This Sunday, Sept 20, I'll be part of a unique comedy show in NYC featuring cartoonists from the New Yorker magazine and Bill Plympton of animation fame. We'll be doing improv cartooning and stuff (whatever that means) and it promises to be a rare evening of odd entertainment.
Here's the deets:
WITTY CARTOONS FOR SNOBS! Top cartoonists from The New Yorker and other crappier publications battle it out in a no-hold-barred cartoon-off with cartoons based on audience suggestions.
Dan Piraro (Me), Emily Flake (Lulu Eightball & The New Yorker), Drew Dernavich (The New Yorker), Bill Plympton (The Village Voice, Rolling Stone, Academy Award-nominated animations), Paul Noth (The New Yorker, Pale Force), David Sipress (The New Yorker), and hosted by Matthew Diffee (The New Yorker and The Steam Powered Hour).
Also, music by two of the best banjo players on Earth, Noam Pikelny & Tony Trischka.
