LAUGHTER IN THE CITY - FEBRUARY 2018
NYPL - THE NEW NYC HOTSPOT FOR FUN NEWS!
We get it NY. You hear library and it's triggering. YOU THINK book reports. WE THINK they've evolved beyond your 4th grade flashbacks of 1000 word homework assignments. NYLaughs sees it as the new hot spot for all things truthful and democratic.
Come celebrate Black History Month with LITC featuring a roster of some of the most hilarious comics behind the mic right now. Look, they set aside the shortest month to celebrate Black History- let's make every day count by laughing like crazy. Bring your friends, bring your Nana, bring your overdue library books. The librarians have strict orders not to "shush" that night- they'll be too busy laughing along with you.
NY you need to laugh- it's winter. It's dark. The news keeps getting more insane. Treat yourself to a giggle and treat your fellow sufferers of Seasonal Affective Disorder to your company. We're New Yorkers and we love our fellow New Yorkers.
