    The Worst

    Thurs May 31

    9 - 11 pm

    Hong Komedy Guerilla (HKG) is an unconventional comedy show. It is a story telling show where seasoned comics will tell true stories, revolving around a set theme, about things that actually happened to them. The theme this time is "the worst." Expect the comics to be liberal with this theme; don't expect seven awkward dudes to be telling stories about the worst movie they've ever seen, or Donald Trump. The material is GUARANTEED to be fresh. Yes, none of this material has ever been performed, muttered or spoken out loud at any regular showcase in Hong Kong. Ever.

     

    Hong Komedy Guerilla is a collective of standup comedians who believe they have more than just jokes to tell. We want to tell stories whether they that are interesting, exciting, and heartwarming knowing that we can still deliver comedy outta nowhere from real life.

     

    Tickets: $120 includes 1 drink

    Available now through Art-Mate
