Lo-Fi NYC
Lo-Fi NYC
Lo-Fi NYC is the basement comedy show of your dreams. This fast-paced spectacle combines a classic 70's variety show format with the most freewheeling underground comedians New York City has to offer. Featuring sketch, stand-up, musical guests and sledgehammer giveaways, it's like The Muppet Show with fewer puppets and more destruction of property.

Created by Kevin Bauer (Good Morning Astoria) and David Rafailedes (Puppy Bowl XIV), the cast of Lo-Fi includes Blythe Roberson (Author, How To Date Men When You Hate Men), Sage Boggs (The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon), Karen Chee (The New Yorker), Matt DeCaro (Kitten Bowl V), Rachel Pegram (The Week Of), Noah Gebstadt (The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon), Rachel Joravsky (50 Central), Ayo Edebiri (The Rundown), Bob Vulfov (McSweeney's), Aaron Nemo (The Late Show with Stephen Colbert) and resident DJ/MC Taylor Gonzalez (deadassTV).
