Five Dollar Comedy Week is back later this month, this time at The Plays & Players Theater (1714 Delancey St.).
Sign up now for the eighth annual Troika tournament. The tournament will run every Thursday in April at 8:00pm.
Also, check out Figment Theater’s Sorkin Corps. It’s an improvised parody of everything Aaron Sorkin, with 8:00pm shows March 19, 20, 21, 26, 27, 28 and 3:00 Sunday shows March 22 & 29.

Saturday night after you’ve wined and dined the shit out of a pretty lady, take her to the raunchy midnight show at Helium to see if she’s really a keeper. If she laughs at Mike Rainey and company’s vulgar jokes about filching, smegma, and whatever else these god-damned rembrandts are discussing, you know it’s true love and not just an expensive 4am uber fare.
Kyle Kinane performs at Underground Arts on Monday February 23rd. Tweet at us to win a pair of tix (@WitOutDotNet) with your hashtag joke: What will be the next NFL scandal? Something like “Roger Goodell sex-tape” or “Michael Sam is actually straight”.
Funniest scandal, as judged by the WitOut.net intern corps, gets a free pair of tickets. We’ll leave the contest open for about a week. And… GO!
