WORK FROM:

Joe Rumrill
Tynan Delong
Colin Burgess
Jess Lane

Our last Lethal Lottery Champions Le Na & Amy Zimmer return to defend their crowns against a slew of new participants to be announced Monday in this event!
