6th Annual ECNY Award Winners Announced

imageThe ECNY awards: “New York’s original comedy awards,” took place on Monday when fifteen awards were presented to New York City’s favorite comedians. The Comix blog reported that Michael Ian Black was there via “live” feed from Reno, Nevada, and introduced the award for: “Outstanding Achievement in the Field of Tweeting.”

“We couldn’t be more proud of the winners,” said ECNY producer Alex Goldberg. “With over 5,000 people voting online, coupled with our industry committee votes, we made sure that the absolute best comedians working in New York were honored with the most prestigious award imaginable: a mention in a press release about the ECNYs.” And the 92Y Blog! 

92YTribeca’s Risk! True Tales Boldly Told series won an ECNY for Best Variety Show. For those unaware, RISK! is a show where people tell true stories they never thought they’d dare to share, live on stage, featuring some of the brightest actors, writers and comedians around. See if for yourself in person; The next RISK! is tomorrow, Mar 11.

Was There A Best Of List Gretchen Parlato Did Not Land On Last Year?

imageFor example, a selection of the lists jazz musician Gretchen Parlato‘s album In a Dream received in the ‘09: 2009 Voice Jazz Critics’ Poll; Washington City Paper: The Top 10 Jazz Albums of 2009; Jazz Times: Critics Picks: Top 50 New Albums and Top 10 Historical Releases; NPR Music Best of 2009: The Year Of Living Improvisationally, and etc...etc…

The album was, in a word, praised. Listen to her session on NPR’s WBGO, including her performance of Stevie Wonder’s I Can’t Help It.

And check this out...Parlato is the special musical guest at 92YTribeca tomorrow on Feb 18 for Comedy Below Canal™: Some Folks Hosted by Wyatt Cenac. Cenac you might remember had a very special Comedy Below Canal™ last month (see a picture slideshow on Flickr).

So for $12, you get to see acclaimed jazz musician Gretchen Parlato, Comedy Below Canal™ with Wyatt Cenac, AND...other special guests.  BOOM goes the dynamite.

    UPDATED: What You Missed: Comedy Below Canal™: Bro’In Out with Leo & Tony

    image
    L-R: Paul Rudd and Steve Schirripa

    Somewhere between The Dick Cavett Show and After Dark with Hugh Hefner lies “Bro’In Out with Leo & Tony.” In this live talk/variety show, host Leo Allen, ‘sidekick’ Tony Camin and bartender Jawnee Conroy welcomed Paul Rudd, Jon Glaser aka The Dreamedian, Steve Schirripa and musical guests Supercute!. There are two more photos below, and you can check out the full photo set at 92YTribeca’s Flickr.

    UPDATE: Now with video of Supercute! performing Not To Write About Boys

    Paul Rudd

    UPDATE:New York Magazine‘s Vulture Blog covered the event, and presents this exchange out of context:

    Camin: I was in Paris. I just hop on the Concorde and go.

    Rudd: Let me ask you … has it been an inconvenience at all that they’ve grounded all Concorde flights for something like ten years?

    Camin: Well, I fly out of Teterboro.

    And...Time Out New York was there as well.

    92YTribeca is For Lovers

    imageBut you already knew that, didn’t you? With February 14th quickly approaching, we just thought to remind you. At 92YTribeca, we’ll be leaving a trail of rose petals from the front door to the stage, with candles lighting the path and a Fabio CD on the soundsystem. White doves will flutter about.

    Haha, no we kid, we kid. But really, whether you’re swooning over the irresistible Paul Rudd, revisiting unrequited love and teenage love poems, learning about what foods will drive your partner wild or even how science can help you nab your sweetheart, 92YTribeca’s got you covered. And we’ll always return your calls. Check out some if what we have lined up for you achy breaky hearts:

  • This Thu, Feb 4, we will be Bro’In Out with Leo & Tony Featuring Paul Rudd and More for Comedy Below Canal™.

  • On Wed, Feb 10, try An Early Evening with Dear Old Love, Featuring Andy Selsberg, Emily Gould, Tom Shillue and Musical Guest Jeffrey Lewis. Have you ever wanted to tell the people you’ve loved (or liked) what you’ve always wanted to tell them but never did? That’s the concept behind Dear Old Love, the book and the website. Watch it come alive in an evening of reading, discussion and maybe even a song or two inspired by and dedicated to the people we’ve loved (or at least liked), requited and unrequited.

  • Thu, Feb 11, we have Comedy Below Canal™ again, with Comedy Below Canal™ Presents Mortified: Heartbreak Holiday Edition: a comic excavation of teen angst artifacts – journals, letters, poems, lyrics, home movies, stories and more.

  • Fri, Feb 12, brings you Aphrodisiacs with Francine Segan. Explore the stories behind aphrodisiacs like frog saliva, rhinoceros horns, oysters, truffles and caviar with noted food historian Francine Segan.

