S.U.C.K. (Stand Up Comedy Klub) is a monthly show hosted by a coalition of six of NYC’s greatest comics, performers, and weirdos: Hank Browning, Samantha Fontana, Gregory Lotsvin, Shane O'Neill, Jill Pangallo, and David Perez. With a broad range of perspective, styles, and levels of depression, S.U.C.K. creates a show as diverse as New York City itself except that we only feature one person of color. But we DO have two half-jews, an adopted person, a gay gentleman who's occasionally mistaken for trans, and a white dude who can grow an afro. Catch us monthly in the East Village.
