To Better Crowds Indeed
Last week we toasted to better crowds. Last night the better crowd arrived.
It was the relaunch of the Comedy Pro Shop, and despite freezing temperatures and the aftermath of a blizzard, a huge crowd turned out to see a great show. It was standing room only and the energy was great throughout the entire night.
I haven't had that much fun at a comedy show in a long time. It was great to see a bar full of people hang on every word of Andres du Bouchet's Naked Trampoline Hamlet monologue, delivered as he walked through the crowd. And it's always fun to see such great comics perform in an informal environment.
I realize it's just the first night, but I think this new incarnation of the Pro Shop, produced by the Brooklyn Comedy Company, is going to be a lot of fun.
