I went to a New Talent show at Caroline’s on Broadway on Monday, April 4th, and saw a number of hilarious people, including a 73 year old guy named Mel Novit. You can watch a performance of him here (this is not at Caroline’s):
Also dropping in were Michele Balan (of “Last Comic Standing” fame), who killed, and believe it or not, Darrell Hammond of SNL fame stopped by to do a set.
While we’re on the topic, I am planning to do a Monday new talent night myself at Caroline’s on June 6th (show starts at 7 pm). I know I said I would not do this again, but yet, here I am.
It’s a “bringer” (as are many of the “new talent” nights at clubs in the city) in that I’ve got to round up at least 10 bodies to come in and pay a $5 cover each (cheap!) and two-drink minimum (which can be soft drinks). I’ll be sure to send out further harassing notifications to remind you as the date nears.
