Standup Comedy From Parents Who Want to Lie Down
Standup Comedy From Parents Who Want to Lie Down
Standup comedians with kids. It’s laughable.

An evening of standup comedy from some of NYC's funniest comedians who happen to have kids and are likely very tired. Hosted by Ophira Eisenberg, featuring Eugene Mirman, Roy Wood Jr., Iris Bahr, and more; expect a night of hard hitting jokes about the magical and fucking maddening journey that is parenthood. Each one of them had to work hard to leave the house by 7, and regardless of what they are being paid, this show might be costing them money, so come join these standups as they mourn the loss of their old identity and celebrate the gain of new material, with bits about their chaotic life, crippling resentment, and of course joys of having dependents. They’ll also be drunk after half a beer. It’ll be fun!
