High Times Live
Sept. 25 at 8 p.m. at Wythe Cinema at Wythe Hotel, 80 Wythe Ave, Williamsburg; tickets $10 in advance, $15 at door
Here, at last, is your chance to ask members of the New York Times editorial board (Andy Rosenthal and Jesse Wegman, specifically) what they were smoking when the Old Gray Lady endorsed legalization. Or at least, High Times senior cultivation editor Danny Danko is likely to do that when he talks to them along with Michael Che, the Lower East Side-bred comic who recently moved to SNL’s Weekend Update anchor chair (Che will also do standup). Also involved in this eclectic evening is B+B favorite Dave Hill, Walter Schreifels (Youth of Today, Gorilla Biscuits, Quicksand), and some surprise guests. “Until I got high” is not an excuse to miss this one.

This monthly live talk show at Joe’s Pub finds writer, comic, and hostess with the mostess Catie Lazarus chatting with her guests about their diverse lines of work.
