Brooklyn Comedy Festival – BRUNCH SHORTS PROGRAM 1

Run Time: 90 min. Format: Digital

The 2017 Shorts program is…hard to describe. If you’re too busy to take a mescaline-laced road trip to a strange city with your funniest friends, just come and watch these shorts. It’ll feel pretty much the same, and you won’t have to pay for gas. Featuring new work from Alan Resnick, Joe Firestone, Kati Skelton, Nathan Truesdale, and so, so, so much more.
