This Comedy Show In Astoria Roasts Low-Quality Soft Core Porn
Bad news! This plan has expired. Go check out some great new ideas here.
For upscale pub fare in a cozy environment, start your night off at The Sparrow Tavern. The thick, grey walls on the outside may give it more the feel of an impenetrable fortress, but once you’re inside it’s all divey English charm complete with faded wallpaper and simple wooden tables. In addition to an obviously wide selection of beers, wines, and liquors, they serve over the pond dishes like split pee mash along with grub stables like burgers, wings, and mac and cheese. Pro-tip: Make a note of their brunch options for a day when you really need a Full English.
Softcore! Isn’t exactly what you think, though softcore porn is involved (oh, that is what you thought?). This monthly show (every first Friday), hosted by Chris Gersbeck and Jenn Wehrung at Q.E.D., invites quick-witted comedians to come and roast parts of a low-quality softcore porn movie, mocking the acting, dialogue, and overall cheesiness. The ninety-minute show is long and goes late, so pace yourself with drinks.
