Weds 12/21: Joe’s Pub Presents: A Holiday Special (IFC)
Despite only being a few decades old, Joe’s Pub is one of New York’s most beloved performance institutions. It was the first place in the United States that Adele and Amy Winehouse did a headline concert. The connected Public Theater is where eventual Broadway hits like Hamilton, A Chorus Line, and The Merchant of Venice first made waves. This history makes it the perfect venue for a holiday variety show, hosted by comedic talent and Veep star Tony Hale. The show’s performances include comedians Nick Thune, Jen Kirkman, Jo Firestone, Bridget Everett, and new age funk group The Dap-Kings serve as the house band.
