We’re approaching the end of 2021 so here’s comedy recs to finish off your year with some giggles.
Just For Us at the Cherry Lane Theatre and Working It Out
Alex Edelman is a hilarious and thoughtful comedian who floats between the US and UK comedy scenes. He’s basically Ted Lasso, if Ted Lasso was a comedian from Boston who roller blades (listen to the podcast). Check out his recent appearance on Mike Birbiglia’s Working It Out to hear about Alex’s show, Just For Us, which Birbigs is presenting and will be at the Cherry Lane Theatre through December 19th. Alex has a fantastic perspective on crafting hour-long one-person shows (as in Birbiglia/Edinburgh stand-up hours) and it was a joy to see him weave so many jokes into the captivating story of his run-in with white supremacists in Queens. Now, if you’re worried about a small theater full of laughter during the Omicron variant…get boosted, get brave, and get tickets. You don’t want to miss it!
Wheel of Misfortune
Fern Brady and Alison Spittle
Another podcast recommendation! Fern Brady and Alison Spittle are beginning a new season of their hilarious BBC Sounds podcast, Wheel of Misfortune, with objectively one of the catchiest theme songs you’ll ever hear. Don’t let it deter you…you’ll be humming it in your sleep, and that’s fun! Fern and Alison spin the wheel of misfortune to pick the theme for the episode then they play listeners’ stories of misfortune on the topic and share their own. So if you’ve ever truuuly embarrassed yourself…call in!
They are both hilarious stand-ups and brilliant storytellers so their comedy really sticks with you. Get this podcast in your brain and carry some laughs with you into the new year.
