Here I am, exploiting my cat Seymour to promote Manifesto! - the show I co-host with Mo Fathelbab at People's Republic of Brooklyn (247 Smith St), every Tues at 8pm. It's the only free weekly comedy show on Smith Street! Brokelyn.com recently called our venue "a great comedy incubator," and we've moved into a cool, new downstairs space at PRB. Come be part of our comedy revolution! If the cat didn't do it for you, here's a pic from last week's show:
CASUAL PIMPIN' (HOT REMIX!) - Song of Summer 2014! Written & performed by Tim Ellis. WATCH ON YOUTUBE
I live in Brooklyn where everyone is into pickling. Not me. What I do to buck this stupid trend is, I go to an outdoor market like the Brooklyn Flea and buy someone’s ridiculous handcrafted, artisanal pickles. Then I go home and remove all the vinegar, salt, and seasoning. I turn them back into cucumbers—their natural state before some hipster messed with them. It’s difficult to do, but I do it. To further right this wrong, I’ll take the cucumbers to the grocery store and secretly put them back on the shelf, where they belong. I think they’re happy, though it’s pretty hard to tell with cukes. At least I know I’ve done something to fight back against the unnecessary brining and fermentation of vegetables that everyone engages in now, just to be cool. I’ve been called “The Unpickler,” which I don’t mind.
Manifesto! is a comedy uprising hosted by Tim Ellis & Mo Fathelbab. Every Tuesday at 8, they bring a lineup of the best comedians in NYC and beyond to the People's Republic of Brooklyn (247 Smith Street). The revolution will be hilarious...and FREE!
