And if you're wondering whether to pay twenty-five dollars for a show, remember that this is one of the best comedy lineups in NYC. And it's the holidays! Think of this as a Christmas gift for the folks of the Sudan who are suffering through what has been described as one of the worst humanitarian disasters in the world.
These tickets will be made available to the general public soon, but we're giving you the chance to be among the first to buy these. Tickets to this event are available for presale at Ticketweb.
