Combat to Comedy: A Veterans Comedy Show

  • Gotham Comedy Club 208 West 23rd Street New York, NY, 10011 United States (map)

Overview: The Armed Services Arts Partnership (ASAP) is excited to host Combat to Comedy, our third annual veterans comedy show at NYC's iconic Gotham Comedy Club. The performance will feature Roy Wood Jr., Janeane GarofaloSeth Herzog, and Benari Poulten (Army), as well as Maria Batdorff (Navy), Michael Carrasquillo (Army), and Meg Mitcham (Army) -- all veterans who have graduated from ASAP's Comedy Bootcamp course. The performance culminates with a panel, where comics discuss their military experience and the impact that comedy has had on their lives. The purpose of the event is to afford our comics the opportunity to perform at one of New York’s top comedy clubs, generate awareness of the arts impact on veterans' transition into civilian life, and raise significant funds to support our arts programs for veterans, service members, and their families.
