I have spent many, many Wednesday nights at Riffi watching Eugene Mirman and Bobby Tisdale’s Invite Them Up Comedy show. For just $5 you could watch some of the top names in NY comedy try out new material, up and comers bringing their A game, a consistently brilliant Eugene Mirman, and Bobby farting and rubbing his mic on peoples balls. It was amazing. I am very sad to see it go and I will be documenting every day. I meant to get these up yesterday, but I just ran out of time. Tonight is the last night ever and it is going to be crazy packed. If you have a chance to go, I would show up by 7:30 at the latest. Anyway on day one I got there early and had a front row seat to document the show. Here was the line up:

PS. The biggest laughs of the night came not from any of the comics, but from John Oliver’s velour American Apparel”jumper”. (See below)
