Add to Calendar 17-07-2013 17-07-2013 15 Reverence for the Irreverent - A Benefit for George Carlin Way A night of comedy honoring George Carlin. The evening will feature special appearances by Eddie Brill ("The Late Show with David Letterman"), Rory Albanese (9-time Emmy Award winner as the Executive Producer and Writer for "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart") Nick Dipaolo (Emmy Nominated writer) Todd Barry (Comedy Central Presents, "Borrowing Saffron", "The Wrestler"), Kevin Bartini ("The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," "The Colbert Report," You Say Tomato, I Say Shut Up), Lizz Winstead (co-creator of "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" plus more celebrity special guests to be announced. For the past three years a group of dedicated George Carlin fans, led by comedian Kevin Bartini have been working tirelessly to petition the city of New York to name the street he grew up on in his honor "George Carlin Way." While thousands of people signed their petition and lent moral support to the cause the effort to honor Mr. Carlin was met by intense resistance by the local Catholic school and church that George Carlin attended which still takes up a large section of this block on 121 Street. After much debate and bureaucratic red tape, the committee to co name West 121st street George Carlin way is only a "yeah" vote by the city council away from declaring victory and finally paying tribute to one of the greatest comedians that the city of New York has ever produced! Being this close to the finish line, Gotham Comedy Club has generously offered their venue and has put together an all-star line up to pay tribute to Mr. Carlin and to raise funds to help cover the costs of this effort so far and to insure that those of us who hold George Carlin in such high esteem will inevitably be able to pay our tribute to him and have a place in New York City to commemorate all that he meant to us. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=142068 Gotham Comedy Club true DD/MM/YYYY
