The Kimmy Schmidt panel is set for Nov. 5, at 1pm, at the 92nd Street Y. You’ll recall that during her appearance at Tribeca Film Festival, Tina Fey gushed about the Greenpoint-based show’s co-creator Robert “master of jokes” Carlock. This time, they’ll be appearing together with fellow writers Sam Means, Dan Rubin, Leila Strachan, Azie Dungey, Meredith Scardino and Lauren Gurganous. Tickets ($40) are right here.
Later that same day, you’ll be able to head over to BRIC House in Brooklyn to catch Big Terrific. Jenny Slate, Max Silvestri, and Gabe Liedman started the comedy night at Sound Fix in Williamsburg in 2008, and it got drop-ins from Sarah Silverman, Chris Rock, Zach Galifianakis, and Aziz Ansari (this was before Zach was interviewing presidents and Aziz could shut down rooftop bars). Of course, all three members of the founding trio eventually moved to Los Angeles, and the show ended its run at Cameo last year (it’s now at Largo in Los Angeles). At the time, Liebman told Vulture, “It’s a bummer, but New York is done. That block is gonna be all Lululemon stores within a year.”
True to that statement, the trio isn’t returning to Williamsburg (Cameo closed just about a year ago, after all) but to Downtown Brooklyn, where BRIC House is located. Visit the NYCF’s website for tickets ($25) to the 6:30 and 9:30 shows.
