Come to ‘Come to Papa LIVE’ at Moontower

One of the coolest events coming to Moontower this year is Come to Papa LIVE, the live version of the popular radio show hosted by comedian Tom Papa. For the unfamiliar the show features scripted sketches performed by comics, stand-up sets, and musical guests. Come to Papa was voted Best Podcast of 2013 by Time Out NY and regularly features comedy heavyweights like Amy Schumer, John Mulaney, and good pal Jerry Seinfeld.

The Moontower show will be at the Speakeasy on Friday April 24th at 10pm and feature Todd Barry, Dana Gould, Karen Kilgariff, Mike Lawrence, Bridget Everett, Pat Dean, The Derek Phelps Trio, and more.

Unlike many podcasts, Come to Papa is tightly scripted and bears more in common with classic radio than the sometimes aimless podcasts of today. This is a great opportunity to see your favorite comics perform together live in a show that will never be repeated. Highly recommended.
