You're a grown-up. You work hard. You read the news.
You appreciate a night out with friends where everyone isn't texting and taking selfies.
So, when you're out for a night of comedy, you want entertainment that respects who you are,
that's smart, that doesn't shoot for the lowest common denominator, that says something about the world we live in and speaks to your experience.
That's our show. It's as sophisticated and elegant as the cocktail and City for which it's named (it’s also very, very funny).
The show is brought to you by:
Alex Barnett
As the White, Jewish husband of a Black woman (who converted to Judaism) and the father of a 2-year old, Biracial son, Alex focuses on the challenges of being a parent in a bad economy and the issues that confront interracial families.  Alex, who began his comedy career after years as a lawyer (to the consternation of his mother), has been featured on the Katie Couric Show, Sirius/XM Radio’s “Raw Dog Comedy,” and in The Wall Street Journal, The Huffington Post, and CNN.com.  In 2011, he won the 12th Annual Gilda’s Club (Northern NJ) Laugh-Off. 
Adam Oliensis
Adam has spent decades studying philosophy & martial arts. He has undergone extensive psychotherapy. Twice.  But no amount of intellectual, spiritual, or physical discipline could prepare him for the slow chipping away of self-esteem that comes with being a husband and a father…especially the father of teenage girls.
In his Stand-Up Adam mines the absurdities, ironies, and silliness that arise in the most humbling everyday situations (with which he is continues to gain vast experience). 
He won the 2013 Paramount Theatre Stand-Up Star Search. He has recently opened for Robert Klein, Colin Quinn, and Gilbert Gottfried. With Jon Cryer he wrote and starred in the film, “The Pompatus of Love.”  And he’s been nominated for Tony, Drama Desk, and Clio awards.
*The show is produced in association with LoHud Comedy
