Gothamist's Laughable Hype | Pics

First of all, one thing needs to be said: Aziz Ansari is a Fuckin' Badass.

The Gothamist comedy showcase DELIVERED the goods. Hosts Paul Scheer and Rob Huebel stole the show with ZANY moustachioed antics. A great bit on cell phone ringtones featuring Orinoco Flow and the Charles in Charge theme song sealed the deal for The Apiary. Breakout star Nick Kroll dropped a neat set in which a pre-recorded Nick Kroll thought aloud over a live and bumbling Nick Kroll. Another interesting note is that Aziz continues to build as a box-office draw. Immediately after he finished his routine, about 15 people cleared the room. The show was bookended by Chelsea Peretti and Jessi Klein respectively.

Gothamist publisher Jake Dobkin was sighted taking candid(?) photos of the healthy crowd. Central Village, Daily Refill, and Brooklyn Vegan were also spotted laughing/grinning in the back of the house area.

Stellar job by everyone. Props to Gothamist for organizing the show and getting people out to see live comedy.

After his set 15 people cleared the room? That's not an audience draw, that's a horrible set. I, for one, won't book him after this review.
