Tell Your Friends! about this movie trailer, and also a ticket giveaway to an early screening

Tell Your Friends! may be just a weekly show that attracts popular comedians and musicians in the basement of a bar in New York City's Lower East Side, but as a film, it's more of a living document about the city's independent (you say alternative, I say indie: Alternative! Indie! Alternative! Indie!) comedy scene as a whole.

Liam McEneaney, who puts on TYF! each Tuesday beneath Lolita, got comedian Victor Varnado to direct a concert and documentary footage that makes up Tell Your Friends! The Concert Film — with performances by Reggie Watts, Kurt Braunohler & Kristen Schaal, Christian Finnegan, Leo Allen, Rob Paravonian, Liam McEneaney, music by A Brief View of the Hudson, and interviews with Janeane Garofalo, Jim Gaffigan, Colin Quinn, Marc Maron, Paul F. Tompkins, Eddie Brill, Wyatt Cenac, Hannibal Buress and Kumail Nanjiani. Here's the first trailer.

Roll it!


Would you like to see the movie? Would you like to see it before everyone else? There's a sneak preview screening on Feb. 15, 2011, and there is a pair of seats waiting for you and your friend. For this ticket giveaway, email TYFScreening@gmail.com, and put "The Comic's Comic" in the subject heading. Good luck!

One thought on “Tell Your Friends! about this movie trailer, and also a ticket giveaway to an early screening

  1. It’s a sweet-natured, agreeable-enough diversion, with just enough high culture, rowdy comic relief and flirtations with historical import that it’s comfort food for art-house patrons of a certain age.
