Event Details

Wednesday, July 23 8 pm
The Creek and the Cave
10-93 Jackson Ave. LIC
Once a month, New York's top comedians get together and throw their set lists out the window for a night of wild riffing. Comics either premiere a story that they've never told anyone, improvise a stand-up set based on an audience suggestion, or rant off the cu...ff. Expect freestyling and musical improv, too, in an anything goes atmosphere that makes for a one-of-a-kind experience. Not to be missed!

Hosted by Carolyn Castiglia (Vh1) with house band THE VIGILANTE

Carolyn Castiglia


Carolyn Castiglia is a stand-up comedian known for her hilarious riffing and crowd work, wild storytelling and her incredible ability to freestyle rap, tying entire shows together in one brilliant song. She has appeared all over television, on shows like Joan and Melissa: Joan Knows Best, The Funniest Mom in America and Last Comic Standing. Her NickMom series “Ultimate Sports Mom” aired nightly for two years and she is a frequent guest commentator on HLN. Many viewers know her as Miss CKC, her lovable and goofy hip-hop persona, seen on VH1, MTV2 and Comedy Central. Carolyn has performed live in amazing venues all over New York and the world, including Joe’s Pub, Symphony Space, 92Y Tribeca, UCB Chelsea, UCB East and at The Edinburgh Fringe. Fringe review publication Three Weeks said, “Carolyn Castiglia was the funniest female comedian I've seen at the Fringe.” Hy Bender of Hy Reviews says, “Carolyn Castiglia is one of the sharpest, quickest, and funniest comics in NYC—and, so far, one of the most underappreciated. If you haven't seen Carolyn on stage, you oughta.” Before she died, comedy legend Joan Rivers called Carolyn “hysterical,” which means now Carolyn can die happy, too.
