Big Apple Comics at American Flatbread Pavilion

New York City-based standup comedian Tina Friml returns to her hometown, with her favorite fellow NYC comics in tow, to bring the laughs in this three-part summer comedy series under American Flatbread’s new pavilion.

Join us for three Friday nights of laughs at the newly constructed American Flatbread Pavilion, where New York comic, Tina Friml, will perform along with some of her friends from the Big Apple!  “I’m totally over the moon for these lineups. These are specifically comics I’ve been watching recently bring the heat all over New York, at comedy festivals across the country, and anywhere you get your podcasts, and so to bring a new batch of them back to my hometown each month of the summer hardly feels real.”

This event is made possible due to a grant for free arts programming.  No purchase of food or drink required to attend, however American Flatbread will have food and drink available for purchase to those watching the performance.

Seating is limited to 100, so please register.

Emil is a stand-up comedian newly based in Brooklyn by way of Bloomington, Indiana. He made his television debut as a main focus of ViceTV’s Hunters and can be seen charming audiences with his comedy that was once described by his foreign parents as, “We don’t get it.” Equal parts self-deprecation and social consciousness, Emil has performed at the Limestone Comedy Festival, 208 Fest, the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival, and was selected as part of the “Best of the Fest” at the 10,000 Laughs Comedy Festival. Emil wrote a joke for the Comedy Central Roast about Robert De Niro that made him laugh, so he will be riding that high until De Niro has him whacked.
