Comedy as a Second Language Presented by New York Comedy Festival
“Thanks to the auspicious Chesley Calloway’s genteel hosting, the prolific Sean Patton’s comic derring-do, and solid booking from the Creek and the Cave owner Rebecca Trent, the intimate back room of Kabin is consistently overflowing every Thursday night for Comedy as a Second Language. More than that, however, this weekly stand-up showcase and its affiliated bar has become one of the shows comics themselves frequent more than any other. “Are you going to Kabin?” is a common refrain, and whether they’re performing or not, hordes gather weekly to commiserate, workshop bits and keep Friday morning at bay.”—IG
