On Monday night, Broken Comedy celebrated co-founder Michael Che’s 31st birthday with a full-on blowout. Inside an extremely packed backroom at Matchless in Greenpoint, Che hosted the night alongside co-founder and regular host Nimesh Patel.

Che hadn’t been around the show in a while as he’d been busy writing for Saturday Night Livethis season, and now he’s been poached to be a new correspondent on The Daily Show. Below are quotes from the heavy-hitter comics who made up, as Broken Comedy said, “Easily. EASILY. The most ridiculous lineup we’ve ever had.” Everybody, including Che, was asked, “What advice would you give Michael Che on his way to The Daily Show?”
