Vocabaret: The Roast at Caveat
It’s time to put the diss in discourse.For years, we have celebrated and played with English. Frankly, it's given the language quite a big head. Join us on January 12 as we dot our i’s and cross our tease in the style of a classic Friars Club roast, as each Vocabaret host puts a part of the English language on the spot and tears into it.There will be no silent L’s in this room—we’re putting all the language’s L’s on blast. At Vocabaret, New York City’s most-decorated wordsmiths come together for an eclectic variety hour (and a half) of raucous wordplay, etymological deep dives, and alphabetic absurdity that investigates the intersection of language and everyday life, inspired by a new theme each month. It’s hosted by five heavyweight champions of the word: Sam Corbin, Tim Donnelly, Jerzy Gwiazdowski, Ally Spier, and Nikolai Vanyo. They’ve racked up more than 100 titles at pun competitions around the globe; written zingers and tongue twisters for broadcast, radio, and print; and once confused the heck out of America's Got Talent. Testimonials: "Sunglasses are a must or you will be blinded by their brilliance." - Barry Corbin, Sam’s dad "When I read that the show was about ‘conjugation,’ boy was I surprised when they started talking about verbs!" - Todd Farnsworth, a returning audience dad "We laughed. We cried. We wet our pants, and that's not just because we're old!" - Martha Farnsworth, a returning audience mom Come see the show that TimeOut has called one of the best “Things to Do” in the city and The New York Times praised as “a night of witty wordplay.”

This event happens every second Friday of the month from Jan 12 to June 14, 2024 at 7pm to 8:30pm.