  • Lastly, on Sat, Feb 13, we will screen Christophe Honoré’s film The Beautiful Person (La Belle Personne), an examination of amorous pursuit in modern day Paris.

    Talk about being in the mood for love, hmm?

    More...

    What You Missed: Comedy Below Canal™: Some Folks with Wyatt Cenac featuring Colin Quinn, and More

    image

    At 92YTribeca for last Thursday’s Comedy Below Canal™, we learned that Wyatt Cenac dropped out of college for a year when he was 19 to intern at SNL. While at SNL, Wyatt told us, Colin took him under his wing and encouraged him to get into comedy writing, which played a large part in Wyatt’s decision to do just that.

    Last Thursday was the first time they had seen each other in 13 years! And as you can see in the photo above, Wyatt still holds Colin in high regard, peeking at his mentor from behind the curtain, before coming out to join him. Check out a complete set of photos from the evening in a slide show at 92YTribeca’s Flickr.

    The next Comedy Below Canal™: Witstream Live with Michael Ian Black, Amy Schumer, Myq Kaplan, Pete Holmes, Kumail Nanjiani and More, happens this Thu, Jan 28.

    Upcoming Comedy Events at 92YTribeca:

  • Dream Role! Jan 27
  • The Iron Mule Short Comedy Film Festival: Feb 6

    What You Missed: The Decade’s First Ever Iron Mule Short Comedy Film Festival

    image
    Photo of Iron Mule Short Comedy Film Festival / Credit

    The kids behind the monthly Iron Mule Short Comedy Film Festival at 92YTribeca held their first event of the decade last weekend, and “in spite outrageously cold weather,” there was a packed house in attendance. The Iron Mule Blog writes:

    Victor Varnado began the show talking about all of those lists looking back at the worst movies of the decade, and expressed his dismay that a movie he appeared in, The Adventures of Pluto Nash, wasn’t on any of the lists.  Co-host Jay Stern urged the audience to join the fight and write to all those list-makers out there, urging them to include Pluto Nash on their worst-movies-of-the-decade list.  We urge all of you readers out there to join in the effort and put the flop featuring Victor Varnado on top of those worst-movie lists!

    Read the full review here, which includes links to four of the videos presented that evening, and an announcement on the winning film.

    Tomorrow evening at 92YTribeca, don’t miss Comedy Below Canal™, and on Feb 11, the Channel 101: NY Monthly Screening.

    Coming Up at 92YTribeca

    image
    As former New York Times reporter Jennifer 8. Lee recently explained on video, there is a tradition of Jews eating out at Chinese restaurants over the Christmas Holiday. The A.V. Club knows this as well, and thinks that Chinese and a Movie at 92YTribeca on Christmas day sounds like a perfect plan:

    Neither party really wants to make much fuss over the holiday, so what better than to purchase and prepare, respectively, spring rolls and beef lo mein? 92YTribeca understands this, and here it has combined an all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet with a couple of faux-Westerns from director Mel Brooks.

    That’s right, a Chinese buffet and two Mel Brooks movies. The doors open at 2pm, with Blazing Saddles starting at 2:30pm, Spaceballs at 4pm, and all the Chinese food you can eat ‘till it’s gone!  Even better, the Village Voice is currently running a promotion, offering two free tickets to the event.

    And 92YTribeca has you covered on Christmas Eve too. Head down there at 9pm for Comedy Below Canal™: The Twelfth Night of Chanukah with Sean Patton, Janeane Garofalo, Joe Mande, Jon Glaser, Todd Barry, Jon Benjamin and Rob Paravonian.

    92YTribeca: Harbinger of What’s Cool

    image

    A pattern seems to be developing here. Choire Sicha, previously editor of Gawker, and current Los Angeles Times columnist and proprietor of The Awl, wrote a blurb for Tina Brown‘s The Daily Beast: Smart People Recommend. The premise being having an insider in their field offer one recommendation. Spending his days online, Choire wrote:

    When you find an entrancing Web site that offers something valuable, exciting, and nearly impossible to get—and for free!—it’s like finding a unicorn in a barn full of bleating goats. In the interest of sharing the magic, I give you: Awesome Tapes from Africa, an anonymous and irregularly updated blog which features fantastic, gorgeous music in mp3 form from Zambia, Kenya, Morocco, Angola, and Egypt.

    We couldn’t agree more. Awesome Tapes from Africa is an incredible blog. That’s why this May, 92YTribeca hosted Brian Shimkovitz, the man behind ATfA, for a rocking night of music from his blog. WNYC arranged to record the full set of music, you can check that out here.

    But that’s not all. Yesterday, Gawker.TV, their new video website, let their readers know about the ”Best Web Shows You Haven’t Been Watching: Wainy Days.” Again, 92YTribeca was all over that six months ago, hosting Wainy Days creator David Wain and others for a live night of Wainy Days. Wain also sat down with fellow comedian Katie Lazarus to film a short video with us in anticipation of that upcoming show.

    92YTribeca, incubating cool six months in advance. And you can be right there with us.
