Sandy and Richard Riccardi ~ Political Snarkasm - Triad Theater
June 08, 2018 - New York

Political Snarkasm is a left-leaning show. Sandy and Richard Riccardi's show is a fun-filled hour of lampoons, jabs and jibes on a host of topical subjects. With mostly their own original songs, but with an occasional borrowed tune to which the pair wrote parodies ranging from puckish to cynical to contemptuous, they took sharp aim at, among other items, politicians, TV evangelists, Broadway musical wannabees, sexual orientation, and the Twitter explosion.

Freaknik - The Creek and The Cave
June 09, 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.

Seafood Mayhem - The PIT Loft
