Join the ALL STARS OF COMEDY for a special SUPER HEROES-themed show! They have been nailing it at Pete's Candy Store the first Tuesday of every month for a while now, featuring some of NYC’s most exciting, up-and-coming comedians as they take their failures and misfortunes and spin them into an evening of comedy gold. In the last year plus they have had comedians who have been featured on Letterman, Conan, Ferguson, Last Week Tonight, Saturday Night Live, NPR, and more!

This month, they are doing something extra special in honor of a particular super hero of theirs, Stanley Stardust. Diagnosed with biliary atresia at 2 months old, Stanley received a liver transplant in July 2016. Stanley's family has asked for assistance from the Children's Organ Transplant Association (COTA), a 501(c3) nonprofit organization. An estimated $75,000 is being raised by volunteers to assist with transplant-related expenses. While the All Star show is always FREE, any and all donations* are welcome! The All Stars will be dressing to impress, so please attend in your favorite super hero garb if you are so inclined. But if not, no worries! The All Stars are v sensitive and never make you do anything you don't want to do.

There will be jokes! Stories! Characters! Drinks! (‘cause it’s at a bar duh!) PRIZES! And lots of therapy references! Remember: everyone's an all star. So we'll see you then!
