Afterthoughts POP UP at The Storefront Theater

On Friday May 17th at 10PM, Afterthoughts will be at The Storefront Theater for a night of comedy and chaos!!

Afterthoughts is a stand up comedy roast show. Afterthoughts books the best stand up comedians in the city, and then a team of writers roasts them mercilessly after their set.

We've had so much fun with roasting comics we had to take it one step further. Halfway through each show, we bring up one (un)lucky audience member, ask them a few questions, and then we roast them ON THE SPOT! It's all off the cuff, it's different every time, and you never know what the comics are going to say. So bring your best friend, mom, or ex and let the fun begin.

LINEUP: TBA

5/17/19 10PM 10$

This is going to be a blast, so get your darn tickets here!
