Events At This Venue
Comics. Writers. Stories. Laughs. Renowned storyteller and handsome beer-lover Tom Shillue brings his talents to the Tasting Room as the host of Funny Story, a comedy show with a beautifully simple premise: tell us your best story. We will be having Clay McLeod Chapman: novelist, playwright, story slam winner and screenwriter; Baron Ambrosia: host of Bronx Flavor and The Culinary Adventures of Baron Ambrosia on the Cooking Channel; Elna Baker: actress, comedian and writer. Chris Gethard: actor, comedian and host of The Chris Gethard Show; and Nat Towsen: co-host/producer/head writer of the variety show The Moon as well as a comedian and writer.
Comedian Tom Shillue’s Funny Story comedy show has become a mainstay of our monthly schedule here at the Brewery. The premise is simple: Tom and guests tell their best true stories, you drink Brooklyn beer and enjoy the show. We also brought in the folks from Brooklyn Based to help Tom pick out the lineup, and it looks incredible. We’ve been so thrilled with the shows we’ve had so far (check out that quote from BVP on the poster: these stories are important), and we can’t wait for the next edition to begin. Host Tom Shillue will be away for the month of July, but in his place will be a team of great storytellers (to be added…stay tuned to our website) will be sure to tickle your funny bone! $10 gets you a seat and a free beer. The doors open at 8pm on Thursday, July 18th, with the stories to begin at 8:30…giving you a few minutes to make a beer selection (or 2) before the hilarity ensues. We advise you begin stretching your faces and bellies now so you don’t strain anything once the laughter starts.
