If you had the chance to get out late on a Monday night in New York City, and had the chance to see Irishman David O’Doherty, the big winner of the If.Comedy Award at this summer’s Edinburgh Fringe, do a jet-lagged 40-minute set for free at the UCB Theatre, or pay $10 and order two items at the Comedy Cellar and get treated to an unannounced performance of close to two hours by Dave Chappelle, would you have gone out, and which show would you have picked? This was neither a hypothetical nor a rhetorical question.
