Nat Towsen’s Downtown Variety Hour continues its multi-year run at UCB Theatre East Village on Monday, April 4, at 8 PM. Host Nat Towsen (VICE, Nickelodeon) combines the disappearing, eclectic lower Manhattan culture in which he grew up (around the corner from the theatre, in fact) with interviews, informative presentations, and the best of the NYC alt-comedy scene. The show features native luminaries as well as a few welcome New York transplants. This month’s Downtown Variety features
- Janeane Garofalo (Broad City, Wet Hot American Summer)
- Jonathan Braylock (Broad City, The Jim Gaffigan Show)
- An interview with Mike Bento (#BlackLivesMatter, Unite Against Fascism)
- Downtown History (know your city!)
- NYC Trivia (win prizes!)
Guest trivia host Jamela Zarha Williams will present a special 420 edition of “NYC Trivia,” in which audience members can win free pizza and comics from sponsors Two Boots and Forbidden Planet. Brewery Ommegang, another sponsor, will provide free beer to audience members at the bar while supplies last. Nat Towsen’s Downtown Variety Hour is sponsored by Brewery Ommegang, Forbidden Planet, Two Boots, and Prestone Printing
