Comedy Without Borders: A night in support of the NYIC

THU // MAR 14 // 06:00PM

Featuring a line-up of incredible comics from all corners of the globe whose work and humor have been touched by immigration, CWB is a specially curated show in support of the New York Immigration Coalition. Celebrating all that unites, rather than divides, us, CWB is a testament to the power (and necessity) of humor in the face of the politics of fear.

Doors 6:00 PM, show 7:00 PM.
Tickets $35 until Feb 15th, $45 after. $60 for a ticket +NYIC tote bag

A night of humor and resistance, CWB celebrates and supports our immigrant community at a time when policies and headlines provoke anger, desperation and fear. Our show includes sets from:
