Comedy Night at Knitting Factory

Hannibal Buress used to host this weekly showcase of up-and-coming comics, but now the duties fall on Clark Jones (who has toured with Buress), Will Miles, and Kenny DeForest. Get there early (doors open at 8pm): the event is free and has seen big-name drop-ins like Louis CK and Chris Rock, so the Knit’s front bar tends to get packed.

You’ll Want to Hit Hannibal Buress’s Birthday Party Sunday

Hannibal Buress really is the man of the hour: not just because he’s celebrating his 31st birthday Sunday, but also because he’s coming off a first season of Broad City that was so great it got name-dropped in a New Yorker cartoon, Seth Rogen just called him “the Jay-Z of stand-up comedy” in a hilarious interview over at Vulture, and his pilot just got picked up. (Actually, his tweet about that last one wasn’t quite true, as he recently explained to Conan). Oh, and his latest hour, “Live From Chicago,” drops Saturday at midnight on Comedy Central.

‘There Weren’t Any Pie Shops or Knitting Shops’ Last Time These Guys Rocked NYC

During some between-song banter at Red Hare’s live debut at the Knitting Factory last month, the band’s frontman Shawn Brown marveled at the contrast between Williamsburg today and his first time playing CBGB in the ‘80s with his DC hardcore band Swiz.

“I definitely remember the city being a little grittier,” Brown told Bedford + Bowery backstage. “There weren’t any pie shops or knitting shops, or anything like that on the Bowery.”
