Comedy in concert at home: asembl (not so) live #10
Taped shows are fine. But there's nothing like standup in concert. And going out is forbidden. What if we could have comedy in concert at home? Yeah, that sounds good.
That's what we have on Friday, April 10 at 9 o'clock (Eastern). Join us for Meg Stalter, Chris Thayer & Nore Davis.
Here's the main page for the series where you can check out upcoming and past shows.
Or follow us on social media for the same:
Here's how it works:
- Get Zoom here (it's super simple to use and free).
- Hit the "Join the show" button below at 9:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 8 to join. You can RSVP and add to your calendar here or on Facebook (shudder).
- Turn on your microphone and/or camera so we can hear everybody laugh and feel together (also: behave).
- Our amazing comedians do 10 minute sets each.
- You laugh a great deal.
- Donate. We're not putting up a paywall since we want everyone to easily join but we'd appreciate your donating $5 (or more!). Everybody's gigs went poof so a bit of cash would be highly appreciated.
