The Pitchforkian Hilarity You Would Have Seen

...had you been at the Metro Friday night: Aziz Ansari (who came in on a late flight but made the most of his stage time) and Eugene Mirman, being their hilarious selves. Also doing his magic at the Metro was Todd Barry.

The Bastion was tied up with family and work obligations, and can't decide whether we're more disappointed that we missed these fantastic New York comics, or the book signing appearance of Adrienne Barbeau, star of D-classics Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death as well as Escape From New York.

(EDIT: F.O.B. Robert Buscemi fills us in on the Metro show: "Mirman was funny as always, and Todd Barry did great. The crowd was huge, and both comics did lots of crowd work. Barry is really good at riffing. The crowd was much more attentive than you'd expect from a huge rock crowd, in fact much more attentive than when I saw Mirman last year (or whenever that was) at the Subterranean, when people were talking over him and opening act Leo Allen, who's also a really funny comic.")
