The Laughing Devil comedy club in Long Island City hosts this comedy showcase featuring “eight of the best comedians in the world” trying out their material for college and university booking agents. Co-owner and comedian Steve Hofstetter is opening some seats to the general public, which means you get to see the next best college comedians – including the surreal and sidesplitting Victor Varnado – before their potential big breaks. Admission includes a food item and a non-alcoholic drink from the menu.
