Freaknik - The Creek and The Cave
July 14, 2018 - Queens
Starting in 1982, the city of Atlanta threw an annual party called "Freaknik" which essentially became the largest black spring break party in the country. The party became so big and wild that the city shut it down for good in 1996, but we're all in luck, because comedians Andy Sandford, Noah Gardenswartz and Steve Forrest are bringing Freaknik back, and they're bringing it to Long Island City! "Comedy Freaknik" will be a lot like the original Freaknik, except it's going to happen once a month, and it will be a comedy show hosted by three white guys. That's basically the ONLY difference.
